If you are not able to imagine your browser without add-ons, then I can advise you to install browser programs from dependable software vendors only, possibly it will promote you to defend your system. But you should understand that it is better not to have any extensions at all.

Also you should not visit the websites of the shown ads for they can be malicious and so, as consequence, you can get a true viral program on your PC.

This removal way is very efficacious for the browser creators care about your right to install or uninstall any extensions. The removal technique will give you a chance to delete all the unwanted browser add-ons and ads will not exasperate you any more. But occasionally, using this way of removal users notice that the PUP is installed again in the browser and they have to find any other methods to delete it.
Of course there is another manual removal method where you should delete files, folders and registry entries. The described method is safe in situation if you can execute it carefully or commit it to the experienced person who knows what and why should be done.

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 methods of virus removal, I should list the Computer Repair Shop Service and paid Antivirus software.
These methods are the most effective. 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 removal ways are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also say that paid antiviruses always has support service (sometimes free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.
