Smart Address Bar is an application which transforms the address bar into a search box. The application was created by Think Tank Labs LLC which creates various browser extension applications. According to the developers, this application does not serve advertisement and is not aimed and damaging computer systems. If any adverts are served, they will be easily distinguishable as they contain the Smart Address Bar brand.
Smart Address Bar, a browser add-on, is compatible with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. It can be downloaded from smartaddressbar.com or other sources, including addons.mozilla.org, cnet.com and other websites. In case it is downloaded not from its official website, you may be offered to install an additional application.
This tool is supposed to help you browse much quicker because when you type a word in the address/search bar, you are provided with relevant keywords. It displays up to 7 history suggestions which you have to click so that you do not need to enter the whole string of words. However, in addition to the advantageous characteristics, it is important to note that Smart Address Bar can also provide some irrelevant offers. By clicking on one of the suggestions, a page containing more detailed results will be opened. In this case, the address box will show that you are dealing with search.smartaddressbar.com. The offers that lead you to search.smartaddressbar.com can be easily recognized as they contain the icon of Smart Address bar.
We recommend you remove this application in order not to be provided with irrelevant hits which, for example, may be insecure websites. As for the removal, you should bear in mind that it depends on how you acquired the application. If you have downloaded it from the official website, you will find it in Control Panel. If you downloaded it from, for example, cnet.com, it will not be present there as the browser will display a message asking whether you agree to have the plug-in installed.
After you complete the removal, install a reliable spyware removal tool or scan the PC with our free scanner.
