- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
SmartWeb publishers promise to find you the best online shopping deals if you use their application. But before falling prey to these misleading marketing strategies and installing their program onto the PC you should know that SmartWeb is just one more invasive adware application. Unfortunately, the application that promises to enhance your web browsing is only capable of disrupting it. No beneficial feature of SmartWeb exists and that is not all about this intrusive program. Your chances of getting your PC infected with some other internet-based infection are significantly higher as long as SmartWeb is running on your PC. Removal of SmartWeb is a must if you wish to avoid any further problems associated with virtual security. A comprehensive removal guide is provided below and can be used by every user to delete SmartWeb.
Unlike the majority of adware programs, SmartWeb does not rely on browser extensions to display adverts and pop-ups. SmartWeb uses a different technique altogether. Once it enters your operating system it creates two new processes called SmartWebHelper.exe and SmartWebApp.exe. Thus, it is harder to spot the invasive application on your system. These system processes are used in a same manner as extensions are used by other adware applications. The processes will connect to some suspicious adware servers and then your browser will be flooded with ads and pop-ups whether you like it or not. The annoyance and frustration caused by SmartWeb will continue unless the intrusive application is deleted completely from your system.
In addition to all that, you should know that the risk of getting your system infected with other internet-based infections is extremely high, as you could land on a corrupted website just by clicking on any advert provided by SmartWeb. That is so because adverts could be implemented with redirect links. Avoid clicking on any of them because it is well known that malware distributors often implement an arbitrary code execution exploit on those corrupted websites. This exploit allows them to infect your PC silently; thus, you will not even realize that your operating system was infected. The removal of SmartWeb is not only advised, it is actually essential if you want to keep a clean and secure system. Delete SmartWeb without hesitation at the very same moment that it is found on your PC.
Usually the annoying activities are stopped by uninstalling SmartWeb via Control Panel. But to be on the safe side we recommend analyzing your system for any potential leftovers. Traces of the infection could be used to restore it or even worse – other infection could be using just a file or a few as a gateway into your operating system. In order to avoid any future infections we strongly advise you to invest in a professional antimalware tool that provides real-time security.
