Tried it didn't work tried the 2nd option to reinstall snap do & then remove but something went wrong & it didn't reinstall! My son say's he will try & manually get rid of it later today, whatever that means. This snap do is very persistent I am determined to get rid of it somehow. Thanks for the help.

A lousy 'software' company installs their software on my machine without my knowledge or approval then when I can't get rid of it I'm expected to re-install their poxy software or call their call center? - let me guess, I have to pay for the 'privilege' of having them remove their software?

At the very least they'll have my email address, at the worst they can just install as much lousy crap on my pc as they wan't and there isn't anything I can do about it cos they know more about software than I do so they feel 'justified' in teaching me a lesson. So if I know more about removing their fingers with a circular saw then will they think it ok when I feel 'justified' for doing it?

In the USA I guess you call these people 'enterprising' or 'entrepreneurs'; in the uk we just call them by what they really are, SCUMBAGS

CNet should be sued over this behavior

They are no better than porn sites who install virii on computers. Altering people's browsers without consent should be illegal, and I hope someone does prosecute CNet over this behavior.

Start to Run, type in regedit and click ok. At the top is Edit, click that to Find. Type in ask(dot)com. keep deleting it on the left unless there are other programs listed on the right - just remove that one. keep searching with Enter or F3 until it finished searching. Darrell
