SMS Client Service
Unknown at this time.
When the SMS Client service starts on a domain controller, the Client service modifies the SMSCliToknAcct & user account group membership, user rights, and account comment. The Client service then waits for the synchronization of the comment to verify that the account and user rights are properly set for this account. This account is used to obtain a token to start the SMS Client processes, such as the Software Inventory and Software Distribution agents (MS Systems Management Server)

It is assumed that users are familiar with the operating system they are using and comfortable
with making the suggested changes. BleepingComputer.com will not be held responsible if
changes you make cause a system failure.
This is NOT a list of tasks/processes taken from Task Manager or
the Close Program window (CTRL+ALT+DEL) but a list of startup applications,
although you will find some of them listed via this method. Pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL identifies programs
that are currently running - not necessarily at startup.
Therefore, before ending a task/process via CTRL+ALT+DEL just because it has an "X" recommendation,
please check whether it's in MSCONFIG or the registry first.
An example would be "svchost.exe" - which doesn't appear in either under normal conditions but does via CTRL+ALT+DEL.
If in doubt, don't do anything.
