    SmartByte Network Service

    So recently Dell have added 'SmartByte Network Service' and Diagnostics. Apparently it makes streaming more fluent or something. Problem is, I don't want it! but if I try and uninstall it comes right back. It takes up a fair amount of CPU, AND my internet is slower. I have no use for it yet it is forced on me. Anyone can suggest how to get this forced software off my Dell Laptop. Why do they automatically think everyone wants this anyway?

    It appears that Dell has it installed by design. You can use The PC Decrapifier

    Looks like Decrapifier came up with nothing, nor is it in the 'Everything else' list. Looks like I'm stuck with it then. Thanks, Dell!

    Nevermind, O&O ShutUp10 got rid of it for me. Honestly a simple this software does X,Y,Z... would you like this installed? Y/N would be helpful

    You can stop this service by going to the Services tab in your Task Manager, right click on the Status of running and change it to stopped. (I read this somewhere else; I am not really this smart)
