How do I completely uninstall Snap Toolbar?

DelennDax7
A friend, who doesn't know anything about computers yet, has gotten infected with the Snap Toolbar. The only thing I can find so far about how to get it off is a "Remove Snap Toolbar" exe file published by www.securitystronghold.com - BUT I worry about telling her to download this as Web Of Trust has graded this site as RED. Has anybody else used this tool & is it safe, despite the site reputation? Thanks, Dax

    Running Spybot this morning I discovered toolbar.snap on my system. Spybot could not delete the registry files in normal or safe mode so I set Spybot to do a scan on reboot before windows loaded. It took about half an hour to scan my HD but did remove the malware! :)
    I did another Spybot scan after I had booted up and it seems to be gone for now (unless it is set to reactivate at a later date).
    I hate fooling with the registry so was very relieved this method seems to have worked.
    As always, Spybot rocks! It was recommended to me by Dell tech support a few years ago.

    It depends on what version of Spybot you are using.If you are using Spybot 2 and it was unable to remove all the malware, it should automatically show a popup window, bottom left corner, asking if you would like a boot up scan.
    Earlier versions let you configure it to do so. You can find how out at Spybot forums.
