Guide on how to uninstall Plus-HD
Plus-HD is a browser plug-in that allows you to watch high quality videos online on your browser. However, not everyone may want to have this application on their computers. The problem is that Plus-HD might as well be considered potentially unwanted program, because it is often categorized as adware. It means that although PlusHD is free, it supports commercial ads. Due to the fact, that users often get exposed to potentially malicious content via third party pop-up ads, it is highly recommended to remove Plus-HD from your computer. By removing this application you will avoid other potential threats.
One of the main reasons why users are discouraged to use Plus-HD is the fact that it is created via the same Crossrider platform that was used to develop LyricsPal, Savings Wave, LyricStar and other adware applications. Although the plug-in could be used to watch HD videos online, you still cannot overlook that Plus-HD might display a lot of commercial ads with third party content.
Third party content can be dangerous, because the plug-ins that displays it cannot be held responsible for its security. Thus, PlusHD does not review the ad content, and it might get exploited by malicious third parties for malware distribution as well!
Naturally, it is possible to download Plus HD at its official website, and if you have done so, then there is no way that you will consider this plug-in malicious. However, it is very common for such plug-ins to come bundled with freeware, especially if you often download shareware applications from third party websites (like Softpedia, cNet and others). In such a case you may not even notice how you install Plus HD, because users often skip software setup steps to speed up the installation.
Here we need to emphasize that you should ALWAYS read software installation steps carefully, especially if the program is downloaded from a third party file hosting web page. Nevertheless, even if you ended up with unwanted application on your computer, there is no need to panic.
