    I am going to reformat my computer and install Vista back on it. Should I install DELL's Support Center program?

    I consider it spyware.

    Regardless, there is one simple rule to follow with software. Have a VERY GOOD reason why you want to install something before you install it.

    For example, you need to do your taxes, so you install turbotax. You need to check email so you install thunderbird.

    You don't need to look at a purple monkey so you DON'T install bonzai buddy.

    So answer my question: Why do you want it?

    I'm with Jolly on this one. It's useless crapware.
