    I have completed both steps 1 and 2 but i am struggling with step 3. When i go into control panel and click uninstall on either or Engine, I am finding it to be unresponsive. Yet if i click uninstall on any other program, it works without fail. Is there anything i can do?

    i found this on another website and its something that is left out of this guide and was driving me crazy

    in firefox, snapdo will open its own search page in a new tab and none of the malware software will fix this, however. go to the “about:config” page (without the quotes) firefox will say something about voiding your warranty but click the button to continue.
    once on the page find the line that is labeled “browser.newtab.url” and right click on it, select modify, this will give you a dialogue box which will allow you to set whatever web page you want as your new tab page. if you want the firefox thumbnail page of recently used sites then set this to “about:newtab” (without the quotes)

    hope thats usesfull 🙂

    I run windows 8 on my laptop, chrome is infected with Snap-Do. I cannot find any reference to snap-do in programs or reg-edit. I have purchased Malware bytes and have performed a thorough search of the computer and H-Drives-backups to no avail. I have uninstalled chrome and reloaded — still the same. One thing I did notice, I fired up the computer one time without turning the wireless net on and a name came up in the web search box at the top of the screen ‘feed snap-do . com’ came up when I tried to access chrome?? would the malware only be coming in when I try and fire up Chrome?
    explorer appears to be unaffected by snap-do.
    hope you can help

        I am not sure of the issue you are referencing to.

        Though it is boldy simple: You must uninstall software that is causing unwanted symptoms.

        Look through your Control Panel for unwanted software and uninstall any if found. If you do not find any software to remove (which I doubt – It’s there) I recommend to search in C: > Program Files for a folder that represents software you are not familiar with. If you find unfamiliar software, go into the folder and click the uninstall.exe file to remove the software.

        Freeware and shareware, or free software you downloaded online might be the culprit.

        You may also want to check your browser shortcuts by right clicking the browser’s icon and making sure they are not set to, etc.

        Another very simply solution is to use the instructions in this article for the free or full version of CCleaner by Piriform.

      first see if you have a program called Protector it’s by the publisher Conduit. I have this same problem. I’ve read online it’s getting harder and harder to track its source and this surely is true! I’ve tried everything. I just uninstalled the program so hopefully it will work

    Sometimes it is also installed as QUICK SHARE..
    (1) Uninstall program
    (2) Scan registry for issues with CC CLEANER

    that’s it..
