SMC is part of Sygate Personal Firewall. 'SMC not responding' is apparently caused by a 'bug' (programming error) which affects Windows 98 & Me, although the firewall itself continues to work properly even though Windows says 'not reponding'. You need not worry that SPF may not be protecting you -- it is. Read this:

I had the same deal on my 98se, also found it caused my computer to lag. Only ran Sygate for about a week, but I liked the firewall itself, but with that bug , it just wasn't worth it to me.
