- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
You may wonder what an application with the name of SmartPurple can actually do; let us help you figure it out: nothing useful. As a matter of fact, our researchers have found that this program has no real function at all apart from displaying different types of disruptive advertisements. Therefore, it has been categorized as adware. The annoying pop-up ads can easily turn your browsing experience into a hunt for Close buttons, a total waste of your precious time. What is worse is that you cannot stop an ad-supported program from operation if you simply close all the windows; you can be sure there will be more ads coming. So, if you want to get your normal browsing routine back and you do not want to risk landing on possibly malicious websites, you had better learn how you can remove SmartPurple from your system.
SmartPurple does not have a website, which makes it difficult to download it directly. This does not leave too many choices for this adware to spread on the web. The most frequently used means of distribution for such applications is so-called bundling. It is quite easy to sneak a number of unwanted and even malicious programs onto an inexperienced user’s system if those programs come in a package. Installers that might contain malware infections are usually promoted on torrent sites or suspicious websites that host free software. You can easily be tricked into clicking on a fake download button or link if you are not familiar with the site. In order to avoid getting infected with malware, we suggest staying away from unfamiliar or questionable websites. However, if you have already been infected with SmartPurple, it is likely that you have other threats on your system as well. You cannot waste time and wait until you find yourself in the middle of more severe security problems. Therefore, we recommend that you remove all the related infections, too, after you take care of SmartPurple.
SmartPurple is not a one-of-a-kind program; actually, it is identical to DoReMe and FlashBeat, which we have already covered on our website. This adware does not install browser extensions; it uses a service called smartpurple.exe, which is a process that runs in the background. Once this adware is installed, it collects information about you so that targeted third-party advertisements can be returned to you. The trap in those is that it is much easier to click on an ad that feels like it reads your mind and relates to you. That is why some schemers specialize in making use of these adware applications and their ads. So, if you do not want to end up losing money or precious personal data, you can prevent these things from happening by deleting SmartPurple.
We hope that by now you see that there is no reason to keep this adware on your computer. So you will be happy to learn that it is very simple to make it go away. You can uninstall SmartPurple via Control Panel, and, if you do not know how, please use our instructions below as reference. But remember that this adware may not be the only infection on your computer, and the others may not even be this conspicuous. We would not advise you to try to remove them manually. There is a much easier way to address this issue, and that is by the use of an automated antimalware application.
