    DELL data protection access

    We have just taken delivery of some shiny new DELL Precision T1600's to revamp our CAD Suite.
    They came installed with, amongst other bloatware with

    DELL data protection access
    DELL data protection access Middleware (say what now?)
    DELL data protection access Drivers

    Is it OK to uninstall this? I don't really see a need for it but don't want to break anything or remove it unnecessarily.

    Can someone advise me?

    ps
    They also came with Norton Internet Security! On a workstation!!!

    I would just wipe the system and start a fresh.

    Unfortunately I cant Image it yet. Due to the lovely licencing of Win7 VLK's don't exist like they used to with XP.

    So as we can't afford the VLK equivelent with Win7 these 14 PC's they have an OEM Win7 pro licence. So I can't just make a standard image as it wont play nice with the licence activation. Unless I've read it wrong...

    That was my thought too but doesn't OEM only allow one activation even on a pro version? DELL have already activated them.

    If I can do that then I will, but I don't want to have to phone M$ everytime I want to reimage a PC.

    Bloomin ek it worked! At least it appears to have. After I put the license key in it activated over the internet.

    A tip is, that if in "my computer > properties" the option to "change product key" isn't listed for whatever reason. At the start menu search for "SLUI 3"
    This will allow you to change the key and activate it.
