    Default Windows Defender Error 0x80501001

    Can anyone please tell me if this notice below, which I received from Windows Defender is a problem? I assumed it was, so I chose the "deny" instead of "permit" option from Defender, but that's when I received the error message. Here it is:

    Summary:
    Services & Drivers Change Occurred
    Path:
    C:\ProgramFiles\sony\vaiopowermanagement\sonycpu.sys
    Detected Changes:
    driver: Sony CPU
    File:
    C:\ProgramFiles\sony\vaiopowermanagement\sonycpu.sys
    Advice:
    Permit this detected item only if you trust the publisher
    Publisher:
    Not Available
    Digitally Signed By:

    Product Name:
    Not Available
    Creation Date:
    12-15-05
    Size:
    1664 Bytes
    Checkpoint:
    Drivers

    Any advice about whether this is a danger and I was right in trying to
    delete it? If I was, what do I do now that I've received the error message?
    Thanks.

    Hi there.

    I was going to suggest you ask your question at one of the Microsoft newsgroups for their product.

    But I see you already did: http://www.microsoft.com/communities...c6d7793ab2&p=1

    If you would like someone to take a look at your System:

    Best regards.
