Snap.do Removal

Snap.do is a potentially unwanted program which is attached to browsers with or without the knowledge of their users. The toolbar is created to provide users with accurate search results, but, in fact, the presence of the program poses a risk to the security of the computer on which it is installed.

What is Snap.do?

Snap.do is a browser hijacker and it can be downloaded from its web site search.snap.do. It can also come to computers together with other free programs. The add-on is automatically attached to the user’s browser. It can take full control over browsers like Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and others.

As soon as the program is installed, it starts managing all search results. All browser’s settings are modified and Snap.do is made a default search engine without your permission. Due to this unexpected change, your searches are taken to some unknown sites. Always when you try to visit some web site, you are redirected to search.snap.do or some unknown and insecure page.

    Let op! De webpagina van snap.do staat ook bij je opstartpagina’s in je browser. Vooral als je meerdere gebruikers hebt, moet je die opstartpagina uit je browser ook verwijderen

    Ciao giorgio.

    Si può provare ad installare un blocco pop-up per evitare che questi pop-up. Questo è uno dei migliori bloccanti per Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/adblock-plus-pop-up-addon/

    Saluti,
    Linda

    I have been trying to remove snap.do from my computer. I disabled it from my internet settings, but I’m having troubles completely getting rid of it. When I go to my control panel and go to uninstall programs, sap.do is on there and every time I click on it and press uninstall, of course my user account control comes up to confirm, but when I do, nothing happens and snap.do still remains on the program list

  8. Linda Jackson says:

    Hello Ash,

    I know that snap.do is really hard to be removed. Did you try a scan with Spyhunter? It should definitely remove Snap.do from Add/Remove programs.

    Regards,
    Linda
