The SoftModem Assistant is a program installed as part of Agere's SoftModem software, to permit complete configuration of soft modem devices. So-called ""soft modems"" are ones where some of the processing necessary to use the modem is done not by the modem hardware but by a program such as SoftModem. Thus, this program is necessary if you use such a device.http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/agrsmmsg.exe.html

Only dangerous if you feel that being "online" is seriously dangerous.. If you are on dial up (dbl clicking the little phone icon on your desktop) to surf the WWW.. ending this process will TERMINATE your connection.. So terminate it if you don't want to SURF.   Tommy the Computer Guy
