It’s all the same what extension you are going to install, it will be the weak point for the whole system. CrossBrowser is not an exception. All software vendors produce security patches and worry about the security of their users. But when you activate any browser add-on, then software companies are not able to guarantee that your system will not be infected. Online scammers can open the add-on like a gate to the PC. Of course there is a good effort to escape from this situation: download extensions from popular and reliable software vendors only. But is not 100% protection from internet criminals and software infections. I advise not to download browser extensions at all.
You should know that any installed browser add-on has already got the approval to collect your sensitive data that you enter when complete a form on-line. The reports, including your telephone number, your first and second names, number of your credit card, etc. Can be sold to some advertising companies. Be careful installing and using any browser add-ons and do not install them, if you have not a true want in it.
CrossBrowser is a promotional add-on that brings trouble. Is there any guarantee that the special offers are 100% real? Certainly, no. So, you should not believe the ads and its promises. Also you should not click the links of the displayed promotions for they can be harmful and so, as consequence, you can get a true computer threat on your PC.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
Manual ways of removal that you can use to remove CrossBrowser from browsers are secure and not so complicated as you might think. Perhaps, only automatic instructions are easier. These instructions are very powerful as the browser vendors worry about your right to download and delete any extensions. The method will let you to remove all the undesirable browser add-ons and pop-ups will not exasperate you any more. But occasionally, using this way of removal users notice that the program returns to the browser and they have to fulfill any other methods to delete it.
Of course there is another manual way of removal following which you should remove folders and registry entries. The method is not harmful if you will perform it gingerly or let the experienced person follow it. To make this instruction safer you should create the backup of the registry. Do not forget that only the enumerated parts of the software should be enumerated and no other ones otherwise your system will not load. If you do not understand what registry key is and where it should be placed, then you should follow automatic technique not to break your computer.
Automatic way of removal is the method when a user runs any removal utility to solve the problem. This way out is the most safe and effective. It is also not a difficult one. You can just find the antivirus program that has CrossBrowser in its base of signatures. This removal way is more useful because you will install the antivirus that will guard the PC against the future possible computer infections.
Concerning the sums of money that users may spend on the removal of the virus I should say that some methods are absolutely free, for example manual removal from browsers, manual professional removal (in the case 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 removal ways I illustrate in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’ 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 efficient. In spite of the great inequality 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 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 solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.
