WhiteSmoke Translator

Posted: February 9, 2011

WhiteSmoke Translator is a unique form of adware that eases the computer user into trusting WhiteSmoke Translator by pretending to be a grammar correction language translation tool. WhiteSmoke Translator may come packaged with other malware and can be installed without your permission or notification. Just the presence of WhiteSmoke Translator on your machine will cause you to be redirected towards dangerous malware, as well as be subjected to altered system settings and false advertising. Despite WhiteSmoke Translator harmless appearance, this malware has no reason to be kept around; you should delete WhiteSmoke Translator in the same fashion that you would deal with any parasite invading your system.

WhiteSmoke Translator Travels with Evil Companions

WhiteSmoke Translator has been reported to result from Trojan infections that install WhiteSmoke Translator without the computer users permission or even their awareness. Noticing WhiteSmoke Translator on your machine is, therefore, a good indicator that you may have other malware to deal with as well. It's especially likely to be accompanied by other similar kinds of adware, which will present misleading advertising that directs you to websites that will attempt to infect your computer further or steal private information. WhiteSmoke Translator's presence is easy to detect since it pretends to be useful software, but WhiteSmoke Translator carries various dangers with it:

  • An 'Improve Your PC' desktop icon created by WhiteSmoke Translator will direct you towards a fake rogue registry cleaner called Uniblue RegistryBooster 2011
  • Your registry will be significantly changed, most likely to allow WhiteSmoke Translator to run without any immediately obvious way of shutting WhiteSmoke Translator down.
  • WhiteSmoke Translator will try to encourage you to change your preferred search engine to its own, while using the Yahoo icon to mislead people who aren't paying close attention.
  • WhiteSmoke Translator will display (most likely unsafe) advertisements even on top of its own content, thus giving up the lie to its supposed purpose as software.

WhiteSmoke Translator Has an Easy Deletion for a Change

Though not the most harmful adware out there, WhiteSmoke Translator still has nothing good to offer your computer, and there's no justification for not removing WhiteSmoke Translator. The WhiteSmoke Translator software is unusual among malware for being able to be uninstalled the 'normal' way - through the Add/Remove Programs menu, which you can find in the Windows Control Panel. If you attempt this and get an error message, try shutting down the rundll32.exe process. This should allow you to remove WhiteSmoke Translator with no further troubles. After you've kicked WhiteSmoke Translator out, you should be ready to attend to the infections that most likely came with it. Only cleaning out the entire batch of infections will you be able to return your system to its desired state of undamaged functionality.
