Everytime I start up my laptop the Dell folder pops up. It just says Dell and then its the folder open. I can close it and continue on to what I want to do, but it didn't do it before and now it's just really annoying. I want it to stop. Please help me.

Did you uninstall Dell's connection manager, or any other Dell program, for that matter, lately?

Download Autoruns for Windows: http://technet.micro...s/bb963902.aspx
No installation required.
Simply unzip Autoruns.zip file, and double click on autoruns.exe file to run the program.
Click Options, then Hide Microsoft Entries.
Click File, then Refresh.
Go File>Export As, and save AutoRuns.txt file to know location.
Attach AutoRuns.txt file to your next reply.

You have few unnecessary startups.
Open Autoruns, click on Logon tab, and UN-check following items (no actual programs will be removed):
- Dell QuickSet QuickSet
- DLCXCATS
- dlcxmon.exe
- dscactivate
- ECenter
- ISUSPM Startup
- ISUSScheduler
- iTunesHelper
- Messenger (Yahoo!)
Close Autoruns.

Restart computer.

You didn't UN-check any startups. They're still there.

I did a prnt scrn of the startup and what the autoruns looks like, to show you that I DID uncheck them.
But, I'm trying to upload them for you to see and it won't let me upload them. It keeps saying I didn't chose a file but I can see the file in there.
I tried to upload using, paint, wordpad, and microsoft word. It still won't upload for you to see.
