We were suckered into letting Smart Protector into our computer. I think I've deleted all of the program, but our computer is stalling after a couple of clicks. We get the Windows Security Center popping up saying our Virus protection is not found, when I click on the recommendation button it takes me to the Smart Protection website. We have the Verizon virus protection running (I think). What did I miss??????

While waiting for your help, I started trying to see if I could fix my problem. The SmartProtector keeps reappearing in the registry. I've deleted it, but when I restart the computer it's back again. I uninstalled my verizon virus protector, it seemed with that trying to run and the SmartProtector it brought my computer to a standstill. Installed Avast, it ran it's scan but said it didn't find anything. I'm still getting the prompt saying the window security center doesn't recognize a virus protector, and is suggesting SmartProtector. Please help.

My problem seems resolved. It either because of two things. Either it is a result of me trying to delete everything I could find about SmartProtector with the aid of spyware finders...OR...could the SmartProtector have a time limit??? It was on our computer for about a week and we never agreed to pay for their services. Could theprogram finally give up and let us delete the program??? Good luck to anyone who is so misfortunate to be dealing with this same problem.
