When I boot this computer it says WDDM is  not running. Task Manager says that WD SmartWare is running. When I click on WD SmartWare on the task bar, System (my computer) information shows, but nothing else. When I try to click on Update Software, Contact us, or anything else, MS Word opens with some html code. I can't do anything else.

My HP laptop gave me the message that my WDDM service is not running.  Is it important?  What does it do?  How do I fix it?
