It’s all the same what extension you want to download, it can be the security vulnerability for the browser. Safe-Saver Generic is not an exclusion. All software vendors produce security patches and bother about the security of their users. But if you activate any browser add-on, then software companies cannot guarantee that your PC will not be infected. Online scammers can use the add-on as it were a door to your PC. No doubt there is a safe solution for this problem: download extensions from reputed and dependable vendors only. But is not guaranteed protection from internet criminals and software infections. I advise not to have browser extensions at all.
But if you still need to download any browser extension in that case you should be ready that the extension will receive compliance to record your private information that you type on different web pages and can give it to the third parties. You should know that to download a browser add-on is like downloading software. Will you install an utility if you did not hear about its vendor? I think, no. So, you also should think about the browser add-on that you are eager to install.
Safe-Saver Generic is an advertising browser add-on that installs some other dangerous objects. Is there any guarantee that the special offers are 100% genuine? Of course, no. So, you should not believe the pop-ups and its promises. Also you should not visit the websites of the shown promotions as they can be malicious and so, in its train, your computer can be infected with a true virus on your computer.

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 methods are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also say that paid antiviruses always has support service (often for free) that will remove the virus like in an expensive computer repair shop.
