Blocklist Plus-HD add-ons... somehow

I haven't come across an XPI for these, but they use a new ID for each version, in the form "${guid1}@{guid2}.com". E.g., Plus-HD-1.1 Plus-HD-1.3 Plus-HD-1.5 Plus-HD-1.6 Plus-HD-1.7 Plus-HD-2.2 Plus-HD-2.3 Plus-HD-2.4 Plus-HD-2.5 Plus-HD-2.6 Plus-HD-3.5 Plus-HD-3.7 Plus-HD-3.8 Plus-HD-4.1 Plus-HD-4.4 Plus-HD-4.5
This seems to be the official source:

Care to give it a try?
Yeah, that installer silently installs it.
Except that it installs 'Plus HD' 9.91.10 with ID
Kris, do you want a xpi and installer with that file? Furthermore, it creates tasks to install (and reinstall?) itself and terminates running browsers.

Do you need a software which silently installs Plus HD 7.6 (and the stuff like install log etc.)?
If you have it, then yes, I'd like to see it. The installer from comment 1 installs something, but I don't know that it's related.
This is an installer of the ExtractNow application. The homepage http:// www . extractnow . com/ offers a download from cnet which seems to be a stub. The download from CHIP http://www . chip . de/downloads/ExtractNow_48251973.html offers to install third party stuff, but even after unchecking the checkbox and declining that TOS, Plus HD 7.6 gets installed.

Hrm. That installer changes my homepage and search engine to It doesn't seem to install any extensions, though.
OK, it's pretty flaky, but eventually it does install a extension. Which we should block. But that's another bug. It also uses an external app to draw its toolbar over our browser window. Ugh.
