    Hey Tony,

    The "AlienFX" power option in your screenshot is one added by the OEM for your Dell Alienware.

    If you can export and upload your registry key below, I'll be happy to take a look at it to see which entry may be for this, and create a .reg file that'll remove it for you.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings

    Ok. I think I found it. After you merge the .reg file below, open your Power Options to see if it's gone afterwards.

    Perfect. If you ever want to restore it, edit the .reg file, and change the "Attribute" DWORD value to 2 instead of 1 at the end.
