It is nice to know that Dell is chipping in to help, at least when the 'see' "Dell" in the tag line.
I just hope that they do not expect to use this site for future customer help.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Well if they did, at least they would have better tech support than the rest of the computer manufactures ;)

Dell has created an entire network of spies (aka "listening command center") to monitor social media & other websites for mentions of all things Dell. They collect the data & act in whatever manner in most beneficial to Dell & the Dell image - public relations, free tech support (like we're starting to see in these forums), damage control, etc. Other companies are heading in that direction as well. It's way too Orwellian if you ask me.

"Dell is using social media monitoring tool Radian6 to power its data collection. The center will track on average more than 22,000 daily topic posts related to Dell, as well as mentions of Dell on Twitter. The information can be sliced and diced based on topics and subjects of conversation, sentiment, share of voice, geography and trends."

Use the restore point feature. See help and supported pages.

You then need to make standard user accounts for everyday use. No one should be on the administrator account. The admin account needs to have a good long password on it. Write the password down and make a password reset disk before you need it.

Be sure you have a good security suite on it. At least microsoft's security essentials.

I highly DON'T believe Dell support is helping on this website. It's just a ploy to get more people interested in Dell PC's....they are riding on computing.net's coat tails.

It's another form of Spam

Well that explains the generic responses like "In response to your query..." and whatnot that all the users from Dell use. They could at least write normally but I guess they want to seem more credible.

"If P = NP, then the world would be a profoundly different place than we usually assume it to be. There would be no special value in "creative leaps," no fundamental gap between solving a problem and recognizing the solution once it's found. Everyone who could appreciate a symphony would be Mozart; everyone who could follow a step-by-step argument would be Gauss..."

The problem here is that very often the post from Dell appears first and the more credible posts appear afterwards which means that the OP may not read further and therefore miss other important information.
