It’s all the same what add-on you are going to download and install, it will be the weak point for the browser. Product Promoter is not an exclusion. All software vendors release security updates and bother about the security of their users. But if you activate any extension, then software companies are not able to ensure that your computer will not be infected. Internet swindler can use the add-on like a pass to the computer. Surely there is a good effort to escape from this situation: download browser add-ons from well-known and dependable software vendors only. But is not guaranteed guard from internet criminals and software infections. I advise not to download browser extensions at all.
You should be aware that any installed extension has already got the permission to see your private information that you impart when fill in some forms on the web. The data, including your telephone number, your name, electronic mail address, etc. Can be passed to some advertising companies. Be provident looking for any extensions and do not download them, if you have not a real need in it.

So, you should not believe the ads and its conditions. Also you should not visit the websites of the displayed ads for they can be malicious and so, as a result, your PC will be infected with a dangerous computer threat in your system.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
You should understand that manual ways of removal that remove Product Promoter from browsers are 100% secure and you can execute them not being afraid that you injure your computer. I should notice that these methods are productive, so you will succeed and the extension will be deleted with all its manifestations. It is an easy way of removal as well; it yields merely to the automatic way of removal. But at times, using this method users detect that the adware returns to the browser and they need to fulfill any other techniques to remove it.
Nevertheless removal way that give instructions to eliminate some files and registry items is the most risk one. If you risk to use this method, then you should bear in mind only one simple: do not forget to create the backup of the registry. Also this method should be executed only by the user that realizes what and why he should delete.In case you will remove several files or registry keys and values that do not belong to Product Promoter, then your computer will not load next time. Experienced users will not step off and can be delighted with the efficacy of this manual method.
However the most effective and the safest method is automatic. Downloading any antivirus program that has Product Promoter in its base of viruses, you will remove this undesired program faster and the add-on will not irritate you again as the antivirus will defend your PC in the future.
Concerning the 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 (if you will do it by yourselves), free antivirus software and the removal from Control Panel. But not all of them are effective. The information about the effectiveness of these methods I describe in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’ below. Speaking about the paid techniques 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 distinction 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 methods are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also mention that paid antiviruses always has support service (sometimes free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.

|$0||+/-||+/-||up to 3 hours|
|From Control Panel||$0||+/-||++||up to 1 hour|

If you downloaded any functional software for your work, but Spyhunter reveals it as the malicious program, but you are perfectly positive that this utility cannot be a virus, so you can add it to Exclusions and Spyhunter will not uninstall it and never will detect it as a virus again. If you need to scan just separate file, so you can use Custom Scan feature. You can also use Process Guard or Registry Guard of this program for your accommodation.
I also want to provide you with some useful things that will protect your laptop from Product Promoter and other computer threats in the future:
- Do not download any free software from unknown creators. If you do not want to pay for applications, then you should be very attentive during the installation of the software. You should not miss the checkbox (usually small letters somewhere in the corner) that is responsible for the installation of any other software. You should uncheck this checkbox.
- Do not visit any malicious websites (porn, for adults, websites of unknown free software), they usually contain some worms or other types of viruses.
- Do not use torrents or other sharing web services, because you can download exe file instead of the needed file.
- Do not open email attachment from unknown persons. It can be malicious.
- Install any antivirus software and scan your computer at least once a week.
