    Snap.Do

    I've been having trouble getting rid of this damned thing. I delete and uninstall every time it pops up, but it keeps reappearing every couple of days. I don't frequent porn sites, and don't visit sites that I don't on a frequent basis. Googling how to get rid of it only says to uninstall the thing, but it keeps re-appearing. Generally the reappearance happens while I'm sleeping, so I'm not sure if it's an auto download thing from a site I frequent and gets re-installed when I shut down my browser what. Malware Bites and AVG both don't find any viruses, trojans, or malware when I run scans. This has been irritating me for about a month now. Any ideas from IT people?

    Re: Snap.Do

    WHen I had a problem with a virus that seemed impossible to get rid of despite me uninstalling and reinstalling affected programs, I think in one case there was a .exe file in the startup that would reinstall it when I turned on the computer the next time.

    How did you get rid of it? Or find out which file it was for that matter?

    If you're on Windows 7, go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> System Configuration. Then go to the Startup tab. You should see all programs that launch automatically when your computer turns on. If there's something there that looks like it shouldn't be, remove it from the list.

    Re: Snap.Do

    It's been long enough I don't remember what the file was called but even after I thought it was fixed I would get warnings from Trend Micro telling me a trojan virus or other malicious file was trying to download on my computer. I fought that for 3 weeks after supposedly stopping the virus but still dealing with constant warnings from TM. I finally said screw it and reformatted my computer and wiped everything clean and started over.

    Googling the popup screens I was getting talked about malicious files that install on your computer that actually rename themselves and move to different files to keep the antivirus and malaware programs from finding it. It sucked

    I'm not real technical with computers so my terminology and explanations might be a little off but I have a couple buddies who are IT guys as their day job and it even had them stumped. Hope your problem is simpler than that mess

    That's what I did. Went down the long list and googled each line to see if it was good or malicious. But you have to be careful to not just go in and remove ones that don't look right to you unless you know what you're doing which I was not. That's how I got the virus I had to stop but something was still trying to download malicious files after I got rid of the startup program.
