    Dell Removal Patches For Their Second Problem. (New Pc's With)


    Regarding those two bad items (virus' ?) that Dell included with
    their new shipped PC's after, I think, Aug. of this year.

    Blame it on my age now, but I don't recall their names.
    One of them, had something like "Dellroot...", I think.

    They issued a simple patch for the removal of the first.
    I did that one.

    Have they issued a Patch for the second one yet ? IF so, Where can I find it ?
    I really don't want to go thru a 17 step removal process.
