Startup application quickset.exe is a taskbar application allowing you to quickly change power management settings. See our quickset.exe - Startup Application tutorial for more details.

If you want to remove quickset.exe from the startup application list to gain performance and reduce security risk, you can follow this tutorial.

There seems to be no way to use QuickSet's own configuration to remove itself from the startup application list. So we have to use HijackThis as startup application management tool.

1. Run C:\Program Files\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe

2. Click "Do a system scan only".

3. Locate the following entry in the scan report and click Fix Checked.

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Dell QuickSet] C:\Program Files\Dell
   \QuickSet\quickset.exe

4. Restart your Windows system.
