Dell Support Assist

I know that for those who might have subscribed to Dell support this would not be classed as a Virus & Malware. However I don't subscribe and the bloody thing is popping up on screen telling me it is going to start its scan in 30/29/28/27....
Two options Run Now or Run Later. Run Later leaves the dialog box on screen for hours(probably 30 seconds to a minute)

I really want a third option "Feck off and never run again"!

Any hints as to how to get the third option?

Clicking on Start you should see it in the list of programmes in a folder titled Dell. Im not sure if there is an uninstall option there. However if you open the Control Panel and Select "Programmes and features" and then "uninstall a programme" you will see it. Its called DellSupportAssist. Highlight it and you will see an option then to uninstall.

Hope that works for you.

Thanks - couldn't see it in the pop up start and so was confused as to how to remove. As you say it was in the list at Control Panel - something I've often used before but haven't needed in so long it went off the radar. Ta for the heads up.
