But like all free browser add-ons it has some inconveniences, for example, the program was installed on your computer without your participation, also you will see numerous ads and pop-ups in your browsers (Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc.).

It’s all the same what kind of add-on you are going to install, it will be the security vulnerability for the whole system. Sailthru is not an exclusion. All software vendors produce security patches and care about the security of their users. But when you download any browser add-on, then software companies are not able to guarantee that your PC will not be infected. Online scammers can open the browser extension like a door to the computer. Certainly there is a good effort to escape from this situation: download browser add-ons from popular and reliable software vendors only. But is not an absolute protection from internet criminals and viruses. It is far better not to have browser extensions at all.
It is important to know that every installed browser add-on has already got the allowance to use your sensitive data that you impart when complete a form on-line. These reports, including your phone number, your first and second names, number of your credit card, etc. Can be passed to some public relations. Be careful using any browser add-ons and do not download them, if there is not a genuine want in it.
Sailthru is a promotional add-on that installs some other dangerous objects. Is there any guarantee that the advertising information is 100% true? Surely, no. So, you should not believe the ads and its conditions. Also you should not click the links of the shown ads because they can be malicious and so, as a result, you can get a real virus in your system.

Manual and Automatic Removal Methods?
Manual ways of removal that you can perform to uninstall Sailthru from browsers are safe and not so hard as you may think. Probably, only automatic instructions are easier. This method is very effective because the browser creators worry about your right to add or remove any browser add-ons. The way of removal will give you a chance to delete all the undesired browser add-ons and you will not be displayed its popping-up windows any more. But at times, using this way of removal users are surprised that the PUP returns to the browser and they need to find any other techniques to uninstall it.
But there is another manual removal instruction where you should delete files, folders and registry entries. The technique 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. To make this method more secure you should create the backup of the registry. Do not forget that only the itemized elements of the extension should be removed and no one more differently your system will not load. If you do not know what registry entry is and where it should be, then you are welcome to follow automatic technique not to break the computer.
Yet the most effective and the most harmless instructions are automatic. Installing any antimalware software that includes Sailthru in its signatures, you will delete the undesired program more quick and the virus will not annoy you any more because the antivirus software will protect your PC for the future.
Concerning the sums of money that users may pay for 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 mention the Computer Repair Shop Service and paid Antivirus program.
These methods are the most efficient. In spite of the great distinction in the price (Repair Shop service depends on the complexity of the issue 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 notice that paid antiviruses always has support service (sometimes free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.

|Computer Repair Shop||$175-$250||+++||+++||up to 4 days|
