Snap.do (Smartbar developed by Resoft) is potential malware, categorized as a browser hijacker and spyware, that causes Internet browsers to redirect to the snap.do search engine. Snap.Do can be manually downloaded from the Resoft website, though it can be concluded that many users are entrapped by their unethical terms. It affects Windows and can be removed through the Add/Remove program menu regularly. Snap.Do also can download many malicious toolbars, add-ons, and plug-ins like DVDVideoSoftTB, General Crawler, and Save Valet.

General Crawler, installed by Snap.do, has been known to use a backdoor process because it re-installs and re-enables itself every time an affected user removes it through their browser(s).

Snap.do will disable the option to even change your homepage and default search engine. It will usually revert the home page back to its own if it is changed.

Resoft will track the following information:

The Internet domain and IP address from which the user accesses the Resoft Products. (location, ID, etc.) Screen resolution of the user's computer monitor (display). The date and time the user intentionally or unintentionally accesses Resoft products. The pages the user is visiting with the Resoft Products (with or without knowledge of using Resoft products, Snap.do) If the user willingly or unwillingly linked to a Resoft website from another referring website, the address of that site. By using the Resoft Products, the user consents to have their personal data transferred to and processed both within and outside of the United States of America.

By using the Resoft website, the user agrees to the preceding uses of their information in this way by Resoft.

Removal of this virus can easily be done with certain virus scanners like Malwarebytes or AdwCleaner.
