When initially starting my Dell Dimension 4550, I get a message - "Support has encountered an unexpected problem and needs to close. Sorry for any inconvenience". It also asks if I wish to send an error report.
There does not seem to be anything wrong with my system, but this message delays my access to the system until I click on either send or don't send the error report. The message disappears after I click the box. It is not a great problem, but is very irritating every time I switch on my system. Is there any way to stop this message from appearing?
I am using Windows XP Home Edition.

Start > Run > type MSCONFIG > startup programs. Find the Dell program and uncheck. This will require a reboot.

Another way is to download Winpatrol. Winpatrol makes it a lot easier to identify the program you want to take out of startup. Winpatrol is a free download.
