It does not matter what extension you want to download and install, it will be the weak point for the browser. steep.tv is not an exception.

But it is not 100% defense from hackers and computer threats. It is far better not to have browser extensions at all.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
You should realize that manual ways of removal that uninstall steep.tv from browsers are absolutely safe, and you can use them without being afraid that you will damage your system. I should say that the methods are very effective, so you will succeed and the browser add-on will be eliminated with all its manifestations. It is an easy method as well; it yields only to the automatic method of removal. But at times, after using this way of removal users detect that the adware returns to the browser, and they have to find other methods to delete it.
But there is one more manual removal instruction where you should delete folders and registry entries. This way of removal is not harmful if you are able to follow it cautiously, or commit it to the experienced person who knows what and why should be deleted. In order to make this process safer you should do the backup of the registry. Do not forget that only the listed parts of the program should be deleted and not one more, otherwise your system might not load. If you do not understand what registry entry is and where it can be found, then you are welcome to use automatic technique so not to break your computer.
Yet the most powerful and the most harmless way of removal is automatic. Using any antimalware software that has steep.tv in its signatures, you will remove this unwanted program promptly, and the virus will not annoy you again because the antivirus software will protect your computer in the future.
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 (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 describe in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’, you can see it below. Speaking about the paid techniques of virus removal, I should mention 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 complexity 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 say that paid antiviruses always has support service (sometimes for free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.
