Personally I'd completely reinstall it if you want to get rid of the all the Sony shit.
But that would mean a windows license (if you use the recovery disk you'll get the same shit back).
Assuming you don't have one of them, your options are pretty much Linux, or a pirate copy of Windows (with all the problems that brings). And you still may need some Sony drivers to get things like hotkeys working properly.
My choice would be Linux, no virus issues, unless it's the latest hardware things like hotkeys should be dealt with, the only issue is getting used to a new operating system, and you can't run MS Word, but OpenOffice is fine for most purposes.

Because there isn't really a simple list. I've had Sony laptops in the past, and it's pretty hard to get rid of some of it, it's so deeply embedded into the OS, delete the wrong thing and you'll stop something important working.
I've tried in the past, and in the end always opted for the easy option, install from a vanilla Windows disk, or install Linux.
