SmartWeb is an adware program that may unknowingly install on your computer through the loading of random freeware programs or bundled software apps. When this takes place, the SmartWeb program and all of its related components are apt to displaying random advertisements or pop-ups that try to get you to click on them. Use of the SmartWeb ads may redirect your web browser to unwanted sites that could contain questionable content. The SmartWeb ads may also slightly reduce the performance of your web browser application thus resulting in a cumbersome experience when you try to surf the internet. Removal of the SmartWeb adware and its related components or add-on extensions is a must to prevent the likelihood of you landing on questionable sites or ones that eventually lead to malware being installed on your computer.

Hey, so I tried to download a sims 4 game for free on the web, shortly after; I got rid of all the weird files and the unneeded downloads because I realized that it is illegal to take someone's game that costs money and sell it for free. Yet- a little search the web bar came up when I already had one. So, thanks for teaching me how to get rid of it! 🙂
