    Hi

    sm56hlpr.exe is installed with the Motorola SM56 modem drivers and provides functions for diagnostic and configuration for this device.

    Looks like a required file. Why is it poping up ? - zero clue. This question can probably be better answered in our Computer Help Forum.

    Hi

    OK...

    Based on Basementgeek's reply ...

    If you no longer have the modem installed (the file has been deleted) but the run key remains in the registry, then windows will still look for it when it starts up ... hence the error message ...

    Let us know if you still have the modem ?

    Post a hijackthis (which will show if you in fact have the run key)

    Download ...

    HiJackThis log - Trend Micro HijackThis 2.0.2
    Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    • Click on Install.
    • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" and Paste the entire contents of the log (no attachments) into your next post.

    DO NOT use the AnalyseThis button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.
    DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what HJT lists will be harmless or even required by your Operating System, a spyware fighter will guide you.
