Our research team agrees that it is most important to delete SmartPackageTracker to protect yourself. If you continue using this potentially unwanted program, it will track your virtual behavior and collect data. This data can be shared with third-party advertisers. Since the parties who have access to information about you are not disclosed, you need to consider the possibility that they are unreliable. Another thing you need to think about is the search service that SmartPackageTracker introduces you to. Did you notice that you were redirected to Yahoo Search? If this is your default search provider already, you might not notice the change, but the change is there because the PUP can influence the results you see. Needless to say, if you do not want to be redirected to third-party pages without your permission, and you do not want to be exposed to modified results, you need to delete whatever is causing that.

Before you start removing SmartPackageTracker, we advise inspecting your entire system, which you can do using a malware scanner. It is known that the PUP pushes the installation of Search Secure add-on, but if the PUP was introduced to you via a software bundle, you also need to beware of hidden threats that might have been downloaded without your permission. The instructions should help you if you need to delete unwanted extensions alone, but if malware exists, you should not hesitate to install anti-malware software. Keep it installed if you want to have your system and browsers protected!
