It is a file from Sony for using hotkey's.
Ich dachte als erstes auf meiner suche nach einen ungewöhnlichen Prozess, dass ich diesen gefunden hätte. Noch komischer finde ich es das er keine Informationen giebt. Das eigenschafts Fenster wird nicht geöffnet und "Dateipfad öffnen" reagiert ebenfalls nicht, nach einer runde googel und 5 minuten später wuuste ich das es sich um ein service Prozess von Vaio handel. Entwarnung!

Best practices for resolving VESMgr issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with VESMgr. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem.
