SP1 now conflicts with Sony VAIO laptop drivers

Hi -

So far Sony hasn't had much to say* about the glitches that make Windows
Explorer unstable. The right-click menus always cause Explorer to close and
restart. Regular drag-and drops sometimes do too, somtimes not. Right now I
have a whole bunch of shortcuts that I want to organize and I can't.

I've tried using msconfig to isolate startup items, and so far I can't
pinpoint anything. The automatic error reporting did send me to Microsoft's
solutions page, with a link for a new (3-day-old) update to my fingerprint
software. That helped somewhat in that I can now drag and drop one or two
items, before Explorer freaks on me.

Sony's eSupport page for my model, VGN-TXN15P has no updates newer than
January, and I've already installed all of them before SP1.

individual software and hardware web sites.

Try in msconfig, disabling all startups, reboot, except the msg & retest.
If no change in msconfig, hide all MS Services, disable the rest, reboot etc
& retest
