Smart Anti-Malware Protection

Smart Anti-Malware Protection Description

Smart Anti-Malware Protection Screenshot 1Smart Anti-Malware Protection may look and act like an anti-malware scanner, but scans and alerts from Smart Anti-Malware Protection can all be safely disregarded as inaccurate or, at the bare minimum, misleading. As a copy of other rogue anti-malware applications from its family, Smart Anti-Malware Protection doesn’t have anything new to offer your PC except for a new name with which Smart Anti-Malware Protection tries to steal your money. Because Smart Anti-Malware Protection may also block your legitimate security programs, create junk files that Smart Anti-Malware Protection falsely-labels as PC threats or even hijack your web browser, malware researchers consider removing Smart Anti-Malware Protection ASAP and with good anti-malware software to be the truly ‘smart’ thing to do.

Why Letting Smart Anti-Malware Protection ‘Help’ Your PC Isn’t a Bright Move

Smart Anti-Malware Protection, although it has the external looks of a real anti-malware scanner, lacks all of the real features that a legitimate anti-malware program could offer your PC. Other than its name change, Smart Anti-Malware Protection can be considered identical to other types of rogue anti-malware scanners from its subgroup, and contact with any of Smart Anti-Malware Protection’s clones or associated websites should be considered just as harmful to your PC as contact with Smart Anti-Malware Protection itself would be.

  • The creation of fake .dll and .sys ‘virus’ files in your operating system’s folder.

    If we think of it, Malware are a more threats rather than viruses. Viruses tends to take over a certain application so a user weren’t enable to access certain system files that is more needed but Malware on the other hand tends to slow down one’s computer which can be more irritating and the outcome can be more crucial.
