    Its sorted guys, just to let you know if anyone has the same problem, it was my dell help centre program that was dodgy, because it wasent right, windows installer wanted to load it everytime on boot up, to solve the problem delete program from add and remove, download the latest version from dell website, and load, you must delete old version first new version wont load unless you do, not like most programs which override old versions automatically. Hope this helps.:)
