Ads by Go HD. How to remove? (Uninstall guide)

removal by Ugnius Kiguolis - -   Also known as Go HD ads, Go HD adware, Go HD virus | Type: Adware

What is Go HD?

Go HD may look like a genuine browser add-on and may even convince you that it's capable of enhancing your online video viewing experience. As its name already suggests, it is supposed to enhance the quality of online videos to the highest possible. Unfortunately, in reality this program may act in a 'slightly' different manner. First of all, we doubt if it's capable of enhancing the quality of online videos in any way. Furthermore, we want to warn you that Go HD may get inside computers without being noticed. If it manages to get inside your computer suspiciously, it may hijack all most popular web browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer, suspiciously as well and start causing a real havoc on them all. Instead of improved video quality, this adware is more likely to deliver tons of sponsored Go HD ads. Usually, they inform people about various deals, offers, discounts, coupons, promo codes and other commercial content. Even if at the first inspection they may seem interesting and useful, sooner or later you will be annoyed by them and will opt for getting rid of them. The easiest way to do that is to run a full system scan with a reputable anti-spyware, such as Reimage and that's what we recommend doing if you want to prevent computer-related issues that this adware may cause. Beware that it's mainly used for affiliate marketing and seek to drive visitor's traffic to affiliate websites. However, since no one knows what websites it seeks to promote, you should avoid Go HD redirects. Even more, keep in mind that this misleading adware may collect your search queries, websites visited, data entered, time spent, clicks, impressions and so on. We do not recommend ignoring this fact because no one knows where gathered information may be used.

How can Go HD hijack my computer?

Go HD is an ad-supported extension that may land on all most popular web browsers without asking your permission directly. It means that it certainly asks for permission and cannot get inside computer absolutely hidden. That's one of the reasons why it should not be confused with a virus. However, since it commonly travels along with freewares and sharewares, people often skip notification about it and install unintentionally. Such distribution method is called 'bundling' and very often displease people due to the inadvertent installation of unwanted programs. If you want to stay away from various add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars, and extensions that once inside appear to be adwares or browser hijackers, you should be very attentive when installing free software. Avoid Quick or Basic installation option and instead of it select Advanced or Custom. After that, follow every notification step-by-step and do not skip a single detail. If you spot a notification claiming that you accept to uninstall Go HD add-on or any other program that you are not familiar with, opt out of it. In general, you should never install any of additional components that are traveling along with freewares if you want to stay safe.
