Do you know what MyClipHD is?
MyClipHD is nothing but a potentially unwanted application classified as adware program. It is responsible for displayed a wide variety of commercial advertisements on a number of popular websites. MyClipHD can be installed on all main web browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. It also shows that users are generally aware of the fact that the application is installed on their computers, or at least they should be. Consequently, they should also be able to remove MyClipHD from your computer without any difficulties.
The main problem related to this adware application is the fact that MyClipHD relies on third party advertising networks to generate content for its pop-ups and other types of ads. The same tactics is employed by other adware applications developed by the same team at Bundlelore Ltd, for example, Actual Click Shopping or OMG Music. It is also the reason why adware applications are seldom reliable – even though it is not their initial intention they can easily expose you to corrupted content and eventually it might even lead to malware infection. Thus, before any of that happens you need to uninstall MyClipHD.

Even if an adware application has an official homepage it is more likely that it is distributed via bundled downloads. Computer security experts note that it is rather hard to come across a program that carries MyClipHD’s installation file bundled with its own setup, but it does not rule out the possibility that MyClipHD might come as an additional feature of any software or shareware. If you go through the installation process skipping most of the setup steps, you will definitely end up with MyClipHD being installed on your computer.
Once the program’s setup is complete, MyClipHD begins displaying ads in all the websites the plug-in is compatible with, for example, YouTube or eBay. Although the pop-ups are not malicious on their own, such applications as MyClipHD almost NEVER review the content that gets embedded on the ads. The adware application provides only a “vehicle” that delivers the ads, and so basically anyone who knows how can make use of MyClipHD to promote their own content.
Your main concern is that dangerous third parties could exploit MyClipHD for malware distribution. That is naturally an extreme case of third party exploitation, but even if that does not happen, you still should consider the fact that MyClipHD collects information on your web browsing habits, and although this information is not personally identifiable, it could be leaked to third parties and get used in various marketing schemes.
Removing MyClipHD is an obvious move if you want to ensure your computer’s safety. While you are at it, remove all the other potentially unwanted programs from your computer as well.
