Sony is one of many computer manufacturers that provides proprietary software with its computers. If you purchase a Vaio laptop, such as one of the business models, you have access to Vaio Care. This programs allows you to easily defragment your hard disk and search for registry errors. If you prefer to perform these actions manually with the utilities that Windows provides, or with different software altogether, you can disable Vaio Care from running and updating on your computer.

Step 1

Click on your "Start" menu button or orb and choose "All Programs." From this folder, hover over "Accessories" to expand that folder and click once to open "System Tools." Alternatively, you can type "Task Scheduler" in the Windows search bar and click the link when Windows locates the application.

Step 2

Select "Task Scheduler Library" in the left pane of the windows, once the scheduler loads.

Step 3

Click to highlight "Vaio Care" when it appears in the middle pane of the Task Scheduler.

Choose "Disable" from the "Actions" list in the right pane of the window. You may now exit the Task Scheduler by clicking the "X" in the top-right corner.


  • You can access the Windows disk defragmenter from "System Tools" within the Start menu, instead of using Vaio Care.
