Solved Quickset Application Error Message

Apple / Iphone 4
January 26, 2014 at 18:31:35
Specs: Windows XP Pro SP3, 3.0 Mz/1.0Gb
I have a Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop. When I booted up, I got the following message:"Quickset: quickset.exe - Application error." The computer stopped; I clicked "OK" and then the start-up continued.

I did some research and found out that the Quickset file most likely has become corrupted. How is this problem resolved?

Thank you.

"My search showed:

2. Quickset at C:\ProgramFiles\Dell\Quickset"

Yep, that is legit & as already mentioned, all you have to do is remove the shortcut link in your Startup folder or use CCleaner. > Tools > Startup.

Dear Johnw,

I do not know the exact location of the file; I have not shut the computer off since that happened. (I am using a different computer for this message.)

Thank you.

If so, do a search.

I thought you may have meant "quicktime".
However, if it's a Dell, it seems quickset is Dell-installed software for power management on some of their laptops.

Don't know much about it, but to my mind It's just 'more stuff' running at startup.

I doubt you need this. You could uninstall it.
If you need to reinstall, download it from Dell's support site.

Johnw and Peet100,

Yesterday, when I got the error message, I noticed that there was a Quickset icon on the toolbar at the lower right screen. Today that icon is not there. When the problem.
happened, I ran Glary Utilites 4.

I found the quickset.exe file. Should I delete it? This file is used for power management, diagnostocs etc.

Thank you.

I already knew what it was & did.

I want to know where it is located on the drive to find out if it is genuine or a rogue ( infected ) file.

I'm assuming it's a Win XP laptop.

Quickset should be present in Add/remove programmes.
Uninstall it.

Peet100,

Yes, it is an XP Laptop; however, Quickset is not listed in Remove/Add programs.

Thank you.

Maybe the uninstaller has gone walkabout?

Easiest way may be to re-download Quickset from Dell (link below). It will overwrite the corrupt version.
If you wish, you should then be able to uninstall it from Add/remove prog's.
Otherwise leave it installed - though you may wish to prevent it running at start up.
(Disable it in the CCleaner startup list)
It's a non-essential programme - a part of Dell's 'bloatware'.
