    Does anyone know how to uninstall Sony Vaio remote play for Playstation 3? It is running in the background on its own, and I don't know how to stop it from running. Appguard is blocking it in the background from performing certain actions. I'm using Sony Vaio Laptop model VPCEB46FX (windows 7 x 64)with all the latest service packs. I don't see remote play for Playstation listed under uninstall a program, turn windows features on or off, or in the task scheduler. I don't want the feature since I do not play video games, and I consider it a security hazard. When using msconfig I see the following services below under the service directory that I believe could be responsible for Remote Play for Playstation 3 running in the background. I'm not sure if disabling one or more of these services down could cause problems. I may need to contact Sony in the end, but maybe someone else here has already dealt with this problem.
