Is dangerous?

Every user should understand that all the browser add-ons including, no matter if they are helpful, are the vulnerabilities for a browser where they are installed. The browser vendors release regular updates, due to which the browser safety is absolute. The existence of any browser add-on can make the effort to defend the security of the browser impossible. And, consequently, some internet criminals are able to use your PC or collect your private information. If you cannot fancy your computer without add-ons, then I can advise you to install add-ons from reliable vendors only, possibly it will assist you to keep your system safe. But you should know that it is better not to install any extensions at all.

But if you still need to have any add-on so you should be prepared that the extension will get approval to collect your personal advertisement that you enter on different web pages and can pass it to the third companies. You should know that to download a browser add-on is like installing software. Will you install an utility if you do not know its vendor? I recommend you not to. So, you also should be careful downloading the extension that you are going to install. is a promotional add-on that brings trouble. Is there any warranty that the special offers are 100% genuine? Surely, no. So, you should not believe the pop-ups and its conditions. Also you should not visit the landing pages of the shown ads because they can be harmful and so, as a result, you can get a true virus in your system. Activity Statistics

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?

Manual ways of removal that you can perform to uninstall from browsers are safe and not so difficult as you may think. Perhaps, only automatic way of removal is easier. This removal way is very effective because the browser creators care about your right to add or remove any extensions. This way of removal will give you a chance to remove all the undesired browser add-ons and you will not be displayed its advertisements any more. But sometimes, using this way of removal users are surprised that the program is installed again in the browser and they have to perform any other techniques to remove it.

Also there is one more manual removal instruction using which you should remove folders and registry entries. This method is secure in case if you can execute it carefully or commit it to the experienced person who knows what and why should be removed. In order to make this process safer you should create the backup of the registry. You should keep in mind that only the enumerated elements of the program should be enumerated and no one more differently your computer will not work. If you do not realize what registry entry is and where it can be placed, then you should perform automatic technique in order not to damage your PC.

Yet the most powerful and the safest way of removal is automatic. Installing any antivirus program that includes in its signature base, you will uninstall this unwanted software more quick and it will not annoy you any more as the antivirus software will defend your PC in future.

Concerning the sums of money that users may spend on the virus removal I should say that some methods are 100% 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 methods I describe in the table that is called ‘Removal methods statistics’, you can see it 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 complication of the issue 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 (sometimes for free) that will remove the virus like in an expensive computer repair shop.

Paid Antivirus $40-80 +++ +++ up to 1 hour
