Whenever the computer is restarted the Dell folder opens up and has to be closed. Is there anyway I can keep it from showing up?

The window has Dell in the upper left corner. Then there are seven folders:

Digital Jukebox Drivers
Sare DLL
Training Icon

Most likely this is an error caused by an entry that's trying to load a program that no longer exists (and was in the Dell folder). To track it down, use this free program: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/Autoruns.mspx

Most likely it will be a Dell utility and the Image Name will point to a program in the Dell folder. Comparing the filename in the Image Name to the files in the Dell folder will let you figure out which one is missing.
