Where does Smoothview come from?

This adware application does not offer us anything new. It does not even have an official website, which allows us to infer that Smoothview is a rather old adware program that sometimes gets included in the InstallRex, Amonetize, and Vittalia installers. The installers are usually available at third-party websites that distribute software. Our research shows that users often initiate freeware downloads when they click fake download buttons on piracy websites. It goes without saying that downloaded pirated software and media are against the law, but by doing so you might also end up getting infected with Smoothview adware and other dangerous programs. In the worst case, you might accidentally download a Trojan or a rogue antispyware program that would totally cripple your system.

What does Smoothview do?

The program comes from the Multiplug family, so it does everything its predecessors (SharkManCoupon, LuckyCoupon, RealDeal, etc.) were programmed to do. The application functions like a browser add-on that is supposed to collect information on what websites you visit in order to create your online profile. Later on, Smoothview starts displaying multiple commercial ads that contain links to associated websites.

It might seem that Smoothview ads are there to help you purchase something for a lower price, but the application does not check whether the links embedded in the ads are secure. That is to say, Smoothview is only concerned with increasing the traffic count on the websites you get redirected to because this is how the people behind this application make money.

Some users just ignore the pop-ups that constantly appear on their screen and keep on operating their computer without any second thought. However, if you do not remove Smoothview from your system, it is very likely that eventually you will get redirected to malware-related websites, and your computer will be infected with malicious programs.

As mentioned above, once you delete Smoothview from your system, do not forget to scan your system with a reliable antimalware scanner because this application always comes bundled with other software, and you must remove all the potential threats at once.
