What is ClipyHD?
ClipyHD is an adware program that presents you with ClipyHD pop-ups and other types of commercial adverts. The program has no benefits to the computer user and the only reason it was created is to make profit by promoting various websites. Therefore your browsers will be filled with ads labeled “Brought by ClipyHD”, “Powered by ClipyHD”, “ClipyHD Deals” and so on.
The program usually comes bundled with freeware and shareware. It is compatible with all popular browsers which means it will disturb you no matter which one of your browsers you use. We recommend to delete ClipyHD from your system.
How does ClipyHD work?
Ad-supported applications like ClipyHD usually come bundled with free software. So if you have recently acquired freeware from websites like softonic.com, cnet.com, download.com or a similar webpage, that is how ClipyHD got access to your PC. Computer users rarely check all information provided in the installation wizard and that is how potentially unwanted programs get installed. Next time be sure to check all information provided in End User License Agreement and choose Advanced Installation to deselect the additional software. It is better to avoid adware than to deal with it afterwards.
Keeping adware on your PC is not a good idea for a couple of reasons. First of all, it disturbs your browsing by providing you with a variety of useless ads. Secondly, these ads slow down your Internet connection. Moreover, the program tracks your cookies and records your browsing habits. This data could be used to personalize the ads you see or it could be sold to third parties. Last, but not least, ClipyHD may present you with false information and malicious links. If you follow a corrupted link you could infect your computer with malware that will cause a lot more damage than the adware itself. Therefore you should terminate ClipyHD as soon as you can.
How to remove ClipyHD?

If you know what program that is you can delete it via Start -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a program/Add or remove programs. If you are using Windows 8 you can access Control Panel by entering it in the Search box (Win+S). Afterwards, you will also have to erase ClipyHD from your browsers. Instructions on how to do that are provided below.
