Search.snapdo.com is a search engine, which should be avoided just like the negatively famous snap.do. The main reason, why it is NOT recommended using this site when browsing on the Internet, is that it hijacks web browsers, causes annoying redirections that lead people to unwanted websites and displays misleading pop-up ads. It is done for one simple reason – scammers seek to increase the traffic to specific websites and earn some easy money. However, these redirections may also reroute you to malicious website that may install dangerous virus on your computer. Besides, you may surprisingly find Search.snapdo.com hijacked your start page, new tab page and default search engine. Please, do NOT ignore that because it's a clear sign that your machine is infected with browser hijacker, which is responsible for promoting Search.snapdo.com.

WHY DO I SEE Search.snapdo.com ON MY BROWSERS?

As we have mentioned, Search.snapdo.com redirects start as soon as this virus attacks its target computer. Typically, it gets inside its system in a bundle with other programs, so you should always have updated anti-spyware in order to avoid this threat. Once it attacks its target computer, this browser hijacker modifies some of PC's parameters and affects Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox browsers. As a result, victim finds himself/herself disabled from entering Google, Yahoo and other typical search engine. In addition, he/she starts suffering from unwanted pop-up ads and similar things that interrupt browsing. Please, do NOT leave Search.snapdo.com on your browsers if it has showed up there without any permission asked.

I also ran Hijack This and it found three entries for "feed.snap.do" which I removed. I also ran regedit and did same search and found three more entries for "feed.snap.do" which I deleted. I also blocked the site in Firefox. You can get the free version of HiJack This @ http://sourceforge.net/projects/hjt/ . After the two above steps is when I did all of the Browser Resets and it seems to have taken care of it. I did not have the snap program showing in my Program List to be able to uninstall.
When I change my default homepage it continues to show up with snapdo
this does not work, snapdo is removed but I am still getting the goddamn search.snapdo.com when I open a new tab.
