Once this adware program gains access to your operating system, it will almost instantly flood your web browser with unwanted third-party commercial ads and annoying pop-ups. This activity is possible because SmartPurple starts a background system service known as smartpurple.exe. This malicious service triggers numerous connections with various adware servers which provide all of the unwanted third-party web content. Such activity will make browsing the web a frustrating and annoying experience, to say the least, because every single time you browse the web you will need to close those annoying third-party ads and annoying pop-ups just to make the online experience bearable. In fact, browsing the web the way you are used to will not be possible as long as this adware program is active on your operating system. It has to be noted that just killing the smartpurple.exe service will not stop this intrusive activity permanently. Regain the standard functionality of your web browser by conducting a complete removal of SmartPurple.

Unfortunately, annoyance and frustration are not the only things that SmartPurple causes. During the research, we have discovered that in some cases this invasive adware application could present you with ads that are implemented with redirect links. Such a situation is extremely dangerous since just by clicking on a simple ad powered by SmartPurple you could be taken to suspicious or even potentially malicious websites. For example, you could be taken to a fake online shop, which was crafted for one purpose only – to steal your credit card data. In other instances, you could land on a website with an active arbitrary code execution exploit, meaning that just entering such a site is more than enough to get your PC infected with some unknown malware. Do not take chances with SmartPurple because the outcomes could be devastating. Use the removal guide provided below to delete this adware once and for all.

It is very important to pay your utmost attention while conducting the manual removal, because a single mistake could mean that SmartPurple has not been removed entirely.
