I'm running Win7 Pro x64 on a machine from Dell. I have no desire to run any Dell software whatsoever. I have got rid of what I can however the Dell Backup and Recovery Manager keeps coming up in my system tray. I disable it in MSCONFIG/Startup tab and up it pops after a restart. Before I uninstall everthing that says DELL on it, has anyone encountered this?

There are a few places to look to find startup programs

C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

or

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

or

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Win7 Pro x64 does not contain the file structure as outlined in the first two suggestions. those are for XP. The registry suggestion had nothing in that hive.
