Hello I have a weird problem. Our company received a Dell Precision M6400 laptop. Fresh out of the box I started to set it up. Right after I installed AutoCAD I did a restart as instructed. Now every time I log in the Control Panel launches. Now I've had this problem once before with a brand new Dell Latitude E5400, but with this once it started launching the Control Panel before I could configure it. I did look at the startup items but it looks fine and I recognize all the items. Does anyone have any idea? This is not a system issue, but it would be a huge annoyance to the user assigned to this laptop.

Most likely caused by the Dell Control Point Connection Manager.

1. Uninstall Control Point Connection Manager and reboot.

2. Go to Dell support Drivers and Downloads. Download and install the appropriate wirless networking driver for your system.

3. Reboot. The Dell wireless management tool should open on boot. Select the utility and uncheck "Let this tool manage your wireless networks".
