Hello. I just received a Sony VAIO VGN FE41E Notebook as gift from a very good friend who live in Italy.My problem is that the notebook is made to run Vista on it and i really need to run XP.
On their website, they say that the only solution to have xp on this notebook is to install the drivers for Sony Vaio VGN FE31B. I downloaded and installed those drivers and almost everything works fine, but the very big problem is all the drivers for VGN FE31B has the virus jeefo32.
 I found a cleaner for jeefo32 but i`m not very sure my system is safe now, so please, could anyone provide me some CLEAN drivers for VGN FE31B ? Thanks in advance.
 P.S. : If i posted in the wrong section, i apologize.

Try to re download them. From my experience sony site is pretty virus free for the most part. I would run  malwarebytes, spy bot and then a anti virus like panda or avg. If you do ok with those then your good to go

Sorry to say , but your post is useless. If Panda or AVG can't detect at least "jeefo32" there are a lot of antiviruses who ill do it , for example Kaspersky or Mcafee. Really need a good solution.Thanks

how would that be considered useless? but other then that run hijackthis, post a log or look at if for yourself then you can tell if you have an infection. also malwarebytes will detect and remove more then you may think. along with that  Kaspersky and mcafee will also give many false negatives. so to say they would remove it, and panda or AVG couldnt i cant truly believe that.

Hey, hey :) i didn`t said  the antiviruses you specified are not good.I know they disinfect /remove a lot of viruses or malware, but please pay attention.I asked for CLEAN drivers.I am not interested to install an OS and immediately after installing the drivers to disinfect it. Its annoying to do this. Sorry if you think i wanted to upset you. Thanks for understanding.

Unfortunately, i can't post a hijackthis scan log, because i removed the jeefo32 with a tool i found on google, i don`t remember the name, all i remember is that was a .bat file. :/

hijackthis will give you the running processes. So to scan with hijackthis only that folder wouldnt be able to really tell anything at all. i did download the drivers from the like i had a little problem with getting them to download. But then i scanned with panda, malwarebytes, along with spybot. that they seemed to be ok.
