We WindowsUninstaller.org stuff strongly recommend that you guys thoroughly remove ViddyHD from your PC. Check or review the outlined reasons below.
Reason 1: Its original installer "viddyhd-download-manager_setup.exe" (MD5, af8824cf49c57b17465d9dcbf96f5ed0) has been flagged as MALWARE by 6 security program vendors
* AVG, MalSign.Roadstar Media

* TrendMicro-HouseCall, TROJ_GEN.F47V1230
* VIPRE, Jottix (fs)
Reason 2: It installed Free Download Manager (AKA, FDM
) without any notification! It too prompted users to install malware like conduit's Search Protect
