What is snap.do and how did it get on my computer? Each time i go to firefox it show up.

I do not have any more information. I do not know how snap.do got on my computer nor do I know how to get rid of it. I cannot get firefox to run because I cannot get rid of snap.do.

1. Reset Firefox preferences to troubleshoot and fix problems Reset Firefox completely - you might loose useful information 2. Enter “about:config” in url bar. This will open settings page Type “Keyword.url” in the search box. Right click it & reset it. Type “browser.search.defaultengine” in the search box. Right click it & reset it. Type “browser.search.selectedengine” in the search box. Right click it & reset it. Search for ‘browser.newtab.url’. Right-click and reset. This will make sure that the search page won’t launch on each new tab. This is for firefox. 3 option is to scan with anti-malware programs like Adwcleaner orother programs . This would fix the infection in other browsers too.

Snapdo is a Web app. You must have downloaded it when you installed another program. It happens all the time – freeware often comes bundled with other programs. Don’t worry – You can easily uninstall it.

Follow the instructions found on their website: http://www.snapdoapp.com/faq/SnapDo/FAQ.aspx?lang=en
