ScreenshotSmart Antivirus 2009, also known as SmartAntivirus 2009, is a rogue anti-spyware program and clone of XP Antivirus and WinAntivirusPro. Smart Antivirus 2009 may install in your computer system by a Trojan Zlob found on a fake video codec installation or you may have downloaded it from a rogue website (thinking it would get rid of your spyware infections). Once Zlob is installed, it may generate fake popups and imaginary notifications "informing" you about supposed spyware infections. These rogue messages will try to trick you into buying Smart Antivirus 2009's "licensed" program to remove the imaginary threats.

If you click on any of the links provided you may be redirected to rogue websites that promotes Smart Antivirus 2009 as a legitimate software. Moreover, Smart Antivirus 2009 may use its fake computer scanner, emulate a system scan and display a list of spyware supposedly found in your computer system.
