I just installed SuperAntiSpyware trial version on my computer and the scan of my system is coming up with several system files that are rated by other users as good or bad.  I don't remember installing smplayer.exe but I may have since I haven't been able to use this computer in almost a year.  I have not opened the program since I have no idea what its for.  Anyway, it is rated as bad by most users but since its a system file I get a warning about deleting a system file. 

 

So, is it safe for me to delete it from there or is there a process I should use?  The reason I ask is because I've had other programs I have uninstalled but had problems that turned out to be because I should have used the uninstaller from the program itself.

 

Also, since I'm on the topic, this scan is reporting several files I didn't add on purpose and some are recent.  I'm not sure how some of these got installed because I try to be careful when installing any program so I'm also curious about how this is happening.  Is there a tool I can use to find out what, if any, of these files are safe to remove or dangerous?

 

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 on a Lenovo B575 laptop.

 

Thanks

Hello , it appears someone installed it.

SMPlayer is a free media player for Windows and Linux with built-in codecs that can play virtually all video and audio formats. It doesn't need any external codecs. Just install SMPlayer and you'll be able to play all formats without the hassle to find and install codec packs.
See.. http://www.shouldiremoveit.com/SMPlayer-13695-program.aspx

 Safe, but to remove,, look in Control Panel,uninstall for it.

Click on each one and uncheck any items you want to keep (except you cannot uncheck Chrome and Firefox preferences lines).
