This is a background task that is installed with various telephony software products. It detects if you have a digital phone line (such as those used in offices) connected to your modem, as opposed to a standard analog line, since most modems won't work properly on digital lines. It is not generally needed on most modern PCs, especially since you should already know if you are using your modem, and if so, where and on what type of line.
If you want a detailed security rating about your DLG.exe (and all other running background processes) read the following user opinions, and download the free trial version of Security Task Manager.
Note: Any malware can be named anything - so you should check where the files of the running processes are located on your disk.
If a "non-Microsoft" .exe file is located in the C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 folder, then there is a high risk for a virus, spyware, trojan or worm infection!

|All comments about DLG.exe: |
| Came with Dell laptop to support Broadcom modem. It checks on boot and periodically if you are plugged into a digital PBX plug instead of an analog modem plug. I presume that it is attempting to protect itself as this situation used to destroy modem cards years ago. I think that most modern modems have some sort of protection now. Don|

| This file message "Digital Line detected" would come up because QTtask.exe would try to link for update when no network was hooked up. Using 98% of system the Quicktime file would try to connect through modem too. Recommend disabling auto update checkbox in QT. Other apps may be doing the same thing. Bob|
