Could anyone please tell me what SMDialog is and if I need to get rid of it? I have noticed that when I start up my computer, SMDialog appears in the Applications tab of the Windows Task Manager. I have found very little information when I googled it. One site said, "This signature detects attempts to exploit a known vulnerability in Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE). IE 5.5 is vulnerable; IE 5 SP2 and 6.0 SP1 are not vulnerable. IE does not confirm that multiple open browser windows are operating in the proper security zones; attackers can obtain sensitive information from the host cache." If this is something malicious, I definitely want to get rid of it, but have not been able to find any sources stating how. Thanks for any info!

Hi Kristen. Let me guess, a HP computer/laptop? If so,


Fixes an issue where the notebook displays a "SMDialog Not Responding" message after pressing the "M" (MediaSmart) button at the top of the keyboard area.
