    Hi Brian, and thanks for that. But have you any idea how to do this in Windows 8.1? There is no “Exit” option when right-clicking the “Dell Backup and Recovery Protection Index” icon in the task tray, and there is no DBRM folder or DBRM.ini file in the C:dell folder. The program also doesn’t appear in the CCleaner “startup” list. Yet the icon always appears – they seem to have protected it well.
