If you're an avid online shopper, you may have installed the SmartShopper Community Toolbar to help you save a few bucks. This browser add-on automatically detects products on shopping websites, and then shows you a list of the lowest prices available online. The SmartShopper toolbar isn't a virus, but it may track your browsing habits and annoy you with a steady stream of targeted advertisements. If you're done with this add-on, remove it from your browser and computer.
