Excellent advice - thanks. Some people seem to experience problems earlier than others. Does this depend on the PC/laptop specifications as well as the OS and its updates installed?

Thanks so much. disabling "SoftThinks Agent Service" done. Hoping this will stop starting Dell Datasafe Local Backup & Dell Datasafe online on my windows 10 because I don't use it.

OMG!  It's 2019 and this solution is still relevant.  I thought I had DataSafe shut up, but it recently started popping up again. And telling it "Don't ask me again" just resulted in it immediately asking me again.  So glad I found your post!  I would have never associated "Dell Datasafe" with "SoftThinks Agent".

 

Thank you!

Didn't have the SoftThink process in Services.

Was able to remove the Dell DataSafe Backup with this command.

Uninstaller: "C:\Program Files (x86) \InstallShield Installation Information\{0ED7EE95-6A97-47AA-AD73-152C08A15B04}\setup.exe" -runfromtemp -l0x9 -removeonly
