While Think Smart is running, it will block legitimate programs on your computer, including task manager and other Windows utilities. Here's a quick fix. Once you see the ThinkSmart screen go ahead and press CTRL + ALT + DEL. Select the Processes tab. Highlight hotfix.exe and click End Process button. Now click File -> New Task. Type in explorer and press Enter. It will back the Start button and task bar. Finally, go ahead and delete ThinkSmart files and registry keys manually or download an automatic removal tool given below and run a full system scan. Last, but not least, if you have already purchased this rogue program then you should contact your credit card company and dispute the charges. Related files: hotfix.exe
