for the meantime try using an external mouse to control your pointer. Go to Sony's website http://esupport.sony.com/ look for the model number of your Vaio and then download the driver for your touchpad.
You can also try adjusting the settings of your touchpad by going to the control panel make sure that it's in Large or Small Icons view instead of category. Look for the mouse and touchpad icon.
if your system came with vista originally the issue would be is you would need to know what version of vista you have on your system, the version makes the difference if you have vista home premium then your windows 7 should be a win7 Home premium as well, because if you are upgrading vista using your win7 disc and your windows version are different for example you have vista Home premium and your win7 is win7 ultimate and you do an upgrade the problem will be your product key,
but if you have a retail version of win7 and you are installing it on your laptop Vaio insert the disc in the DVD-drive win7 needs a DVD reader to be able to install win7 if you have a cd-rom it wont work, then turn the laptop off power it back up keep on tapping f12 it should bring you a boot menu, select ODD or which ever is your dvd drive then press enter then enter again if it says on the screen press any key to boot to CD, this should begin win7 installation on the screen saying windows is loading files the so on ans so fort ^_^ this will over write everything in vista but in win7 it will still create a windows.old folder from vista only from the my documents folder my picture and my music and my video and desktop Items but remember application icons will not work on win7 you may need to reinstall the program again for it to work on win7 and yeah make sure that you choose custom/advance in the selection screen do no select upgrade unless you vista and win7 are the same version eg. Vista Home premium / Win7 Home premium ^_^
If you are referring to desktop font size, right click on an empty portion of your desktop, pick personalize on the context menu, and on the left side of the window, you should see "Adjust Font Size (DPI)". You can change the font size to larger scale (120 DPI) which should make the text larger. For web browsers, most should have an option to change the text size in the menu, but these steps would be different for the various web browsers available.
Without more detail I can give you a useful tip -make sure that you are running as Administrator. With Vista you cannot always be sure of this so when you start the program right-click on the program icon and if it is the executable then the menu you see will have the 'Run as administrator' option. Vista works overtime on saving us from ourselves so program anomalies are generally a permissions issue.
The first thing to check is the preferences for display. It sounds from what you say like it is there that the problem lies.
Right click anywhere on the desktop EXCEPT on an icon, and choose the bottom option "Personalize" from the menu that appears. On the left is an option called "Adjust font size (DPI)" start by checking that this is set to 96 and not the larger 120dpi.
You might also like to change the Theme back to Windows Vista and see if that fixes it. These options should change your screen back to the way it was.
To open Webroot, double click on the icon on your desktop or find it in the start menu. If it is the first time you are running the program, it will prompt automatically to update the definition file. However if it not the first time, once the program has opened click on "Home" on the left hand side of the open window. There should be two options-check for program updates or check for definition updates. Simply click on check for definition updates and you should be good to go :)
Use system restore to bring back the computer to a date before the one you started to have troubles with the screen. After this you may need to reinstall display drivers, as you installed an older version after getting in troubles.
