Solved Dell Dock errors that keep appearing on laptop

Specs: windows vista
My old laptop with Windows Vista is still plodding along but has started showing windows that read 1) Dell dock has stopped working and then more recently 2) DellDock.exe - Application Error: Application has generated an exception that could not be handled; Process ID = 0xb0c (2828); Thriead ID = 0xf3c (3900); Click ok to cancel the application; click cancel to debug the application.
With problem no.1 I can simply close the windows and they go away but with no.2 the window won't respond to anything and although I can still carry on with stuff on the laptop, the error notification is always there. It won't always reappear when I restart the laptop but it happens regularly. Any ideas out there?

✔ Best Answer
First, run MSCONFIG.exe and under the 'startup' tab you should find Delldock.exe is listed - simply untick it and then restart - the error message will have gone (though you will initially get a message about disabled startup items). If you want a more permanent, & tidier, solution then download & install CCleaner - under the 'tools' option there's a 'startup' tab where you can disable it.
