Do you know what Gohd is?
Gohd is one of the many Crossrider applications that have been created to promote unreliable content. If you notice a lot of annoying pop-ups when you browse the Internet, you should check whether you have Gohd installed on your computer. Luckily, you can remove Gohd manually, but that might not be enough to remove all the files related to this application. That is why we strongly recommend that you acquire a legitimate computer security program and run a full system scan. This will allow you to ensure your computer’s security.
Apart from displaying annoying pop-ups, Gohd may also try to convince you to download a number of potentially unwanted applications. For example, this adware program is known to be related to BoBrowser, which is considered to be a potentially unwanted application. On top of that, Gohd can also track your web browsing habits to generate your online profile. This data will be used later on to customized commercial ads. Such adware programs like Gohd need to tailor pop-up content according to your likes and preferences because this increases the chances of your clicking any of those ads.Gohd screenshot

It shouldn’t be surprising because Gohd comes from a big group of adware applications that includes the likes of Cinplus, Give4sure, PlusTotal, MediaPlayersVideos, and so on. The point with these Crossrider apps is that they seldom get distributed directly. These programs often come in software packages, so users probably don’t even know when they install adware. What’s more, Gohd is known to have several different versions, for example, GoHD 1.2, GoHD+3.1, GoHDv7.2.1, etc. As you might guess from its name, this application is supposed to improve your online video watching experience. Nevertheless, there is no guarantee that it can really enhance an online stream quality. For all its worth, Gohd might as well degrade the quality to increase the loading speed.
In fact, the main purpose of Gohd is not to enhance your online video watching experience, but to generate income for its creators, and the program does that by displaying the aforementioned ads. At first, it might seem that Gohd ads will provide you with relevant information, but the adware manages to give that impression because it tracks your online activity. On the other hand, there is no guarantee that clicking an ad will lead you to a reliable website, so you should never do that.
Open Control Panel and uninstall Gohd at once. It might not be enough to remove all the adware-related files and additional programs, so, after manual removal, be sure to use the SpyHunter free scanner to be sure your system is absolutely clean.
