Smart Internet Protection 2011 Description
Smart Internet Protection 2011 is an updated version of the rogue program Personal Internet Security 2011. As a rogue scanner, Smart Internet Protection 2011 does its best to fake the superficial elements of useful anti-malware software, but this is just a false front.

Substantial damage may occur to your computer if you allow Smart Internet Protection 2011 to remain unhindered, which makes Smart Internet Protection 2011 an important target for speedy deletion.
Surveying the Foul Nature of Smart Internet Protection 20
In recent times, malware creators have shifted to the tactic of putting a new name and face on old malicious code, and Smart Internet Protection 2011 is just one example of that in action. Rogue software like Smart Internet Protection 2011 will usually infect computers in an undercover fashion. This may be either by spreading through Trojans or by tricking the user into installing the supposedly helpful program. Smart Internet Protection 2011, like every rogue scanner, thrives on presenting constant warnings of system damage that are false statements to secure the contents of your wallet.
Based on infection records and similarities to other rogue products, Smart Internet Protection 2011 likely comes from Russia. Avoiding contact with Russian-based file sources may help you keep your system uninfected, but as always, the best protection is a reliable and well-known security program that constantly patrols your system for potential threats.
You’ll know very quickly if you have a Smart Internet Protection 2011 infection on your machine, since Smart Internet Protection 2011 will create an icon for itself, display its presence proudly in other ways, and generally be a nuisance.
Be especially careful not to travel to Smart Internet Protection 2011′s fraudulent website by accident when dealing with this behavior, since many error messages Smart Internet Protection 2011 causes may contain malicious links. Smart Internet Protection 2011′s prolonged presence has also been reported to cause serious instability in infected systems. Smart Internet Protection 2011 may even make running important programs like Task Manager impossible when not booted into Safe Mode.
Smart Internet Protection 2011 is Trickier to Remove than Most, But Not Impossible
Smart Internet Protection 2011 may disable many of the programs you would ordinarily use to remove rogue scanners like it. Some actual security software products have even been reported to be unable to detect Smart Internet Protection 2011 at all. Downloading updates for your security software as soon as it’s available may drastically reduce the chances of such a calamitous event, although there are still no guarantees that removing Smart Internet Protection 2011 will be easy.
Manual removal may be necessary in some cases, but one should generally attempt an anti-malware scanner-based removal of Smart Internet Protection 2011 first. You’re more likely to suffer from an incomplete deletion if you attempt to remove Smart Internet Protection one file at a time yourself. This can allow Smart Internet Protection 2011 or other malware to remain on your computer and get back to causing trouble.
Besides general anti-malware software, there are also more specific programs that target Smart Internet Protection 2011 and similar rogue scanners more particularly, and these may be a good choice if other efforts have failed. You should also be aware that some users have reported a disabled Internet connection immediately after deleting Smart Internet Protection 2011. These settings can usually be returned to normal if one is simply willing to go to the Internet Settings interface in the Control Panel.
