LinkSicle is another program, which deserves to be included to 'adware' and a 'potentially unwanted program' categories. That's because this browser add-on can easily infiltrate your computer without any permission asked and then may cause various suspicious and unwanted activities. After entering the system as an optional component of other programs (download managers, PDF creators, video streaming software, etc.), it may immediately alter the settings of each of your web browsers. While it can hardly alter your start page or the default search engine, it may be the cause unknown browser add-ons appearing on your web browser. After making that, LinkSicle adware starts its annoying activity on all web browsers that are installed on computer. Typically, it shows different kinds of ads, in-text links, banner ads and similar content. Remember that these ads may look like harmless notifications that are seeking to warn you about discounts, coupons and similar things. However, all what they need to do is to trick PC users into visiting questionable websites and helping them to increase their page rank or sales.
Beware that this program is not as useful as it looks from the first sight. No matter that it claims that it is capable of improving people's browsing on Internet and making their text translation tasks faster and easier, LinkSicle may fail to do that. In fact, we haven't managed to find a person who has saved the money with a help of this application. If continuous pop-up notifications from LinkSicle adware have been following you, you should also know that this app may track your browsing on the Internet and may collect your search terms, mostly visited websites, data that you enter when visiting these sites, etc. Please, be very careful with this and similar browser add-ons! If you want to get rid of commercial notifications from LinkSicle, you should check your computer with the reputable anti-spyware and get rid of suspicious files. You can do that with a help of SpyHunter (compatible with Windows OS), Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus (compatible with Mac OS X and Windows OS) or other reputable anti-spyware.
In most of occasions, LinkSicle shows up on computer out of nowhere. That's because it relies on a specific distribution method, which is called 'bundling'. If you want to avoid its infiltration, be very careful with such free programs and their installation. You should always choose 'Custom' or 'Advanced' installation method when downloading them on your computer and uncheck those checkboxes that agree with additional downloads like this one.
