HD Streaming Movies virus delivering pop-up ads

How can HD Streaming Movies hijack Windows OS?

HD Streaming Movies is deemed as PUP (potentially unwanted program) because its developers apply ‘bundling’ marketing/distribution technique to spread it widely. Even though it can be downloaded as an individual application, the possibility to increase the downloads is bigger when HD Streaming Movies adware is spread in one pack with other freewares. That’s because people commonly fail to install free programs properly. We believe that you, as well as the majority of Internet users, tend to install free programs quickly and without paying attention to the details given on the installation check boxes. Unfortunately, that’s the biggest mistake because the only way to recognize if the freeware (media player, download manager, PDF creator, etc.) is filled with additional components is to check each installation step. If you are not keen on experiencing HD Streaming Movies redirects to irrelevant websites, disclosing your browsing habits to suspicious third parties, you should remember a couple of useful tips:

  • Select a reliable download source only. Don’t forget that third party file sharing websites may be engaged in the distribution of software packages because that helps to monetize the service;
  • Read EULA and Privacy Policy of the freeware that you are going to install. These sections may inform about cookies and third-party sponsorship, which is a sign that the app should better not be used;
  • Avoid Quick/Basic installation as it may disguise additional components, such as HD Streaming Movies malware;
  • Opt for Custom/Advanced installation method because it expands the process and discloses all components;
  • Finally, check all components that are checked by default and deselect unfamiliar add-ons, plug-ins or toolbars.
