What is Smilebox?

SmileBox, run by Perion Networks (now Conduit) is a photo sharing and social expression application intended for creating digital collages, invitations, slideshows, e-cards and scrapbooks for special occasions such as weddings and birthdays. SmileBox's interface is designed to create digital projects, such as postcards, invitations, e-cards, collages, slideshows, and scrapbooks. Users then combine and manipulate photos and videos uploaded to their computer. Users then can share their creations by email, print, social networks, and burned DVDs.

SmileBox uses the Conduit download and install manager that will bundle various potentially unwanted software programs including Search Protect and Better-Search, both ad-supported utilities that are designed to modify the web browser's search provider.
