No matter what browser extension you are going to download, it can be the security vulnerability for the whole system. Dollar Keeper is not an exception. All browser vendors release security updates and bother about the security of their users. But if you install any extension, then software companies cannot be sure that your PC will not be infected. Hackers can use the add-on like a gate to your PC. Surely there is a good way out from this situation: install browser add-ons from popular and trustworthy software vendors only. But is not 100% protection from hackers and viruses. It is better not to download browser extensions at all.
But if you still want to download one or another browser extension then be ready that this extension will have permission to see your personal advertisement that you enter on different web pages and can pass it to the third companies. You should understand that to install a browser extension is like downloading a program. Will you download software if you did not hear about its producer? I suggest you not to. So, you also should be careful downloading the extension that you are eager to install.
Dollar Keeper is a promotional add-on that adds some other dangers. Is there any warranty that the special offers are 100% genuine? Of course, no. So, you should not trust the popping-up windows and its promises. Also you should not click the links of the demonstrated pop-ups because they can be harmful and so, as a result, you will get a real computer threat in your system.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
Manual removal techniques that you can use to uninstall Dollar Keeper from browsers are not dangerous and not so hard as you might think. Possibly, only automatic way of removal is easier. This removal way is very effective because the browser creators care about your right to install or uninstall any extensions. This method will let you to delete all the undesirable browser add-ons and you will not be shown its popping-up windows any more. But occasionally, using this technique users detect that the adware exists again in the browser and they need to perform any other methods to uninstall it.
Nevertheless manual technique that tells you to remove the folders and registry keys and values is the most destructive one. If you take chances to follow this way of removal, in this case you should remember just one common rule: do not forget to produce the backup of the registry. Also this method should be executed only by the user that realizes what and why he has to remove.If you will eliminate some files or registry keys and values that do not belong to Dollar Keeper, then your computer will not load next time. Specialists will not make this mistake and can be delighted with the force of this manual technique.
Automatic method is the method when a user installs any removal utility to solve the problem. This method is the most secure and effective. It is also not a difficult one. You should just install the antimalware scanner that has Dollar Keeper in its signatures. The described technique is more advantageous because you will install the antivirus program that will protect your system against the future computer viruses.
Concerning the 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 (if you will do it by yourselves), free antivirus software and the removal from Control Panel. But not all of them are equally effective. The information about the effectiveness of these methods I illustrate 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 inequality 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 removal ways are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also mention that paid antiviruses always has support service (often for free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.
