    Do this go to SETTINGS - APPLICATIONS-APPLICATIONS MANAGER and go to the ALL tab....look on the list for SMART MANAGER or it might say smart manager provider..go in to that and clear data and clear cache.

    When you open Smart Manager you will see the device security now say DEACTIVATED.

    I am not sure if KNox is also disabled but I am sure the virus is..just dont select clean all on smart manager.

    If you want to disabled bloatware on the Samsung Galaxy S6 then buy from the playstore Package Disabler (Samsung) it works you can disble anything...you can even disable the complete Smart Manager app but it disables the battery section I did not want that so this is why I wanted to disable virus. I also hate Cheetah mobile whydid Samsung integarte that crap with Smart Manager? and I thought most android experts say dont end task so why is Samsung including that?

    Yes that worked on my Samsung Galaxy S6, it now says deactivated for device security thanks.

    I wish I could get rid of the entire smart manager because Samsung is using that rubbish Cheetah Mobile to power the cache cleaner and task killer. Cheetah Mobile is the bigest data miners in the play store with the crap software. Yes they have millions of downlaods cause people stupid. Dont use clean master and yes neevr click clean all on smart manager. I just use the battery part.
