SearchSnacks is a freeware that can be easily downloaded online. We are forced to classify it as adware application, because it displays a wide range of commercial and other type of advertisements. Although SearchSnacks is not a direct computer security threat, you are strongly recommended to remove it from your system, especially if you had no intention of installing it on the PC in the first place. Since SearchSnacks has more than just one distributing method, sometimes users may install the application on their computers without even realizing it. It means that we always have to be careful about what we install on our computers.
If we were to access the official homepage for SearchSnacks we would see that the application is promoted as a software program that is “quite and satisfying without calories”. The application provides you with search and translation functions, allowing you to find anything online easy. SearchSnacks makes use of Bing search results, and it even provides you with general information on your search keyword via Wikipedia. Since SearchSnacks appears in a dialog box, there is no need to open a new window in order to use it.
When you download and install SearchSnacks from the official homepage, you can toggle several options during the program setup. You can choose whether you want to install SearchSnacks on Internet Explorer, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox web browsers. It is also very likely that you are offered the same options when SearchSnacks is downloaded bundled with other freeware. However, the problem is that users seldom read every single installation wizard step carefully, thus missing the opportunity to customize the setup according to their likes and preferences.
Despite the fact that SearchSnacks is promoted as a useful application for online search, it comes with particular disadvantages as well. After all, it is add-supported software. As a result, with SearchSnacks installed on your PC, you can expect to experience a flow of intext ads, coupons and deals offers. SearchSnacks is also known to redirect to surveys and malware installers sometimes, although that happens due to third party content embedded into the commercial ads, and such applications as SearchSnacks are seldom liable for third party content.
The application itself is based on Quickknowledge which is yet another potentially unwanted application. Also, apart from the official sources, SearchSnacks can come bundled with uPlayer installer, Conduit Search protect, PC Optimizer Pro, Yula and other adware or freeware applications.
Since SearchSnacks presents you with particular computer security issues, the application should not be tolerated. It would be for the best to remove SearchSnacks from your computer right now, and you can do it via Control Panel without any difficulties. Do not forget that scanning the PC with a licensed antispyware tool after manual removal is also highly recommended, as there might be some residual files left.
