SmartWallet removal instructions

What is SmartWallet?

The SmartWallet browser extension claims to save time and money by enabling coupons, comparison shopping, and by displaying special deals/discounts available on shopping websites. Although some users may find this functionality legitimate and useful, SmartWallet is classed as adware or a potentially unwanted program (PUP). The main reason for these negative associations is a deceptive software marketing method called 'bundling' - stealth installation of additional programs together with regular software. Using this method, SmartWallet installs on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox without users' permission, and then displays intrusive online advertisements such as coupons, sponsored messages, photographs, and other display advertisements. Some of these advertisements may redirect to dubious websites containing infectious content, thereby exposing your computer to risk of infection.

Paying for the full version of Smart Security, however, is equivalent to sending your money to cyber criminals.
