Hello LeeAnne,

 

The following tutorial was for Babylon Toolbar, but can be used for snap.do(Both are browser hijackers/adware) Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer are covered in this tutorial

The link above will display instructions automatically customized for your operating system and language.

 

After you reset your browsers,  it is highly suggested to use AdwCleaner, as outlined in the tutorial above.  When finished, do a follow up scan with SAS.

 

NOTE: AdwCleaner is a run once type of program,  if needed in the future, download a fresh copy

Hi again LeeAnne,

 

Great, glad to hear it all worked out.    I wouldn't hold this against SAS.   A lot of these type's of distractions are user installed.   A lot of free software comes bundled with other software(Usually PUP"s). And most users rush through the install.   Any time you install anything, do a custom install. That way you can see what is being installed
