utility program for dell, can be very useful for laptops outerlimit
Utility from Dell; very occasionally hogs all spare processor power for no apparent reason, causing everything to run at glacial speed. Process can be killed by Task Manager with no ill effects.  See also: Link Lois Wakeman
My Security Task Manager rates it as dangerous, maybe it is not, but it uses a Hook function to monitors keyboard input. By default, every file contains internal descriptive fields. Descriptions were not found in the file. I question why Dell would not maintain standards, perhaps the negative reaction from programs having keylogging capabilities. Particularly when attempts to access the Internet are also present. I am disgusted with the encrohment on our privacy for any reason, by any company. I want to know what every file on my computer is and what it does. I say kill it! Privacy1st

m1710 ,quick set on , makes the music sound like 80' vinyl record , you need to uninstall the program in order to listen the music the way it is , any solution to the problem ? please julito
In my case, this application actually allows me to see the volume bar when I turn up or down or mute it. banzai
Logs your keystrokes
Well, don't uninstall it just in case you might need it. Go to START RUN, type in msconfig, choose the Startup tab and simply uncheck it. If you ever need it again, then you can change things just by checking that box. Harry
@julito: Quickset doesn't effect my sound on M1710. You must have screwed something up in your settings... Very useful program, if you set it right (max performance) then it works fine. Moses
used (w7 laptops) to fix certain setting changes from not showing up on desktop. marie
Dell level 3 Tech states if Quickset.exe is not found in C:\Windows\System32 reinstall it (or) it is a virus or spyware The only other information I have discovered reguarding this perticular issue is associated with "DHS" There is no difinative information reguarding this issue other than dell is and has been recieveing many many calls reguarding this exact issue. Reinstall can be done with either your driver disk that came with your system or directly through them (only after purchasing either Norton or McAfee Security programs) No difinitive information could be obtained from dell on this.  See also: Link Whos Watching the Watchers
Maybe just a coincidence, but I downloaded a couple of "free" songs that worked fine. Then I had to re-boot due to a power failure and suddenly quickset.exe is hogging 30-35% of my cpu time. Used task manager to end process and all back to normal. Running Norton 360, but no indication of intrusion. Lee

It keeps pop up all the time in my dell labtop and I cn't get rid of it -- it really bothersome Leda Summer
Killing the process causes unavailability of seeing the volume and brightness controls which is not comfortable. Tenev
it caused a problem of stealing window's focus. take it out of star-tup programs
Nothing dangerous about it. It manages Dell's performance settings on laptops. Dale
Causes a lot of impact on startup. I disabled it. Tigress
QuickSet is a small utility program provided by Dell. Does not hog resources. Not worth the trouble of removing it even if you don't use it. Just ensure it is not infected, nor it is actually a virus masquerading as QuickSet.  See also: Link Hari

A Dell application. Preinstalled. Required for some features to work. Can be downloaded from Dell drivers. Provides power, display, performance, and extra feature management.
