Is dangerous?

Every user should realize that all the browser add-ons including, no matter if they are functional, are the weak spots for every browser where they are installed. The software companies that created browsers release periodic updates, due to which the safety of the browser is absolute. The existence of any browser add-on can put the browser security at stake. And, as a result, some online offenders are able to infect your computer or collect your private information. If you cannot imagine your life without browser extensions, then I can advise you to download add-ons from reliable software vendors only, probably it will assist you to protect your PC. But you should know that it is better not to download any browser add-ons at all.

But if you still want to download any browser extension then be prepared that the extension will get approval to collect your personal advertisement that you leave on diverse websites and can give it to the third companies. You should realize that to install a browser extension is like downloading an utility. Will you download an utility if its software company is untrustworthy? I recommend you not to. So, you also should be careful downloading the extension that you are going to install. is a browser extension that installs some other dangerous objects. Is there any guarantee that the special offers are 100% real? Of course, no. So, you should not trust the popping-up windows and its promises. Also you should not visit the websites of the shown ads for they can be malicious and so, as a result, your system will be infected with a true computer threat in your system. Activity Statistics

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?

Manual removal method that you can execute to remove from browsers are safe and not so hard as you may think. Probably, only automatic method is easier. This method is very powerful since the browser vendors worry about your right to install or uninstall any browser add-ons. This method will let you to delete all the undesired browser extensions and pop-ups will not exasperate you any more. But sometimes, using this way of removal users are surprised that the adware exists again in the browser and they need to find any other methods to delete it.

Also there is one more manual way of removal using which you should remove files and registry keys and values. The technique is not harmful in case if you will execute it carefully or commit it to the experienced person who knows what and why should be done. In order to make this process safer you should create the backup of the registry. Do not forget that only the listed parts of the extension should be deleted and no other ones otherwise the PC will not load. If you do not know what registry entry is and where it can be, then you are welcome to use automatic method not to harm the computer.

Still the most reliable and the most secure method is automatic. Downloading any antivirus program that includes in its base of viruses, you will delete the undesired browser extension promptly and the add-on will not bother you any more because the antivirus software will defend your system in the future.

Concerning the money that users may pay for the removal of the virus I should say that some methods are absolutely free of charge, for example manual removal from browsers, manual professional removal (in the case if you will do it by yourselves), free antivirus software and the removal from Control Panel. But not all of them are effective. The information about the effectiveness of these uninstall techniques I describe in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’, you can see it below. Speaking about the paid techniques of virus removal, I should list the Computer Repair Shop Service and paid Antivirus program.

These methods are the most effective. In spite of the great difference in the price (Repair Shop service depends on the complexity of the problem and may cost up to $300, but paid antivirus costs up to $60) these removal ways are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also say that paid antiviruses always has support service (sometimes for free) that will remove the virus like in an expensive computer repair shop.

Paid Antivirus $25-50 +++ +++ up to 1 hour
