    What does SmartByte software do?

    I have a Dell laptop and in checking some of the apps in Menu found SmartByte. It seems to test upload and download speed, but what does it do other than that? How is assisting me?

    They have this to say about it in Dell's own forums:

    Beware of SmartByte
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I did uninstall and all seems to be working. As I understood what I read about what it is suppose to do is identify packets that are video and give them priority when downloading a video and performing other tasks at the same time. I may not be stating this correctly, but that is my understanding of the app is supposed to do. I did notice today that two YouTube links I used took longer to load and it kept spinning a long time before it began. Hard to gauge these two times, but it did happen. Again, Fink, thanks for the link.
