It’s all the same what kind of extension you want to install, it will be the vulnerability for the whole system. PricePeep is not an exception. All software vendors produce security patches and worry about the security of their users. But when you download any browser add-on, then software companies are not able to ensure that your computer will not be infected. Hackers can use the browser extension like a pass to the system. Of course there is a good effort to escape from this situation: download add-ons from popular and trustworthy vendors only. But is not an absolute guard from hackers and computer threats. It is better not to install add-ons at all.
But if you still need to have any add-on then be ready that the add-on will get approval to collect your private information that you leave on different websites and can give it to the third person. You should realize that to install a browser extension is like installing an utility. Will you install software if you did not hear about its vendor? I think, no. So, you also should be careful downloading the browser add-on that you want to install.
PricePeep is a browser extension that installs some other dangerous objects. Is there any guarantee that the special offers are 100% true? Surely, no. So, you should not believe the pop-ups and its conditions. Also you should not click the links of the shown pop-ups as they can be malicious and so, in its train, your PC can be infected with a dangerous virus in your system.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
You should know that manual removal methods that remove PricePeep from browsers are completely safe and you can perform them not being afraid that you injure your system. Also the instructions are productive, so you will succeed and the extension will be deleted together will all its manifestations. It is an easy way of removal as well; it yields solely to the automatic way of removal. But at times, using this technique users notice that the adware returns to the browser and they need to perform any other techniques to remove it.
Still manual technique that instruct you to delete the folders and registry keys and values is the most risk one. If you take chances to perform this method, then you should retain only one ordinary: do not forget to produce the backup of the registry. Also this method should be executed only by the user that knows what and why he has to remove.If you will remove several files or registry keys that do not belong to PricePeep, then the PC will not load next time.

Concerning the money that users may spend on the virus removal I should say that some methods 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 powerful. The information about the effectiveness of these removal ways I illustrate in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’ below. Speaking about the paid techniques of virus removal, I should list 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 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 mention that paid antiviruses always has support service (often for free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.
