Windows Smart Partner is a fake antivirus program that can be installed when you use online virus scanners or visit some malicious websites. When you have this program on your computer, then it will pretend to scan your computer every time when you start it. The scanning results are unsatisfactory because Windows Smart Partner reports about different threats for your computer, but don’t panic, this program lies. Just think logically, if this program was installed without your permission, then why you should trust it?
