Linknotification.com is not a reliable page. In fact, it is a clear sign of issues. If you see this site every time you go online, we are sorry to inform you that your machine is no longer infection-free. There is a nasty adware lurking somewhere in the corners of your PC and it is the one, forcing the Linknotification.com site to appear non-stop. Take immediate measures. Adware pests do not make for pleasant companions.
Do not expect the threat you are stuck with to be any different. It won`t. Find where it is hiding and delete it as soon as possible. If you let it stay and operate freely, sooner or later it will get out of control and then your situation will worsen. Do not hesitate. The adware is still a parasite and there is no place for it in your system. Do yourself a favor and delete it. Your future self will be grateful.
The adware makes a complete mess of your online activities. All of a sudden, the Linknotification.com page becomes your online shadow and you see it at every turn. You even get redirected to it whenever you try to search for something online. Of course, this page is not the only one you are forced to visit. There are many others. The adware makes sure you land on as many shady sites as possible. This way, it generates revenue for it owners because the sites you land on are sponsored. The crooks behind the adware are using it to earn pay-per-click revenue. Every time you click on something generated by the pest, they get paid. You become their sponsor. Sadly, this is not all.
With the adware on board, you cannot surf the web at peace. You are constantly a single click away from malware. Nothing you see on your screen is verified. There are numerous infected pages and malicious ads and if you click on them, you worsen your predicament. Every single page that you load is heavy on commercials in all shapes and forms. No matter what you do, these ads don’t go away. They even grow in numbers and become more and more intrusive as time passes.
This is how the adware ruins your browsing experience. It turns it into a nightmare. The longer it stays, the more intrusions you face. Why keep it? Why risk your security when you can delete the pest and get your online activities back to normal? All you have to do is follow our removal guide at the end of this article and delete the pest. If you prefer automatic solutions, you can always use a reliable anti-malware program to help you. Choose your method and act. The sooner you get rid of the infection, the better. Delays lead to irreversible damage.
How did the adware enter? Even though it seemed like it appears out of the blue, it didn’t. It was installed. As s program, the pest cannot get in without your approval, hence, it asks for it. Of course, it doesn’t ask openly but it turns to trickery and deceit. For example, the pest pretends to be a program update in order to dupe you. If you fall into that trap and let it in, there it is.
You install the parasite yourself. In order to prevent this from happening, you need to pay more attention to what you say “yes” to. Always read the Terms and Conditions carefully before accepting them. If you spot anything out of the ordinary, abort the installation ASAP. Infections pray for victims` carelessness. Do not grant yours. Be vigilant and protect your PC.
