It is all the same what browser extension you want to install, it will be the vulnerability for the browser. First Color is not an exception. All browser vendors release security updates and care about the security of their users. But if you activate any extension, then vendors are not able to be sure that your PC will not be infected. Online scammers can open the add-on as it were a gate to your computer. Surely there is a sure effort to escape from this situation: use browser add-ons from reputed and reliable software vendors only. But is not an absolute defense from hackers and computer threats. It is better not to have add-ons at all.
It is important to know that every installed browser add-on has already got the permission to use your sensitive data that you enter when fill in some forms on-line. The information, including your phone number, your first and second names, your email, etc. Can be passed to some advertising companies. Be prudent downloading any browser add-ons and do not download them, if there is not a real want in it.
First Color is an advertising browser add-on that adds some other dangers. Is there any guarantee that the special offers are 100% real? Surely, no. So, you should not believe the pop-ups and its coupons. Also you should not click the links of the demonstrated promotions for they can be viral and so, as a result, your system can be infected with a true virus in your system.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
Manual ways of removal that you can use to delete First Color from browsers are secure and not so complicated as you may think. Probably, only automatic instructions are easier. This removal way is very effective because the browser vendors care about your right to install or uninstall any browser add-ons. This method will give you a chance to uninstall all the undesirable browser add-ons and you will not be displayed its popping-up windows any more. But occasionally, using this way of removal users are surprised that the program returns to the browser and they need to perform any other methods to remove it.
Also there is another manual removal instruction where you should remove files and registry keys and values. The technique is secure in case if you can perform it carefully or let the experienced person follow it. In order to make this instruction more secure you should do the backup of the registry. You should keep in mind that only the itemized elements of the software should be removed and no other ones otherwise your system will not load. If you do not know what registry key is and where it should be placed, then you should use automatic technique not to damage your PC.
Automatic technique is the method when a user runs any removal utility to solve the problem. This way is considered to be the most harmless and powerful. It is also the easiest one. You can just download the antivirus software that has First Color in its base of signatures. The described removal way is more advantageous because you will install the antivirus that will guard the computer from the future computer viruses.
Concerning the sums of money that users may pay for the virus removal I should say that some removal techniques are absolutely free of charge, 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 equally effective. The information about the effectiveness of these removal ways I describe 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 program.
These methods are the most forceful. In spite of the great difference 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 removal techniques 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.
Removal methods statistics
|Removal method||Price||Effectiveness||Safety||Needed Time|
|Computer Repair Shop||$130-$230||+++||+++||up to 4 days|
|Paid Antivirus||$35-70||+++||+++||up to 1 hour|
|$0||+/-||+/-||up to 3 hours|
|From Control Panel||$0||+/-||++||up to 1 hour|
