    Is Intel SMBus associated with Desktop Utilities?

    baroque-quest

      I used to have Desktop Utilities installed on my PCs, but I got tired of the icon being screwed up after certain system changes -- the most recent was simply copying a song onto the system -- not to mention the extra time it requires on start-up.  So I uninstalled it.  Then I looked at the list of installed Intel programs and saw Intel SMBus.  Is this associated with Desktop Utilities, in other words, can I uninstall it with no impact?  Or is it essential for other Intel functionality?

       

      The systems are DH67CL, i5-2500K, running VIRTU with ASUS video card, Windows 7 Pro with all updates.
