kevmac OpenManage Client Instrumentation (OMCI) is a software agent that is pre-installed standard on all OptiPlexTM systems and is available as an option on all Dell PrecisionTM workstations and all LatitudeTM notebooks. Used in conjunction with management console software, such as Dell OpenManage IT Assistant or third-party products, OMCI enables administrators to collect hardware inventory and configuration information, receive proactive notification of potential fault conditions and remotely perform BIOS updates on one or a group of Dell systems.

Dell driver in c:\windows\system32\drivers . I needed it to install Dell Acess Direct software that allows one touch internet browser launch.
Peter A my Dell laptop continually asks for omci.sys but fails to read it
Midnight Engineer The OMCI driver for Dell systems only is an interface between the BIOS CIM information and the Windows WMI allowing low level reporting and modification of the computer without a reboot. Common usage is to turn on/off Wake On Lan functionality. It is safe to uninstall using Add/Remove programs. as a System Driver do not just delete it.  See also: Link
