Do you know what SmartShopper is?
SmartShopper is an old adware application from 2007 that may sometimes get installed on user computers. Its main website was located at smartshopper.com, but it has been dead as of January 2013. So even if it had been possible to download SmartShopper directly, it is not the case right now. If you happen to have this application on your computer, you are strongly recommended to remove SmartShopper. Adware programs are not useful. They may not be direct computer security threats, but they are related to specific computer security issues you should not ignore.
Allen says that SmartShopper does not work anymore. It would not be surprising considering that it is an extremely old application. So SmartShopper may not display annoying commercial ads anymore even if it gets installed on the PC, but it does not mean that you should allow this program to remain in your system. For what it’s worth, SmartShopper can be a good indicator that you have more than just one adware application on board. Since it is impossible to download this program directly, it is clear that it always comes bundled with other freeware and adware.SmartShopper screenshot
