How do I remove Shop Smart Ads?

Shop Smart Ads typically appear in the form of a rectangular banner in the right bottom section of your screen. Please note that it is strongly not recommended for you to click on such ads!

Likewise, you may be as well redirected to other malicious domains through these Ads by Shop Smart.
