It does not matter what kind of browser extension you want to install, it can be the security vulnerability for the whole system. LuckySearches.com is not an exclusion. All browser vendors produce security patches and bother about the safety of their users. But when you download any extension, then vendors cannot ensure that your PC will not be infected. Hackers can open the add-on as it were a door to the computer. Surely there is a good way out from this situation: install browser add-ons from reputed and dependable vendors only. But is not 100% protection from internet criminals and computer threats. I advise not to install browser extensions at all.
But if you still are eager to install any add-on so be ready that this extension will receive compliance to see your private information that you enter on different web pages and can sell it to the third person. You should realize that to download a browser add-on is like downloading an utility. Will you install a program if you do not know its producer? I recommend you not to. So, you also should think about the extension that you want to install.

So, you should not believe the ads and its coupons. Also you should not click the links of the shown ads for they can be malicious and so, as a result, your system can be infected with a true virus in your system.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
You should understand that manual removal methods that uninstall LuckySearches.com from browsers are absolutely safe and you can perform them not being afraid that you damage your system. I should mention that these ways of removal are efficient, so you will get the wanted result and the browser add-on will be removed with all its manifestations. It is also an easy method; it yields only to the automatic way of removal. But sometimes, using this method users detect that the PUP is installed again in the browser and they have to find any other techniques to remove it.
But there is another manual removal method following which you should delete files, folders and registry entries. The described method is safe if you will execute it gingerly or let the specialist perform it. To make this process safer you should create the backup of the registry. You should remember that only the enumerated elements of the extension should be enumerated and no one more differently the system will not load. If you do not understand what registry entry is and where it can be found, then you are welcome to follow automatic method in order not to harm the PC.
Automatic technique is the method when a user installs any removal utility to solve the problem. The way refers to the most harmless and powerful. It is also not a difficult one. You can just download the antimalware scanner that has LuckySearches.com in its signatures. This removal way is more helpful because you will install the antivirus that will guard the PC against the future possible computer infections.
Concerning the money that users may spend on the removal of the virus I should say that some removal techniques are absolutely free of charge, for example manual removal from browsers, manual professional removal (if you will do it by yourselves), free antivirus software and the removal from Control Panel. But not all of them are powerful. The information about the effectiveness of these uninstall techniques I illustrate in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’, you can see it below. Speaking about the paid methods of virus removal, I should enumerate the Computer Repair Shop Service and paid Antivirus program.
These methods are the most effective. In spite of the great distinction in the price (Repair Shop service depends on the complication of the issue and may cost up to $300, but paid antivirus costs up to $60) these methods are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also say that paid antiviruses always has support service (often free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.

|Computer Repair Shop||$130-$250||+++||+++||up to 4 days|
