A week ago I recieved my new printer from Dell, and ever since I installed the printer there is a PhotoGallery program that keeps trying to install, but of course none of the discs that came with the printer have the components the installer is looking for. How do I clear this program so it won't keep trying to install?

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit the select all, right click any file, click delete, confirm

Click start then run, type msconfig then press enter, click start up to look for any entries for the programme, remove any, click apply, reboot, when windows loads, tick do not stat the configuration utility

Insert the Dell CD, cancel auto run, click start them my computer, right click the drive with the Dell CD, click explore to look for the programme

With Dell Printers, choose custom install if it is an option then load only the things you need
