HQ-Video-Professional Removal Guide

Do you know what HQ-Video-Professional is?

HQ-Video-Professional is a potentially unwanted application that gets installed on your default browser as an extension. It is compatible with Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer web browsers. HQ-Video-Professional is promoted as a browser plug-in that can improve online video quality on streaming websites. However, it is very unlikely that the add-on is able to do that. What is more, computer security experts strongly recommend removing HQ-Video-Professional from your browser and your computer ASAP. HQ-Video-Professional is often treated as adware, and adware may be related to unsafe content.

It may seem that HQ-Video-Professional is a stand-alone application, but in reality it is just another version of HQ-Video. There are actually quite a few of similar applications and all of them are distributed bundled with freeware. Even if they have official homepages, the direct download links are not available there. Similar add-ons include HQ Video Pro, HQVid1.9v3, HQTotalS and so on. As far as HQ-Video-Professional is concerned, this application generally gets installed onto your computer when you click to download flash video updates or codec on third party ads. It shows that if you need to update your video player, you have to download the update from the official website. Otherwise, you will end up installing other applications you neither need nor want.

What is more, HQ-Video-Professional is said to be directly related to Jollywallet. Jollywallet is an adware application that collects browsing data via tracking cookies and then displays an extensive list of coupons and discount offer pop-ups whenever you access supported online shopping websites. These are supposed to help you purchase the goods you want at an optimal price, but the credibility of the pop-up content is highly questionable as well as their safety.

Therefore, HQ-Video-Professional is of no exception – the add-on may look like a tool that enhances video quality, but in fact it tracks your web browsing habits and then bombards you with a variety of pop-ups. This behavior is more annoying than dangerous, but we have to consider the possibility of third party exploitation as well. HQ-Video-Professional cannot check the credibility of all the pop-ups, so it cannot guarantee that the content will be safe. Hence, when you click a pop-up ad, you click it at your own risk.

For the most part, adware applications display content that once clicked allows its creators to generate financial profit. However, we cannot rule out the possibility of malware infection as well. Hence, you should remove HQ-Video-Professional from your computer and then run a full system scan with SpyHunter free scanner for any other potentially unwanted applications that might be on board.
