It’s all the same what browser extension you are going to install, it can be the weak point for your computer. BrowserSupport is not an exclusion.

But if you activate any browser add-on, then vendors are not able to be sure that your PC will not be infected. Internet swindler can use the add-on as it were a door to your PC. Of course there is a sure effort to escape from this situation: use browser add-ons from well-known and reliable software vendors only. But is not guaranteed defense from online delinquents and viruses. It is better not to have add-ons at all.
It is important to know that every installed extension has the approval to see your private information that you report when complete a form on the web.

Also you should not visit the web pages of the demonstrated pop-ups for they can be harmful and so, in its train, your computer can be infected with a true virus on your computer.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
You should realize that manual removal methods that uninstall BrowserSupport from browsers are completely safe and you can perform them not being afraid that you damage your PC. I should notice that these methods are efficient, so you will reach the aim and the browser add-on will be eliminated together will all its manifestations. It is also an easy technique; it yields merely to the automatic way of removal. But at times, using this technique users notice that the PUP returns to the browser and they have to find any other methods to uninstall it.
Also there is one more manual way of removal where you should delete files, folders and registry entries. The described way of removal is secure if you can perform it cautiously or commit it to the experienced person who knows what and why should be done. In order to make this process safer you should create the backup of the registry. Do not forget that only the enumerated elements of the software should be deleted and no one more otherwise the system will not load. If you do not know what registry entry is and where it can be found, then you should perform automatic method not to harm the computer.
Automatic way of removal is the method when a user installs any removal tool to solve the issue. This method is considered to be the most secure and sure. It is also the easiest one. You can just find the antivirus software that has BrowserSupport in its signatures. This method is more advantageous because you will have the antivirus program that will defend your computer from the future possible computer infections.

But not all of them are powerful. The information about the effectiveness of these methods I illustrate in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’, you can see it below. Speaking about the paid ways of virus removal, I should list the Computer Repair Shop Service and paid Antivirus software.
These methods are the most forceful. 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 methods are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also notice that paid antiviruses always has support service (sometimes free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.
