- Annoying Pop-up's
- Shows commercial adverts
- Connects to the internet without permission
SearchSnacks is an adware application that is promoted as a useful search and translation tool. It would be great if this application did not support ads, but unfortunately, most of the freeware apps need commercial ads to survive and SearchSnacks is of no exception. Although this application does not try to infect you with malware it is known to be sometimes exploited in malware distribution schemes, so your best choice in this situation would be removing SearchSnacks as soon as possible. For manual removal, you can refer to the instructions below this article.
It is true that SearchSnacks can be downloaded at search-snacks.com. From there you can install the application on Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome web browsers. You can actually choose whether you want to add the extension on your browser or not. However, if you go through the setup automatically, you will most probably miss those options. It is exactly what happens when SearchSnacks gets installed together with other freeware applications.
As you can probably tell, direct download from the official homepage is not the only method of distribution for this application. SearchSnacks also comes bundled with freeware applications such as Yula, Conduit Search Protect, uPlayer, PC Optimizer Pro and so on. It is very unlikely that SearchSnacks get installed silently, so it is extremely important that you read all the installation steps, otherwise you will not be able to opt out.
We have mentioned above that SearchSnacks does not try to infect you with malware on purpose, but that kind of possibility exists. Due to the fact that SearchSnacks is an ad-supported application, it needs to generate and display commercial ads. As a result, the application displays a lot of pop-ups, pop-under or intext ads, as well as deal offers and discount coupons. Some of the pop-ups might be embedded with links to online surveys and even malware installers.
However, since SearchSnacks is not a computer infection, it is not hard to remove it. This program comes with an entry on the list of installed programs, so you can uninstall it through Control Panel. What is more, you should also run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner, because there are definitely other unwanted applications installed on the system – after all, SearchSnacks seldom comes alone.
