Plus-HD is a browser add-on which automatically enhances YouTube videos by providing them in the high definition format. The application is published by Kimahari Software and is available at plus-hd.com. We recommend that you remove Plus-HD from your browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox, because the application is ad-supported and can install SweetPacks Toolbar and change the settings of the browsers.

The additional toolbar is presented on one of the pages of the installation wizard and if you do not select the Advances Installation to uncheck three boxes, the changes are made automatically. SweetPacks Toolbar contains a search box powered by Bing, enables the user to access myplayyard.com, check the weather forecast at accuweather.com, and read CNN news. Even though Plus-HD distributes SweetPacks, the toolbar has it is own privacy policy. As to the chances of the home page, it is changed to start.sweetpacks.com. The startup page generates two advertisements at a time, one of which is generated by Plus-HD. You will recognize the advertisement from the label given below the ad, which reads “Ads by Plus-HD”.

Plus-HD can be provided with various advertisements from different advertising services. Play-HD may generate web-banners, interstitial ads, full-page ads, and coupons. Even though you may find advertisements that promotes well-known products, do not click on those ads. They are presented to help website owners to increase the number of clicks, raise the conversion rate, and earn money. Moreover, Plus-HD does not control the content of the third-party websites, so once you are taken to, for example, a shopping website or some other website, you interact with that website but not the application.

The so-called adware program may also use some tracking methods in order to determine how you browse the Internet. One of the means to monitor your browsing behavior is the use of cookies. They contain information about how you interact with the product, what search terms you use, what websites you access, and so on. The information is used for commercial purposes, such as marketing and promotion, which means that the service may also provide you with advertisements which are more relevant to your search terms than they are at the moment.

If you have agreed to in install SweetPacks and alter the settings of the system, now you have to rid the browsers of the two programs. In order to remove Plus-HD and the toolbar successfully, we recommend that you implement SpyHunter. It will easily delete SweetPacks and the adware program and will also fix your browsers, not to mention the fact that you will be shield from various computer threats.
