Center Stage

I keep getting a popup saying that Center Stage won't start.  What is Center Stage?  How do I get rid of it?

Could be a software from apple or a software to purchase tickets.

Anyways... since you are receiving the pop-up error it is most likely you uninstall the software however the registry key is still present and wants to launch it on every boot.

This is what you can do assuming you have Windows 7.

1) Click on Start
2) Click on Run
3) Type "Msconfig"
4) Click on the Startup tab
5) Scroll down and locate Center Stage and uncheck it
6) Click apply
7) Choose don't show me and restart

Windows 8

Steps are similar except you need to launch Task Manager instead of MSCONFIG.
