  • SmartShoper_Easy_Fix says:

    I tried all the usual ways to get rid of SmartShopper – add/remove/uninstall programs, editing the registry etc. All was to no avail – because my computer just couldn’t find any files relating to SmartShopper. I only had the problem when using Google Chrome (and i have no idea where i picked up SmartShopper from!!). So I even tried uninstalling and re-installing Chrome – but this didn’t work either. SmartShopper was back!

    However if you go into Chrome Advanced Settings; there’s an option right at the bottom <reset browser settings>. Hitting that got rid of SmartShopper for me! :)

    When you select this option the following Chrome dialogue box comes up: "Your browser settings will be restored to their original defaults. This will reset your homepage, new tab page and search engine, disable your extensions and unpin all tabs. It will also clear other temporary and cached data, such as cookies, content and site data."

    So basically you’ll need to re-set any homepages, re-enable extensions and possibly themes etc. You’ll also have to re-enter passwords the first time you log in to sites that Chrome previously remembered for you. You’ll still have all your bookmarks etc. So it’s really not too much hassle!

    SmartShopper is such an annoying nightmare!! But this fix worked for me – hopefully it will work for others too. Of course for all i know there may still be some aspects of the SmartShopper malware still lurking on my machine – but this got rid of the popups and audio clips – and I’ll soon to a complete re-format (long overdue anyway) just to be sure.

    I hope this helps others – because this malware really is bloody annoying!!!
