ThinkSmart is a fake anti-spyware program and it should be avoided at all costs. It is a clone of ThinkPoint malware.
Think Smart puts all the efforts into looking like a real malware remover. It displays computer scan, system check reports, infection warnings and similar alerts. All of those pop-ups are made up as ThinkSmart is not able to actually detect a thing. Do not trust ThinkSmart and do not pay for a fake program removing imaginary threats.
ThinkSmart loads large amounts of pop-ups but it may also interrupt normal use of a computer in other ways. It may disable real security applications along with systems tools such as the Registry Editor and the Task Manager.
