Hello,
I have a Dell Precision Mobile (M6700). One of the processes running is a program named SmartSettings.exe. Using Task Manager, under the processes tab it shows this program using 32,040 K of memory. This process uses more memory than any other and I have no idea what it really does or if it is even necessary.

I am trying to free up memory usage and am wondering if anyone can shed some light on this process, what it does and is it necessary to the operation of this computer.

Thanks,
Charlie
