Hi,
The process you are referring to is the Dell support agent. Have you tried re-installing or updating the software through Dell? If not try the following link to Dell support
http://support.dell.com/support/index.aspx
Alternatively you could simply remove the software from your system.

sprtcmd.exe is installed a s part of Belgacom services, through ISP's. If you do not need this service you could disable or delete the file/s. However that may not be a possibility. If not, sometimes the "User Profile Hive Cleanup Service" will help to close hanging applications. You could give that a try.

This file will be on your hard drive in location "C:\Program Files\Dell Support Center\bin\sprtcmd.exe" /P

If it is located elswhere, i.e.

Some malware camouflage themselves as sprtcmd.exe, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder.

It is a Dell file utility.
