The MY CLUB VAIO is of no interest to me, but I cannot find where the program loads?  It always loads up during startup, and is buggy so sometimes it hangs - very annoying!!!  I've checked all the startup programs but cannot find anything that indicates MY CLUB, and I'm reluctant to remove straight VAIO stuff in case this is loading SONY microcode?  HELP!

    How to remove "My Club Vaio" from startup:

    Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Sony\MyClubVAIO\MyClubVAIO.exe and delete the offending programme. Then delete the folder if you wish.
    There is also a shortcut in C:\Program Files\Sony\MyClubVAIO which you may delete to remove traces.

    Alternatively you should be able to stop My Club Vaio.exe from starting if you go to start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Scheduled Tasks. Then dis enable the MCV entry.
