Smilies

What is Smilies?

Smilies is installed with the software bundler called InstallIQ, an install manager that will make recommendations for additional advertising supported or other 3rd party software that may include toolbars, browser add-ons, and other types of potentially unwanted programs. Although you are not required to install any additional software, you need to manually uncheck the bundled offers.

Overview

It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with.
Smilies has been seen bundling various 3rd party software during the installation process. Make sure to check for and remove unused programs.
