I only post this problem today but this macsnap.net pop-up virus keeps on bothering my computer for almost a week now. A full page pop-up appears whenever I use browsers like Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Google Chrome. Safari is not affected by macsnap.net at all.
My computer is running under Windows 7 64-bit. I have scanned it with various tools like anti-virus, anti-malware, and rootkit remover without any success. I don’t know where this came from. I never installed any software lately. I am very careful on this PC and don’t download any kind of freeware. I make sure that every program I installed is licensed and safe.
Going back to macsnap.net, I found out that I am not the only one having this issue. I am not alone who wanted to get rid of macsnap.net pop-up on the computer. There are many computer users who picked up this adware or virus and none of them successfully remove it from infected browser.
Looking at my browser’s add-on settings, I never saw anything relevant to macsnap.net or MacSnap in particular. This pop-up is so annoying, closing it immediately after first appearance may end the bothering because when let it open, it will show multiple pages showing the same content.
