It does not matter what kind of browser extension you want to download, it will be the vulnerability for your computer. Safesoft Protector is not an exclusion. All software vendors produce security patches and bother about the safety of their users. But if you download any browser add-on, then vendors are not able to be sure that your computer will not be infected. Online scammers can open the browser extension like a door to your PC. Surely there is a good way out from this situation: use add-ons from popular and reliable vendors only. But is not guaranteed protection from online delinquents and software infections. I advise not to download browser extensions at all.
But if you still are eager to download one or another browser extension then be ready that this program will get permission to see your personal advertisement that you type on diverse web pages and can give it to the third person. You should know that to download a browser add-on is the same case that toinstall an utility. Will you download an utility if its software company is untrustworthy? I think, no. So, you also should think about the browser add-on that you want to install.
Safesoft Protector, as a promotional extension, is more harmful, because there is no confidence that the promotional message is real and that the website that states in the ad is secure. If you want to have Safesoft Protector or any other add-on that shows you special offers then be ready that it can swindle you.

This method is very efficacious as the browser vendors worry about your right to download and delete any browser add-ons. The way of removal will let you to remove all the undesirable browser add-ons and you will not see its advertisements any more. But occasionally, using this method users notice that the adware returns to the browser and they need to fulfill any other techniques to uninstall it.

If you venture to follow this removal technique, in this case you should retain just one common rule: do not forget to produce the backup of the registry.

But not all of them are equally 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 program.
These methods are the most effective. 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 ways are almost equal in the effectiveness and in the results. I should also notice that paid antiviruses always has support service (often free) that will solve your problem like in an expensive computer repair shop.
