There is a sony SDM monitor .. do you have one of those attached?

Cisco uses that terminlolgy (SDM) to refer to its Switching Database Management for its routers.  Cisco router attached?

Found one user asking similar question at HelpTalk.net (SDM Alert) when using a game.  No reasonable solution was given.

If this is duplicated, please bear with.  Reload AND Refresh indicatee that my previous comment is NOT here, however my RELOAD rarely shows my last comment ....arrgh.


I would post this question in Win98 and Hardware being sure to put "SDM Alert" in the title.  I doubt that it is Access related and someone may have encountered that alert elsewhere.

You are right I did get a Virus PE_Nimdaa I think that is how is spelled, I have PcCillan which cleaned out the virus and I re-installed office. I am running Windows 2000, looks like a re-install of that to.
