Corporate IT made Dell support assist mandatory (disabled ability to uninstall) on work Dell machines as it helped with automating updates.

I said this was a bad idea (& their whole update approach all round was bad in a few ways).

Still got Support Assist on my machine(as views ignored, obviously) but nice to be vindicated.
