Install Inspiron the XP Quickset in compatibility mode.
Also change the compatability on the start menu
Next use task scheduler. Start it via a search from the start menu.
Go to actions > Create Basic Task
Follow the wizard, Name: Dell Quickset,< Next> Trigger: When I log on <next> Action: Start Program <next> select program, navigate to C:\Program Files\Quickset and click on the Quickset Icon. Then click finish. Almost done, at this stage it worked but I got a UAC prompt everytime I powered up.
The next step is to find Dell Quickset in the Task Schedular Library. Double click it and edit its general properties.
Check run with highest privileges. Now go to the triggers tab edit triggers
Change "Specific User" to "Any User" and make sure enabled is checked at the bottom left. Click
Dell Quickset should now perform normally within Windows 7. Of course it would have been much easier if Dell made an installer that could be installed on all Dell systems so this workaround isn't necessary.
