How is Plus HD transferred to your Chrome?
This malware gets transferred into your computer through different programs or software that you seek online and download or install on your computer. It is placed very strategically under different platforms and may be concealed under an advertisement or an additional search or even just a pop up. What seem as totally harmless and just some extra windows on the background while you are enjoying your favourite website or videos, these may enter your computer with just a random click. And just as you install or download the program you want, these get installed unseen as well.
Such optional installs are always there in the free software programs, so you must stay aware of what is being installed (keep an eye on the check boxes). Custom install is always recommended as the installer will take the user through all the check boxes mandatorily.

At an initial stage, there won’t be any apparent indications so that you have an idea what has been installed on your computer. However, there sure are some minute differences between your usual Chrome experiences compared to your experience with this malware attached to it. For example, some words on your usual websites may appear highlighted now. These words are hyperlinked, and as soon as your cursor moves over these words, different ads pop up on your web page blocking your usual access. These pages are unintentionally accessed by you and many others which increases the traffic on that page, generating a huge revenue for the developer who created that page or website. A very clear difference between these hyperlinks and the other usual ones is that these hyperlinks have double underlines instead of the usual single underline for the general hyperlinks.
