I believe this malware entered my computer on a CNET download.

Snapdo adds a toolbar to your browser, hijacks your default search engine and is very difficult to remove.

I first tried removal via the control panel, then ran search and found it in a folder local disk (usually C)/documents &settings/my name/ local service/application data/smartbar

One file resisted many attempts at deletion and I tried so many things I can't remember what finally worked.

I still have problems with the search engine defaults.

Why doesn't Malwarebytes clean this thing out?
