Do you have these *Icon programs installed on your PC?

I have a Dell WinXP laptop which has these two programs installed.
Googling doesn't get me any mentions of them.
Why do (just) I have them?

Do you?

They don't show up in the 'normal' WinXP add/remove programs
application but both show up in third party add/remove programs
listings, e.g.:

CCleaner Tools|Uninstall listings /

X-Setup Pro uninstall wizard listings

Do you show these two programs?
Do you just delete them as I did?
What do they do?

Dell ships with lots of third party crud.
Uninstall anything you don't think you will use.

AOL --> America OnLine
ELI --> EarthLink Internet

Since you get a choice of getting one of those free when you order the
Dell - best guess - that's the application(s) that installs/sets up these
trial offers.
