High Unite is an application that is promoted on highunite.com. Even though this web page is considered to be an official website of this program, users cannot find much about the software itself on it. In addition, it is even impossible to download this application from there, which suggests that it is distributed somehow differently. It has been observed that High Unite is the most prevalent in the United States, Germany, and Australia. Of course, it might also enter other systems too. Therefore, we suggest being very careful. If you could not protect your computer and now see that High Unite is installed, it would be best to remove it from the system even though it pretends to be a free tool “designed to enhance your browsing experience.” Luckily, it is not a difficult job, but we still suggest that you read this article carefully to find out why you need to eliminate this program.
You should not trust High Unite blindly because this program is known to be an ad-supported application. This program displays all kinds of ads on a user’s screen, so it falls into this category not without a reason. In most cases, High Unite starts displaying commercial ads later; however, it is still possible to say that High Unite is installed. First of all, Mozilla Firefox users will notice a new extension added. If you use Internet Explorer, you can check Control Panel to find out whether High Unite has managed to enter your system, or you can just check %Program Files% (%Program Files(x86)%). If you can locate the High Unite folder, it means that this program is installed. Users will also find the High Unite folder if they check %Temp%. More experienced users can also access the Registry Editor and try to find these registry keys: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\HighUnite (32-bit Windows) or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\HighUnite (64-bit Windows).
If you are now sure that High Unite is installed on your computer, you should hurry to get rid of this program because it is not reliable. The only thing it is going to do is to flood your screen with all kinds of commercial ads. We have managed to find out that you will see banners, video ads, in-text ads, links, browsing-related ads, interstitial ads, transitional ads, full-page ads, and search-related ads. It is written in the End User License Agreement that “you agree that the Software may display this advertising to you.” It is dangerous to click on ads because you will be taken to third-party web pages. It is unclear whether or not they will have a decent content. Specialists say that you might be even asked to provide your personal information on these third-party web pages, so you might experience privacy-related issues. Even the EULA of High Unite warns users about the dangers which might lie on third-party websites:
We encourage you not to provide any personal information or access any third party content unless you know and are comfortable with its provider.
You will never know when you will end up on a bad web page. Some users simply promise not to click on ads anymore in order not to cause harm to their systems; however, this is definitely not the best solution because you might still click on some kind of ad accidentally.
Believe us, there are hundreds of other Injekt-based adware programs on the web. To the best of our knowledge, High Unite has replaced the following programs: Bronze Aid, High Stairs, Wander Burst, Blazer Deals, Gravity Space, Jungle Net, and Deals Avenue. All these programs are very prevalent on the web, which means that they might slither onto computer and start showing commercial advertisements once again. We have managed to find out that all these programs are distributed in software bundles. There is a slight possibility that users download them too consciously because they believe the promises these programs make. You should always find out whether the application is really trustworthy before installing it on your system.
High Unite is not a program that should be kept installed because it is not reliable. Luckily, it is possible to eliminate it via Control Panel, so we suggest doing that as soon as possible. If you feel that you cannot get rid of High Unite manually, go for the automatic High Unite removal. In other words, scan your system with a powerful antimalware tool, e.g. SpyHunter.
