Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1526 Notebook ?

Dell Inspiron 1526 notice problem

\015 About every thirty minutes a notice Dell notice pops up that says \015\012\015\012''Thank you for choosing Dell''\015\012\015\012''Let us get the most of your new computer. Registering your dell is quick and easy. It will only take 3 simple steps to complete.''\015\012\015\012''Register to get the best support experience and take advantage of the best communications to Dell''\015\012\015\012It then lists three options. Register, remind me later, and decline. I used to hit remind me later, and it would go away and come back again in another thirty minutes. It has recently stopped doing. All it does is sit there no matter which of the three options I pick, and the task manager can't get rid of it because it doesn't count as one of the tabs. It continues to minimize any program I have up (games included), and show this pop up. The notice is starting to cause major lag issues while playing games, and I want to know how to either fix the glitch or get rid of the notice completely. Thank you.\015\012\015

Lets try this....go to the start button and click on run, type in msconfig and hit enter. A box will appear, look in the main window where the three dots are, these are startup choices, I would like to pick selective startup, then go to the top tab abd click on the startup tab. This is a list of everything that starts when your computer boots. Go through this, you may have to expand the header tabs at the top of the list so you can read what each app is, but the deal here is to uncheck everything you don't need to start just because windows does. What I mean is this only keeps the program frominitially starting with windows, it doesn't keep the program from starting all the time. If you want a program to start, you just click on the icon. This saves resources and aggravation if something is bugging you, like registration notices. Anyway, go through the list and uncheck everything except your anti-virus, spyware etc. Then go to the next tab, which is services. In there click on the box that says "hide all microsoft services". Look at what is left, is there anything that says Dell Registration or something like that....uncheck it, if you don't want it to run. When you are finished, click on apply and ok. Reboot the computer, if there were alot of things unchecked, you will notice a faster boot time and your system will run better not having all that garbage loading up at once. Good luck.
Tell it "decline." ....end of problem ...but your computer is not registered.
