    No search I could figure out revealed a program called VAIO Control Center. There were plenty of shortcuts to it, but it, itself, has vanished from my computer, I assume following the installation of Window 7.

    Any suggestions as to how to retrieve it or get around this problem?

    Thanks!! Was driving me nuts!!
    Now, couldn’t somebody tell the nice Sony Vaio people to organize this in some more intuitive, user-friendly and easy-to-find way? Like, for instance, activating the ‘Disable’ button when you look at Mice and Poiinting Devices in Control Panel.

    Annetta,
    look at the Start Menu. It’s usually there, among other programs.

    Thanks very much for the info. I wish there was a button to turn it off, or at least a programmable one that could be used that way.

    Oh well!

    I got SONY VAIO C Series VPCCA15FG. It has VAIO Control Center and its working fine. However, every time I press the F1 button and hold the Fn key(I also did holding Fn then press F1), the touchpad does not enabled/disabled. I don’t know if there’s something wrong. Anyone who has the same problem with me?

    Once I tried to find a way to disable touchpad quickly for one of the VAIO laptops when I connect USB mouse. After I got crazy struggling with it, I’ve made this utility – http://www.averk.net/untouch.html
    So far it helps not just for VAIO touchpads, but any kind of touchpad or other pointing device.

    Thanks, you gave me a lot of guidance. However, you can press Fn + F1 and that’s all.
