hdshop

Some programs do not even need to have an official distributor to arrive at target systems. Take Hdshop for example. When this application gets installed on your computer, it says that it allows you to watch all YouTube videos in HD. Why then, you might ask, it has the “shop” in its name? The answer to that is that apart from supposedly allowing you to watch videos in high definition, this application also displays a lot of commercial discount offers and online shopping coupons. It may be rather annoying, so unless you installed this application on purpose, you should remove hdshop from your computer.

Based on the research performed buy our computer security specialists, the application is directly related to yet another adware program called HD-Plus. It is distributed with third party installers and downloaders, so you can never know which program hdshop it may arrive with, but we have noticed that this adware application is often installed together with EZ YouTube Video Downloader. Therefore, it is very likely that hdshop makes use of the same distribution channels as this browser application. Take note, however, that EX YouTube Video Downloader may also be bundled with browser hijackers, so be careful of hdshop as well.

Once hdshop is installed on your computer, it adds extensions to Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer web browsers. Then, every time you access such websites as eBay, Walmart, BestBuy or others, hdshop will display coupons that should allow you to purchase the goods you are searching for at an optimal price. Nevertheless, one cannot exactly be sure that the information provided by hdshop is reliable. After all, the adware application uses Crossrider engine, which is employed by Lyrics adware, HD Totla and TornTV adware applications.

We need to be careful when we install and make use of such applications as hdshop. Although they are not direct computer security threats, we can never know what malicious third party will exploit the application for dangerous purposes. For example, hdshop could be easily used to shady online marketing schemes, or it may redirect you to affiliated websites to boost their traffic count. Last but not least, in the long run clicking on hdshop pop-ups might even expose you to malware distribution scheme, and that is a kind of a possibility you definitely cannot ignore.

Therefore, the sooner you remove hdshop from your computer the better. On top of that, after manual removal, get yourself a powerful antimalware tool that will safeguard the system from similar threats in the future.
