How to remove Smart Protector?
What is Smart Protector?
Smart Protector is a fraudulent anti-virus program, which imitates the legitimate Smart Protector Pro. Simulating to be a legal security application is one of deceiving methods used by Smart Protector and all this is done to gain a purchase. Trustful computer users are tricked into spending their money for this useless software which can neither scan a PC nor delete some infections.
Smart Protector is installed to the PC system like many other rogue anti-spywares, without any notice of the owner, and it starts to initiate a fake system scan immediately. Annoying popup ads and fake security alerts appear to warn the user about what a serious problem he has. However, the solution to get rid of viruses detected is presented right away and this is a “licensed” Smart Protector version, of course. Don’t spend your money for this scam in any way because this program is virus by itself. Use a reputable anti-spyware to scan your computer and remove Smart Protector as soon as it was detected
