Smart Security Removal GuideSmart Security Removal Guide

Smart Security Removal Guide
Smart Security is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Security Tool. It pretends to be a legitimate security program, but in reality it's just another scam. The rogue program is promoted and installed through the use of Trojans that usually come from fake online scanners or malicious PDF files, bogus video sites or any other misleading websites. Once installed, Smart Security will run a system scan and display numerous serious infections on your computer. But don't worry about that, because the scan results are absolutely false. It just tries to make scare you into thinking that your computer is infected when it's not. Then it will prompt you to buy the full version of the program to remove the infections which don't even exist. Don't do that. Otherwise you will simply lose your money and probably won't get them back.
