Those are pesky little scoundrels

Man, life of a windows user is hard, isn't it?

I have been trying to find solutions to those but to no avail

more of the last two started appearing when I used Macrium Reflect Free to restore my system. Plus when Returnil is enabled those seem to pop up regularly. BTW, what restore point? my restore feature was disabled when I was creating image by means of macrium reflect...

Are you having problems with anything other than the errors in Event Viewer?

ummm not really
so you're reply will be: you have nothing to worry about right?

trial and error procedure proves that: my rig is doing fine

I got a reply from a cool moderator at returnil saying my issue is in fact a non-issue

yet I'd love to get a decent solution for atikmdag...

You read my mind!

I cannot locate the specs on your system. What country was it purchased in?

I suspect that it has this video chipset: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570

These are the beta drivers from ATI: ATI Catalyst? Mobility Display Driver
They suggest you get the updated Win7 drivers (non-beta) from Sony

Brand new addition:
The HomeGroup Provider service depends on the Function Discovery Resource Publication service which failed to start because of the following error:
Error ID 7001

I chose UK and still got german titles oh well hope you can infer from it what's necessary anyways
Vaio : Sony Europe : Specifications

'These are the beta drivers from ATI: ATI Catalyst? Mobility Display Driver'
glad you found something cause i simply wasn't able to find anything

'They suggest you get the updated Windows 7 drivers (non-beta) from Sony'
Understandable yet haven't been able to find the bloody drivers...

I'd suggest you post a screenshot of all your Windows Services for comparison, as some of the errors you're getting could point to one or two service failures - and if something's not right at this level other posters can usually quickly put you correct and get anything sorted
