Avast failed to detect smartinf.ru hijacker
« on: September 26, 2015, 02:07:46 PM »
Recently I got infected with smartinf.ru browser hijacker. I made a full scan with my Avast Internet Security 2015 with all options on ( test all files and even detect PUP), but Avast failed to detect anything. As a result I had to manually track every file of the malware and clean the registry which took me about an hour to do so. This is not a complaint topic just a little feedback. Please guys i paid for my product and would like it to prevent or detect such hijackers. Thank you for your time and have a nice day :)
