Every user should realize that all the browser extensions including Safe Samurai, no matter if they are useful, are the vulnerabilities for a browser where they are installed. The vendors that created browsers release update patches regularly, due to which the safety of the browser is perfect. The presence of any browser add-on can put the browser security at stake. And, as a consequence, some online offenders can use your PC or steal your private information. If you are not able to imagine your life without add-ons, then I advise to download extensions from well-known software vendors only, possibly it will help you to protect the PC. But you should understand that it is better not to have any browser add-ons at all.
It is important to know that every installed extension has already got the approval to collect your personal info that you impart when fill in some forms on-line. These reports, including your phone number, your name, your email, etc. Can be sold to some advertising agencies. Be provident looking for any browser add-ons and do not install them, if you have not a real necessity in it.
Safe Samurai is an advertising browser add-on that installs some other dangerous objects. Is there any guarantee that the special offers are 100% true? No doubt, no. So, you should not trust the ads and its conditions. Also you should not visit the landing pages of the demonstrated pop-ups since they can be harmful and so, as a result, your PC can be infected with a dangerous virus in your system.

- Many ads shown by Safe Samurai
- Very slow performance

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
You should understand that manual removal methods that uninstall Safe Samurai from browsers are completely secure and you can perform them not being afraid that you injure your computer. I should notice that the methods are very effective, so you will succeed and the extension will be eliminated with all its manifestations. It is an easy method as well; it yields merely to the automatic way of removal. But sometimes, using this method users notice that the PUP exists again in the browser and they have to fulfill any other techniques to uninstall it.
Still the manual method that tells you to eliminate the folders and registry keys and values is the most dangerous one. If you take chances to use this removal technique, in this case you should keep in mind just one common principle: do not forget to do the backup of the registry. Also the removal should be carried out only by the user that realizes what and why he should delete.If you will delete some files or registry keys that do not belong to Safe Samurai, then your system will not start next time. Specialists will not step off and can enjoy the efficacy of the manual way of removal.
Automatic way of removal is the method when a user runs any removal program to solve the issue. The method refers to the most safe and sure. It is also the easiest one. You can just download the antivirus program that has Safe Samurai in its signatures. The described technique is more useful because you will have the antispyware and antimalware scanner that will protect the system against the future possible computer infections.
Concerning the money that users may pay for the virus removal I should say that some removal techniques are 100% free, 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 effective. The information about the effectiveness of these removal ways I describe in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’ below. Speaking about the paid methods of virus removal, I should list 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 complication 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 remove the virus like in an expensive computer repair shop.

|Computer Repair Shop||$130-$220||+++||+++||up to 4 days|
|Paid Antivirus||$35-70||+++||+++||up to 1 hour|
|$0||+/-||+/-||up to 3 hours|
|From Control Panel||$0||+/-||++||up to 1 hour|
