Hello!!! My Asus Smart Doctor File is called "SmartDoctor.exe" (1'184 ko) and is located in my "C:\Program Files (x86)\ASUS\SmartDoctor\" Directory (on Vista 64 bits) and there is a small icon representing the Smart Doctor Window. I also have a ASDR.exe File (60 ko), but located in my C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ directory!!! That's why I'm not 100% sure if this file has really something to do with Smart Doctor. But I found the following link: https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_ASDR_Project
