No doubt there is a safe way out from this situation: download extensions from popular and reliable software vendors only. But is not 100% protection from internet criminals and software infections. It is better not to install add-ons at all.
It is important to know that every installed browser add-on has the permission to use your sensitive data that you enter when complete a form on-line. The information, including your phone number, your name, electronic mail address, etc. Can be delivered to some public relations. Be prudent installing and using any browser add-ons and do not install them, if you have not a true want in it.

Also you should not click the links of the demonstrated ads as they can be viral and so, in its train, your PC can be infected with a true computer threat on your PC.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
You should know that manual removal instructions that remove RadPlayer from browsers are completely secure and you can perform them not being afraid that you harm your PC. Also these instructions are very effective, so you will reach the aim and the extension will be removed with all its manifestations. It is an easy way of removal as well; it yields merely to the automatic way of removal. But at times, using this technique users notice that the program returns to the browser and they have to perform any other methods to uninstall it.
But manual technique that instruct you to eliminate the files and registry items is the most dangerous one. If you risk to use this way of removal, then you should retain just one ordinary rule: do not forget to do the backup of the registry. Also this removal should be executed only by the user that knows what and why he should delete.If you will eliminate some files or registry keys and values that do not pertain to RadPlayer, then your system will not load next time. Experts will not step off and can enjoy the efficacy of this manual method.
Automatic method is the method when a user runs any removal tool to solve the problem. This way is the most harmless and powerful. It is also not a difficult one. You should just install the antivirus software that has RadPlayer in its signature base. This method is more advantageous because you will have the antispyware and antimalware scanner that will protect the computer against the future possible computer infections.
Concerning the sums of money that users may pay for 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 (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 ways of virus removal, I should mention the Computer Repair Shop Service and paid Antivirus program.
These methods are the most efficient. In spite of the great distinction 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 notice that paid antiviruses always has support service (often free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.
