I need help with this one. It shows in the toolbars listing, but I can't find it anywhere in the add and remove programs. How do I get rid of it ?

Follow these steps:

1- Click on Start --> Control Panel --> Uninstall a program.

2. Look for snap.do and uninstall it.

 

NOTE: Sometimes the name snap.do won't be used, so search for any programs by Resoft Ltd and uninstall them.

 

What browser are you using?


I don't always use Internet Explorer, but when I do, it's to download a different browser.

I have looked through my uninstall list and there is nothing there under this name either. I  am using the Google browser. I have looked it up on the internet, but nothing there was any help either. maybe it has not been installed, but it still shows up in the toolbar listing. Is this possible ?

Ok, so Google Chrome. Follow these instructions:

 

1. Click the Chrome Menu button (top right, underneath the close button), select Tools, and click on Extensions. In the Extensions tab, remove the snap.do extension.

2. Set your default search engine back to www.google.com

3. Search for snap.do in the search engines list and remove it (click the x that appears at the end of the line)

4. Click the Chrome Menu button --> Settings --> Click on "Open the New Tab page"


I don't always use Internet Explorer, but when I do, it's to download a different browser.

Thanks everyone for the help. I don't know what happened, as I went to check things out before I started doing some of these steps and for some reason or other the toolbar was gone. Also my computer was running at a faster speed than it has for the last week. It must have been something in the settings, that corrected itself.
