This process is installed by default on Dell computers that have an Access Direct key. It allows the user to choose a specific program to link to this key, then watches to see when it is pressed and launches that program. It may also play a role in supporting the operation of other function keys on Dell notebooks. While likely not needed for system operation, it is recommended that this be kept running to ensure full functionality.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/dadkeyb.dll.html

This is not a false alarm. It is, in fact, monitoring your keyboard. But it is not a keylogger, is known to be safe, and KeyPatrol knows it to be safe. It is nothing to worry about.  See also: Link rgarbell

cpu usage 95% must be bad thing right,must be hidden trouble grandpajerald
This only includes Inspirons, for the most part. Unless your other Dell Computer has the Access Direct Key. It uses a basic program to link a command to the special key. Most people use it for there Web Applications, like I use it for my encryption software. I push the button and my program pops up. Not harmfull at all Timothy
It's a keylogger,not sure what it gives out?But the keylogger program shows it runs all the time. I was going to kill it,but not sure what would stop working? Auto updates from Dell I think?It's self aware it installed the printer by it self!And knew what type the make and model number and even set up a test page.Keylogger!Whatever it is? Has total access to my harddrive! Kush

I don't like the idea of dell installing drivers to capture keyboard input. Why don't they use the installed remote support built into windows to remotely support their customers. This is an invasion of privacy, since this is hidden and we cannot control it's application.
The real question is whether or not it can be safely deleted. Strawberry
this file is not dangerous it come directly from dell..its only monitoring keystrokes to see when the user presses the accessdirect button. when the user presses that button the program lauches an application chosen by the user. jamez515
it's part quickset, which I just downloaded from Dell.com and installed. It monitors keyboard input so that it can recognize keyboard shortcuts for things like standby, activating a wireless card, or ejecting a cd. Jimmy

I use to run security taskmanager beside anti-virus to see possible marmfull software installed on my laptop and this utility gives the maximum rate ( 100%) to dadkeyb.dll as potentially dangerous. Emanuel Areas
This .dll is part of the install of Dell Quickset. Quickset is installed on Dell laptops to access various functions such as backlit keyboard, xps lights, etc., via the OS. DELL XPS M1730 User
I found this file on security task manager very recently. It just popped up out of nowhere and didn't have a description, title or company name on it. I am quarantining it for that reason mostly...If its part of Dell Quickset why doesn't it say so? Could be malware IMHO and I don't really need it anyway... Delorean_Fanatic
My guess is dangerous, as soon as i removed that file, the XP security fake Virus pop-ups disappeared. Patty E
This part of the Dell Quickset Application that allos quik access to functions like volume up, down, mute etc Joncado12
