BTW when I bought the sony Vaio, I did not get a copy of the windows XP, so I can't just remove and reinstall anything I want. However, there is an installed Vaio recovery wizard which bring back the laptop to an out of box state. If I format the computer i would lose all my work.

Re: your other thread.

Try this first.

Re-install daemon-tools, then remove it again using the add/remove applet in control panel
