whenever I start Vista in my dell notebook, the dell quickset application
launches and opens its startup window. Is there anyway to stop it?

Thanks,

Gabriel.

Hi Gabriel,

When you next start your computer, bring up the Task Manager using Ctrl,
Shift and Esc. In the applications tab, you should find this application
listed. Right click on it and select 'Go To Process' in the menu that
appears. Make a note of the name that is highlighted. Close the Task Manager.
Next, open the registry editor from the Programs Menu (type regedit into the
search box). Open the keys
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce. Make
sure that you make a backup of each of these keys by selecting 'File' and
then 'Export' in the sub menu that appears. Give the files a suitable name.
If you make a mistake in the next part, you can then reverse the process by
merging these files into the registry by clicking on them. In the data that
appears, look for the name that you noted earlier. When you see it, right
click on it and select 'Delete'. Close the registry editor. When you restart
your computer, the application should no longer automatically launch.
