"NO. JUST NO."

March 06, 2014  |  By rmrealm

 |  Version: Snap.do Browser Widgets 1.6.0.322

Pros

None. None at all.

Cons

It can easily get on your computer. A lot of software installers will put this on your computer (even if you uncheck the snap.do option, it will install without permission) <- Shouldn't that be a crime? It's also a pain to get rid of it. For days I couldn't find it in Control Panel, and when I did, I still had to change all of my home-pages, uninstall SmartBar, etc. Stay away from this infecting piece of software.

"Nasty Malware to target the innocent/non tech savvy."

November 03, 2013  |  By thejohnscott

 |  Version: Snap.do Browser Widgets 1.6.0.322

Pros

Gets me in touch with my family. (when they call me for help to remove it)

Cons

Malware... browser jacking spyware, frightware.

Summary

My Mum called me up to get this off her machine, which she mistakenly installed from spam claiming to be my sister. (yes they do this too). It slowed her machine almost to a stop and kept flashing pop-ups claiming the system was being scanned and had many errors that need fixing, for a price. ADWCleaner and the JRT in that order will successfully remove this malware from your system (tip), it will not uninstall conventionally.

"This is a Malware I can not get it off"

September 07, 2013  |  By destinyway13

 |  Version: Snap.do Browser Widgets 1.6.0.322

Pros

NONE at all

Cons

I tried the snap.do removal and it is garbage and tried to remove this by even going to config and reset then it comes back.
In every new tab it opens with snap.do. I use to trust CNET for downloads. Now so disappointed they are letting programs being downloaded like this that is malware some on the internet even refers to Snap.do a as a virus.

"SNAP.DO is a Nightmare; C-NET is now evil in my view"

August 27, 2013  |  By blok01c23232323

 |  Version: Snap.do Browser Widgets 1.6.0.322

Pros

Absolutely no pros - this is purely a malicious piece of hijacking software. When one tries to uninstall through windows, it only gives the option to 'hide' the software. Not remove it.

Cons

A waste of a large part of ones life trying to remove this. I am trying to salvage some back-ups before I scrap my OS because of this. It is truly a nightmare; and I hope everyone who created, and, is perpetrating this crime get some kind of justice before they leave this Earth. Curse you Snap.do; and curse cnet and tucows for spreading this misery.

Summary

I simply don't understand how "legitimate companies" could be peddling this disease...? I can only assume that they are profiting from it - if only indirectly. I signed up to Cnet only to write this review; and I consider it a grave risk to myself that I gave this illegitimate company my personal info. Please everyone, do everything you can to stay away from Snap.do

"Very irritating."

July 19, 2013  |  By JonesT777

 |  Version: Snap.do Browser Widgets 1.6.0.322

Pros

There are absolutely NO pros to this virus.

Cons

Virus. Hijacks your computer (browsers, mostly) and slows it down. It's a pain in the butt to remove (I had to use CCleaners registry remover four times, I had to change the home page in each browser, I had to uninstall with Revo, and so on). This is a TERRIBLE product. DO NOT DOWNLOAD!

Summary

Do not download this terrible virus.

"CNet download with Snap Do piggyback"

November 24, 2012  |  By marant194

 |  Version: Snap.do Browser Widgets 1.6.0.322

Pros

None I have been able to determine.

Cons

Cannot get rid of it with editing the Registry. CNet should be ashamed!

Summary

CNet should remove all vestiges of Snap Do and provide a method to remove it from infected computers, since they are responsible for the infection in the first place.

Pros

After I spend the next hour attempting to uninstall this piece of **** malware, I'll get back to you.

They are thieving scum, guilty of breaking and entering - and then not leaving.

Summary

The fact that CNET has a terrorist download aggravates the crap out of me.
