The website www.installssource.com has a software called HDvidCodec, created by CoolMirage Ltd that contains Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs).

This is how the HDvidCodec Software website looks

HDvidCodec Website

The HDvid Codec contains a toolbar called HDVidCodec Delta bar and a program called WebCake that will display online advertisements on your computer while you browse the internet.

Personally, I do not see the reason for downloading this HD VidCodec and do not recommend downloading and installing it.

HDVidCodec installation file is called codec_pack_209684_ch.exe. During the installation process you will be asked to accept the terms and conditions of the VidCodec and Webcake. If you do, you are legally giving permission to allow these programs to display online advertisements on your computer.

    I canceled the installation as soon as I saw mention on the screen of a toolbar and it installed anyway so if you get as far as I did, please go and check your Programs and Features list in Control Panel and make sure that its removed from your system.

    I sorted by date and found that, not only had the codec thing been installed, but 2 other programs as well.
