    Do you have a recovery drive?
    You'll just have to talk to dell to get a disk.

    Go to run (alternatively, windows key+R) and type in "MSCONFIG"; press ok.
    Go to the Startup tab, find Jason paint, and uncheck it.
    Press ok.
    That should do it.

    BTW, a Dell's recovery will reinstate "Jason Paint" if it is indeed a dell program.
    @PYGMUS, I'm also confused about "Jason Paint".
