Dell Inspiron 530 with Vista.  No matter what I do, I cannot stop the Dell Support Center from installing on startup.  I've done the following:  Removed it by using Add/Remove in the Control Panel, unchecked anything that looked like it might be associated with this program from the startup tab in MSCONFIG.  Checked to be sure it was not a program in the Programs file in "Startup".  I give up.  What can I do to permanently remove this intrusive piece of code from Dell.
