Sorry about my previous post, it is auctually used to access a network storage device.  If you  go to mycomputer, look if any device is labeled as a "Network Drive" if there is, right click on it and select disconnect.  Then You should be able to uninstall the software by going to the control panel, selecting add or remove programs.  Navigate through the list for the program and click uninstall or remove.

    okay then, go to google, and search for a program called "Darik's Boot and Nuke" this CD will immediately destroy all data on the Hard Drive, then you need to reinstall the Opperating System, and any othere programs. Either that or you can purchase an ActivCard and get on the computer that way.

Dell Latitude D600 won't go past the Dell startup screen

Tap the f7 or f8 key, when you turn it on, it should go into safe mode, Go into start programs, accesories, tools, and restore, select restore, select a date closest to today and let it go through the restore pocess, if it suceeds and starts up, rub a good virus program right away, it sounds like you picked up a virus or trojen, just be patient and it shoul be ok, if it won't go into safe mode, let me know, that will require more work. And before you do anything, unplug, remove the battery for a few minutes and replace, try it and if it still won't run, do the above, thanks ,GYM

The ActivCard is a security ket that looks like a simple flash drive, and allows only the person who has it to use the computer.  Either contact the person who you got the computer from, and ask them if they have it,  or you will need to completely erase the hard drive, and reinstall the opperating system manually.
