Turning Off Vaio Messenger

Hmmm . . . I thought of uninstalling it but wondered if Sony ever used it for worthwhile messages, like recalls or the like. Probably not so I'll uninstall it, too. Thanks!

To uninstall Vaio Messanger:

Click the 'Start Button'

Open the 'Control Panel'

Click 'Uninstall a Program'

Select 'Vaio Messanger'

Click 'Uninstall'

 

Note: Vaio Messange wasn't listed with the other Vaio programs. It was by itself out of alphabetical order.

Re: Turning Off Vaio Messenger

If you don't want to uninstall messenger try turning it off in the Task Manager.

Hold down the Ctrl and Alt buttons and press the Delete button at the same time.

Click on Start Task Manager

The Task Manager window will pop up.

Select the Application tab if it is not already displayed.

Select Vaio Messenger and click on End Task button at the bottom of the box.
