DELL File and folder tasks and the folder is Media Experience. I dont want

my computer

I'm duessing it may be in the startup folder

go start-->programs-->startup

if there's anything in there that looks like it might be it right click it
and go delete.

You can safely remove the Dell Media Experience from your computer and
in fact it is desirable that you do so. It is buggy and often causes
problems with drag-and-drop. Uninstall it from the Add/Remove Programs
applet in Control Panel.

*What* still loads up on your desktop? Are you saying the Dell Media
Experience *folder* still opens on your desktop? Since you've
uninstalled the program, you can delete the folder from Program Files.
If this is not what is happening, please post back with a more exact
descripton of the problem.

I have uninstalled the Dell Media Experience but where the folder was still
loads on my desktop after my wall paper. The page is blue and white with blue
down left side. In the blue section there are two blocks 1: File and folder
tasks 2:other places There is a section called details that says Dell file
folder. This is all I know to tell about this. Hope someone can tell me how
to keep this from loading up on my screen every time I turn my computer on.
The picture of the media file is gone but not the page it was on

Did you go into Program Files and just delete the folder? Also, use the
System Configuration Utility to see what is starting with Windows.
Perhaps there is still a reference to the Dell program:

Go to Start>Run and type (without quotes) "msconfig" [enter]. This
brings up the System Configuration Utility. Look on the Startup tab and
find the probable culprit. Uncheck the box next to its name, Apply and
OK out. You don't need to restart immediately, but the next time you do
you'll get a dialog saying you've used the Utility. Just tick the box
that says in effect, "don't bother me about this again".
