I download the app and run it. It ask me to agree on the licence and the temperature. I okayed it and find that it only gives me the temperature of my hard disk. That's all. I did not actually use it.
Seeing that it is not useful, i google smart hdd on how to uninstall it. That is when i come across Remove Smart HDD (Uninstall guide) in Bleeping Computer.com website
Is my computer infected? I have not rebooted/shutdowned my computer yet. How can I uninstall SMART HDD, the safe way?
Smart HDD[/size] is a fake hard drive optimization and analysis program that displays false information so that it can scare you into thinking that there is something wrong with your computer's hard disks. This program is part of the [/size]Rogue.FakeHDD family of scareware programs. Smart HDD is installed via Trojans that display fake error messages on the infected computer. These messages will state that there is something wrong with your computer's hard drive in order to scare you into purchasing the program....[/size]If you are infected with Smart HDD it is important that you do not delete any files from your Temp folder or use any temp file cleaners.[/size] This is because when the infection is installed it will delete shortcuts found in various locations and store backups of them in the [/size]%Temp%\smtmp[/size] folder. It does this so that you when try to launch a program from your start menu, none of your shortcuts will appear and thus making you think that your computer has a serious problem. [/size]
By the way I have already deleted smart hdd.exe.
