francois A user came with it, although i actually managed to start the wifi with dell controllpoint (in the end...), the controlls are so arcanish and intricate that it will even make an IT-engineer cringe... so for a normal user it's just too much.
. Disabling it would have taken me the whole afternoon so i just uninstalled it (cause the bloatware is a whole package of uselessness it seems...) and now we have an happy user and a well functioning machine. If there is Wifi in hell, Dell controlpoint Connection Manager is probably the connection tool of choice there...
