It is alarming how users install various plug-ins to their browsers without even checking whether the app in question is reliable or not. VeeHD is one of those adware applications that function like browser extensions, but in reality they are just money making machines for adware developers. Unless you remove VeeHD from your computer, you will be spammed with annoying pop-up ads that will not allow you to browse the web leisurely. Seemingly harmless pop-ups might also lead to severe computer infections, especially if you accidentally click a corrupted link that initiates malware installation. Therefore, it is more than obvious that adware programs should not be taken lightly as they could be the first step towards the downfall of your system security.
VeeHD belongs to the same group of adware applications as Ads by Lights Cinema, Cinema Now, HDview, and others. All of these applications are based on the Crossrider engine, so we can say that VeeHD is no different from its predecessors. The main difference is that we were not able to find a homepage for this application. Usually, adware programs based on the Crossrider engine are known to have official websites (even if they do not contribute much to the overall distribution network). However, there is no such thing for this application. Instead, VeeHD travels in software packages when users download freeware from file sharing websites. The installer might also be hiding behind random pop-up ads on adware-related websites, so the point is that you have to be really careful whenever you download freeware or visit unfamiliar websites. Adware programs are not malicious security threats, but you most definitely do not want them on your PC.
This program will try to convince you that it can improve streaming video quality. It says that with VeeHD you can watch almost any stream in HD, and it does not lag. To provide you with this service, the program adds an extension to your default browser. However, our security researchers have found that VeeHD does not do what it has promised. Instead of improving the video stream, it collects information on what websites you visit so it could generate your online profile. That is necessary to display commercial advertisements when you visit appropriate websites.
Thus, with this adware program installed on your PC, you will soon be flooded with the ads labeled as “ads by VeeHD” and “ads by TheVeeHD.” These ads will look like they can provide you with something you really need, but that is just a false impression. VeeHD collected information on your browsing habits to MAKE its ads look like they are useful while in reality they only expose you to tons of unreliable information.
Any computer security-minded user would want to protect her system from potential threats, so your first step in achieving that would be removing VeeHD for good. When you are done deleting this application via Control Panel, run a full system scan with the SpyHunter free scanner. The program most definitely arrived bundled with other unwanted apps, so you have to get rid of them all as well.
