What is HD-VV?

HD is a web browser extension (built on the CrossRider platform) that injects display advertising in the user's browser. Ads are displayed in the form of banners and contextual text-links and are both injected in white space areas of the HTML page or over existing ads of the underlying web site. These ads are typically for PC optimization utilities, other bundled malware or other types of malvertising.

Overview

During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up (this is typically done to avoid any UAC prompts). It adds a Browser Helper Object (BHO) to Internet Explorer. The main program executable is utils.exe. Typically most users end up uninstalling this just after a few days. The software installer includes 27 files and is usually about 15.08 MB (15,811,096 bytes).
  • Possible malware installed by this program
  • Starts automatically
  • Loads into the web browser
  • Installed as part of a co-bundle
  • The experts agree, you should remove it!
Warning, multiple anti-virus scanners have detected possible malware in HD-VV.
