What is DSAgnt.exe?
This process is the Dell Support Agent, which is installed as a part of the Dell Support tools. It comes preinstalled on all Dell computers sold over the past several years.

This process is not essential to the operation of the system and is safe to terminate or uninstall. Terminating the process will merely prevent you from using the Dell Support Agent software.

Dangers of DSAgnt
As this is a process that runs on any system with a Symantec Norton product installed, it is possible for virus writers and spyware vendors to disguise their malware as the genuine one.

Some malicious files may have the same name as this but be stored somewhere other than in %ProgramFiles%\Dell Support. Other malware may use a name that appears similar to that of the legitimate one but with slight differences in spelling or with appended digits. While there are currently no known viruses, Trojans, or adware applications that disguise themselves as this process, you should look out for the presence of this file in an incorrect location or with a slightly different name.

There will typically be only one instance of this process running at a given time on a system. The presence of multiple instances may be an indicator of a malware infection. If you do not have the Dell Support Agent installed or do not have a Dell computer, the presence of this process is a strong indicator of a malware infection.

Common problems
  • There are no common problems that are known to be associated with this process. Despite this, DSAgnt.exe is a largely unnecessary process for most users and should be disabled and/or uninstalled in order to free up the resources that it uses. If you encounter any problems with the software, it is strongly recommended that you remove it.
