centerstage failed to complete operation

Ever since I got this laptop after all programs on startup have launched and I begin to use the machine a message pops up that say's "The application was unable to complete an operation".

 

The application appears to be "Centerstage".

I can't even find this program anywhere in hard drive to remove it.

 

HELP!!!

Hello Ed Gonzalez,

 

It seems the issue is related with VAIO Messenger. Refer the following link for more information:

http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/documentLink.do?externalId=C1016148

 

Try disabling pop-up notifications.

 

  1. In order to disable, click on settings icon in VAIO Messenger folder located in Windows Start menu.
  2. Next, access settings menu to configure.
  3. You may also click on settings button located at bottom of VAIO Messenger inbox window.
  4. Once settings menu has opened in a new window, uncheck box labeled "Reminders when I have items in my VAIO Messenger Inbox".

 

If the issue persists, uninstall then reinstall VAIO Messenger:

Re: centerstage failed to complete operation

Thank you very much!  I followed al the instructions and completely removed the programs as instructed on the links you provided and not only did the message stop reoccurring but the machine starts up and is ready to use much more quickly.
