nview_info is the nView Desktop Manager of your nVidea graphics card.
Unless you are running dual monitors it is unnecessary. Problems with it are widely posted.
You can stop it from starting via start | run msconfig | startup (uncheck it) or use ccleaner's Startup tool.
Something to do with Sony perhaps?
Any idea what program this is associated with?
Dr Watson debugger.
Most people don't use the debugger, anyway. If you want to disable him, run regedit.
and change the value of Auto to "0" including the quotes. It is probably "1" now.
If you'd rather just control what the good Dr. does when there is an error, Run: drwtsn32
and set the options.
What is the problem you are having with activation? have you tried doing via the phone option.
