Whenever you download freeware, you have to be careful about additional programs that come with it. It is very likely that you have installed 4HD on your computer accidentally. This adware application wants to make an impression that it is a useful tool, but it is obvious that it cannot improve your online video watching experience in any way. 4HD will only spam you with annoying advertisements that will interfere with your web browsing. You need to remove 4HD if you want to avoid various computer security threats. You should also make sure that there are no other unwanted programs on-board.
Granted, 4HD is not a computer infection. This adware program can be downloaded directly from 4hd.com. The official website makes it seem as though 4HD is a useful add-on that can help you watch various online videos in HD. However, the program’s description is written in poor English, so it does not look too trustworthy. What’s more, the description claims that 4HD is a “FREE add-on,” but nothing comes entirely for free these days. In other words, even though you do not have to pay for installing 4HD on your computer, it is very likely that this program will display commercial third-party advertisements to survive.
Unlike most of the adware programs we have dealt with previously, 4HD does not add any extension to your browser. It only displays commercial ads on eBay, Walmart, and other popular online stores. The ads are generated using a 4hd.exe process that always runs in the system background. Since there are no extensions added, users may not notice that 4HD is installed on their computers (especially if it came bundled with freeware). However, you can always check for unfamiliar process via Windows Task Manager. Also, it is easy to see that something is amiss when you are constantly assaulted by various pop-ups.
Fortunately, it is not complicated to manually remove 4HD from your computer. We provide manual removal instructions that will help you uninstall 4HD via Control Panel.
