  • Dell Software seriously needs alot of work. It's full of obvious bugs, easily replicated, slow, and most often hangs.

    e.g. Dell Smart Settings, that came with my Dell Precision m6600 (Jan 11) Win7 Pro x64, the control buttons on the app is not clickable where the app box is reduced (not minimized to task bar) and unable to resize even when I click on the corner to drag it. Making the buttons not clickable.

    Secondly is the Dell Precision Touch Panel app will sometimes appear at the bottom left Win task bar and sometimes it will not show up. Very odd app behaviour.

    The only work aorund this is for the machine to have a complete reboot.

    I have complained several times to Dell Precision AP support, till now no respond and no updates.
