What makes you think you need to close Smss.exe?
Smss.exe - You cannot end this process from Task Manager.
* This is the session manager subsystem*, which is responsible for starting
the user session. This process is initiated by the system thread and is
responsible for various activities, including launching the Winlogon and
Win32 (Csrss.exe) processes and setting system variables. After it has
launched these processes, it waits for either Winlogon or Csrss to end. If
this happens "normally," the system shuts down; if it happens unexpectedly,
Smss.exe causes the system to stop responding (hang).
Note: smss.exe could also be a process which is registered as a trojan. Viruses with same name, smss.exe:W32.Dalbug.Worm,Adware.DreamAd,W32.Resdoc,Adware.Advision,Backdoor.IRC.Flood.F,Backdoor.IRC.Aladinz.O .

in areas Windows protects while using them. Safe mode will prevent those
applications access and therefore unprotect the viruses or other malware
allowing for easier removal.
