RE: Uninstalled Dell System Detect but Icon still showing in Sys Tray after boot up

Jump to solution

I searched for msconfig and then disabled it. Then right clicked and went to the file location and deleted all files that said system detect. I think it's ok now.

Reporting this problem to Dell's developers would not only make life easier for Dell customers but also remove the risk of a high profile embarassement for the Dell brand image.

Software that does not uninstall via Windows Control Panel "Add/Remove Programs" is formally considered to be malware by all the major anti-virus manufacturers.

It would be bad for the Dell brand image if Norton, Kaspersky, etc. started flagging a Dell product as malware / spyware.

So if someone would formally report this to Dell they'd be doing Dell a favour.

Meanwhile thanks for the suggestions on how to manually disable this "spyware".  Your efforts are appreciated.

It's funny that Dell had to remove the profanities from the previous post.

Dell, you can prevent profanities in posts in the first place by having your uninstallers actually uninstall the programs they claim to. That would REALLY go a long way to serving your customers. Just a thought.
