i have this 4"X3" screen that rolls up in the lower right of this almost new Del laptop. It is a querry for an upgrade to the premium Dell Datasafe local backup.

no matter what I have tried it just keeps coming back and occupying that piece of real estate on my screen.

Any thoughts out there that would make it go by by.

thanx

Call Dell and complain! Seriously that is the problem with almost all new computers. It is called bloatware and all manufacturers are guilty of installing it to increase profits. The only sure way is to do a complete reformat of the hard drive and install a clean operating system. since that is probably not possible in your case, like I said call Dell and have them walk you through removing it. Or at least hiding it at startup.

Each of these FREE utilities have a startup manager. If you start your PC then launch one of them you can see what is set to launch at startup. You can uncheck any item listed on a temporary or permanent basis. Just take your time and remember what you change. If needed write down the changes or start a Text file of startup changes and make a note of your change.

garym114 has provided the name. That makes it much easier.

My wife's had this too. I forget if it had a setting I disabled, or I uninstalled it using Add/Remove Software, or if I went into MSCONFIG and unselected it or simply deleted it in the registry CURRENTVERSION->RUN entries. I know it was one of the four!

From the web:
You don't necessarily have to uninstal.Here's what I did. When the pop-up showed up on my system it appeared at the lower right hand corner and the entire dialogue box did not show. I started Task Manager (Ctrl-Alt-delete), right clicked PC Angel Notifier, picked Minimize; Then I picked Maximize, and the entire dialogue boox showed up at the top left of the screen and here you can pick the box to don't show me this again!
