Dell DataSafe Local Backup, Runtime Error (DSUpdate.exe)
I have a Dell Inspiron 5721 running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. It came installed with Dell DataSafe Local Backup. Periodically, I get this "Runtime Error" message (see below) when it tries to run DSUpdate.exe. I called the Dell DataSafe tech support and their "solution" was to uninstall the program and re-install it. Well this worked (at least at first). Now I continue to get that annoying message (which I just click 'OK' and close it).
1) Why am I getting this message on practically a brand new laptop?
2) How do I resolve this? Can this application be deleted, or should I leave it as is?
3) What does this application even do (is it needed)? Is it bloatware? My laptop did not come with any factory installation CDs so I really can't do a clean install if something were to happen (not sure if that is even relevant to my question) ..
I know I'm not the only one that's experienced this, so my question is what is the correct solution to this issue?
