Process VzFw.exe on Sony Vaio

Hello all,

We have a Sony Vaio. When looking at the proccesses, we found out that this one VzFw.exe consumes a lot of memory. I looked on the internet, and it seems that it is related to a multimedia part of the laptop which is called Sony GigaPocket. Is it safe to remove this? How can I remove it? If not, how can I make it consume less memory? Right now it is using a lot of resources.

Thanks in advance

VenezuelanGirl the process is as follows...

1. Start > Run, type services.msc then press Enter.
2. Select the Service you wish to modify, right click and go to Properties.
3. Under Startup Type select Diable, if the service is started then press Stop to stop it.
4. Press Apply then OK, all done.

Hope this is ok.

Greetings, VenezuelanGirl !

You can remove Sonly GigaPocket.  You can end the process in Task Manager. You can disable it from starting up in options menu.

Or you can disable it in System Configuration Utility. Go to Start > Run and type msconfig
Go to Startup tab and uncheck VzFw.exe. Click OK.

Best wishes!

Or you can stop the service using services.msc, and if there is a future need you can always start it again.

Yeah I would recommend disabling the service using the services snap-in. Then as ch2 says if you need it again then all you need to do is enable and start the service again.

Thanks for the answers. Sorry for getting back this late to you.

War1: that's a good idea, but the process does not show up in the startup list, so I cannot actually disable it and thus remove it from running at startup.

ch2, martync_kc : how do I remove it using services.msc or services snap-in?

Thanks again
