It’s all the same what kind of extension you want to download and install, it will be the weak point for the browser. Clicon is not an exception. All browser vendors produce security patches and worry about the security of their users. But when you download any browser add-on, then software companies cannot ensure that your system will not be infected. Hackers can use the browser extension as it were a door to your computer. Surely there is a safe solution for this problem: use browser add-ons from reputed and trustworthy software vendors only. But is not an absolute guard from internet criminals and computer threats. It is far better not to install browser extensions at all.
But if you still need to download any browser extension so you should be prepared that the extension will receive approval to see your personal advertisement that you type on different web pages and can sell it to the third person. You should realize that to download a browser add-on is like installing an utility. Will you install software if its software company is unreliable? I advise you not to. So, you also should be careful downloading the extension that you want to install.
Clicon, as a browser extension, is more perilous, because you cannot be confident that the advertising notification is genuine and that the website that states in the ad is safe. If you want to have Clicon or any other browser extension that shows you special offers then you should be ready that it can deceive you.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
You should realize that manual removal methods that uninstall Clicon from browsers are completely safe and you can perform them not being afraid that you harm your PC. I should notice that these methods are efficient, so you will get the wanted result and the browser add-on will be removed with all its manifestations. It is also an easy technique; it yields merely to the automatic way of removal. But sometimes, using this way of removal users detect that the adware returns to the browser and they need to find any other techniques to delete it.
But manual technique that tells you to delete the files, folders and registry entries is the most dangerous one. If you venture to use this removal technique, in this situation you should retain only one ordinary principle: do not forget to produce the backup of the registry. Also this technique should be carried out just by the user that realizes what and why he should remove.In case you will remove several files or registry keys that do not belong to Clicon, then your computer will not start up next time. Experts will not make this mistake and can enjoy the efficacy of the manual way of removal.
Automatic method is the method when a user runs any removal utility to solve the problem. This way refers to the most secure and powerful. It is also not a difficult one. You can just download the antivirus software that has Clicon in its base of signatures. The described method is more advantageous because you will install the antivirus that will guard your PC from the future incoming threats.
Concerning the money that users may spend on the virus removal I should say that some removal techniques are 100% free of charge, for example manual removal from browsers, manual professional removal (if you will do it by yourselves), free antivirus program and the removal from Control Panel. But not all of them are effective. The information about the effectiveness of these uninstall techniques I illustrate in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’ below. Speaking about the paid techniques of virus removal, I should enumerate the Computer Repair Shop Service and paid Antivirus software.
These methods are the most forceful. 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 removal techniques are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also mention that paid antiviruses always has support service (often free) that will remove the virus like in an expensive computer repair shop.
Removal methods statistics
|Removal method||Price||Effectiveness||Safety||Needed Time|
|Computer Repair Shop||$175-$240||+++||+++||up to 4 days|
|Paid Antivirus||$25-50||+++||+++||up to 1 hour|
|$0||+/-||+/-||up to 3 hours|
|From Control Panel||$0||+/-||++||up to 1 hour|
