On many Sony models, holding
alt + F10
(together) at boot will start the factory restore process
Alt + F10 is working fine to get factory default set up menu in Sony Vaio.
Thanks for your details
wait, so after the whole process, ur sony is like brand new, the way u bought it?

i have a recovery centre on my vaio so I went onto that then I pressed RESTORE COMPLETE SYSTEM. I thought I might need recovery disks but I didnt. After an hour it's like brand new. Plus because it's gone back to the original factory settings i've got two months free trial of mcafee security just like when I first got my vaio. I only restored my system because I had malware called FRAUD.ANTIVIRUS7 which was killing my computer but luckily thats now gone.

:) how simple.... was kicking myself as I had recovery disks for other laptops but not for the one I needed and I was getting problems as I went into windows and couldn't use it from my programs
