The information found in these blogs are going to be a tremendous help to me in the future. At the moment, however, my enterprise is not using the AMT management functions. I will be doing some analysis for my group.My immediate need is a simple step-by-step procedure on how to disable all AMT features including BIOS and drivers to prevent an incomplete setup from causing issues. First things first, how do I completely disable this feature? Then, time allowing, I can learn how to properly setup and provision this feature.
I have three new desktops, with various errors in Windows pop-ups,and in theapplication event logs. (one example is : [UNS] Failed to subscribe to local Intel AMT., another error said AMT prvented system from booting)
I shouldn't have tinkered with these until I fully understood the provisining procedure, but I did.
The three systems are Dell Optiplex 755 with E6850 processors Core 2 Duo @ 3.00GHz. I have the Ctrl-P option to access the MEBx BIOS. I see no AMT related services running, and no errors in the device manager.

What do I do to get these features back to the default turned off state?
After looking at the errors that you have mentioned, it looks like your system doesn't have the proper Bios/drivers installed. Please visit the Dell site to check this. We had a similar forum question here. The Start Here Guide is a good document that describes various steps in properly configuring your AMT system.
That being said, you can always disable AMT from the Bios. For doing this, reboot the system and hit CTRL+P when it reboots - this will take you toME Bios settings, where you can disable AMT.
