I have just done a wipe and reinstall on my Dell laptop (with whatever Dell supplied originally), and I have this registration wizard showing in the start menu.

I can not see that I have any programs called I.R.I.S. or OCR anything like that installed, or at least I can not find them in the add / remove programs. I don't want the program and I don't want to register it but I'm not sure how to get rid of it either, should I be concerned?

Thanks

OCR and IRIS are text recognition technologies. Instead of you typing in a big long document, you feed it into your scanner, fire it up and it types up the document for you automatically under this technology. You may have to proofread it but the bulk of the work will be done.

Thank you for clarifying.

I have another question, do you know if it is normal that these come pre-installed? I am not sure of the content of the Dell 'pre-installed package', and since I couldn't find them in the add / remove programs I got confused. (I am easily confused :whistling: )

IF you used Dell recovery media the chances are the software was preinstalled in the first place. Different manufacturers preinstall different things from system to system depending on the marketing angle. In years gone by some manufacturers supplied copious programs, games and other stuff, however the recent trend is a copy of Windows, a copy of Works and a copy of McAfee/Norton and Nero, all of which are if you're lucky. Far cry from the days when you got an entire software library with a new computer.
