How to defend your system from Smarter HD

You can simply guard the device against Smarter HD, but it needs some time. We're aware of a few hints suitable for everyone, that can assist in making your machine protected and fast. The only problem is that you'll need to refrain from many of your browsing practices, such as clicking through everything you see, installing dubious software, having no up-to-date antivirus, using cracked tools, and so forth. The essential tip is to supervise the installation process of each utility. Let’s see how it goes:

  • When the suggestion is showed, read a register of suggested utilities, and mark only the helpful utilities. Smarter HD uses the words “recommended installation” to trick you into installing more adware. Actually, the pre-selected installation algorithm leads you to installing lots of undesired utilities.
  • During the installation of any tool, the program invites you to pick additional parts, according to your aims. That’s if you're installing a useful program. If we're talking about an unpaid utility, you’ll get a proposition to download a few entirely different utilities, and in most cases they’re not good at all.
  • Such a trap is frankly simple to escape – use an advanced manner, and choose only the helpful utilities. If you're unable to uncheck the fields with useless tools – you need to redefine your plans about downloading anything at all.

How Smarter HD Infects The Computer

Smarter HD is at the same time fully annoying, time-consuming, dangerous and pointless. What's the ground for installing such a virus? There's only one correct variant – since he's sure that he's downloading a helpful utility. Smarter HD doesn’t have a sole beneficial function, but it has a skillful crew of swindlers, versed in psychological deception, and they are well aware of how to make a victim do their work for them. Smarter HD has a sole path inside a user’s machine, and it lies in making him think that he downloads a helpful tool. Let's see how they do it:

    Fraudsters make their victim think that they want to install Smarter HD. They secure it by putting adware in an installer with a few other utilities, one of whose is relatively beneficial. Usually, it's a hacked copy of an official program. You can simply avoid it by trying to download only the trusted tools.
  • Since adware is on the machine – nothing can stop it from turning your browsing into a living hell. Its first move is to display ads on all pages, and the majority of them gets clicked because you struggle to close them.
  • When the bundle already in the OS, there are two probable scenarios. The victim either doesn't see a thing and ignores everything to get an undesired tool or understands an unpleasant fact that he can only get the entire package of pointless software. Usually, a victim ends up with Smarter HD installed. The easiest way of missing this is to familiarize yourself with everything that’s contained in the menus appearing while you're installing any unofficial program.

The aforementioned penetration manner is also known as bundling, and it is highly appreciated by Web criminals all over the world. They persuade you to allowing an advertising utility in with your own hands, which makes them blameless. This way absolves Web criminals from any liabilities towards a victim, as he downloaded a dangerous tool of his own free will, and accepted its terms and conditions.

What is Smarter HD

There are a lot of names we’d like to use for Smarter HD, and a portion of them comes in the lines of waste of time, fraud, rubbish, malicious software, and many others. These epithets are truthful, yet they cannot carry Smarter HD’s purpose. In fact, Smarter HD was designed to display advertisement to you and there is no other goal else. Scammers display to you the links until you start clicking them, and this is their wicked scheme. They literally force you to work for them, while you won't get paid for that. Lots of users think that undesired tools are an inevitable evil, but it’s wrong! It’s not okay to see a dozen banners on each website, and it’s definitely wrong to spend days struggling to remove all the ads, instead of easily browsing the Net. If you agree with that – keep reading, and we’ll explain to you how to make your PC clean again.
