    The reason Dell had your disk configuration was because you selected Current Configuration so it did a scan of your pc rather than you using your service tag.

    If that's the case then it's only reasonable to ask, what else did they pick up with the scan? BTW, there were no dialog boxes asking if Dell could scan my current system.

    Just for the fun of it, I'm going to delete one of those partitions and then visit Dell's site and see if scan picks up two partitions instead of three. PC Doctor is gone, as are all of the suggested Dell programs. I'll report back as to what happened.

    Edit: I can report that Dell does *not* scan the current system.
    I deleted Drive D: and it still show that it was there.
    The drive free space is wrong compared to the current configuration.
