Windows 7: Missing Link in Control Panel

Missing Link in Control Panel

I went into control panel then hardware&sound then power management. Now on the left sidebar where the options are, there is a missing link that Easy Transfer moved from my old computer but the file it links to is not there. I just got a toshiba notebook and the invalid option says @C:\Program Files\Dell\Quickset\Battery.exe which obviously shouldn't be there. I have tried a registry cleaner to no avail. Any tips on how to get rid of it???

bowler285, Please post a screenshot of this window.
Also, please indicate from which model of computer you moved that settings from.
And currently you are not using Quickset and are not planning to use it?

Technically you can download that Quickset, install it, and then uninstall it. It should pick up and delete that setting too.

That won't work

I have a Toshiba Satellite and I transfered from a Dell Studio 1737. So uninstall reinstall won't work because quickset only installs on dell computers.

Please check this thread in the Registry
that menu should be there.

Change menu values to nothing, but do not delete keys themselves.
Or you can apply the reg file attached.
