“I’m the administrator, but whenever I try uninstalling Dell SupportAssist instead of a box popping up saying its being uninstalled and asking me if I’d like to install it, even though it’s already installed. How do I get rid of this thing?”
"I was able to uninstall the darn thing finally. Although I have no idea why it kept popping up saying "Dell has detected your hardware is failing, and was prompting me to order new hardware for the PC."
