How to remove (uninstall) Linkonclick.com

This material is devoted to an unwanted tool called Linkonclick.com and ways to get rid of it. If you suffer from constant ads on the Internet, and the efficiency of the machine has suddenly decreased - this item will explain you what adware is, spot the basic problem and sweep the PC of malicious programs.

Linkonclick.com

There are three main kinds of advertising utilities that spread through the Web nowadays: browser toolbars, adware and browser hijackers. These programs were originally developed not to benefit users, and their target is to receive money by deceiving people. Internet-criminals try really hard to urge customers that these tools are useful: they create nice descriptions and promise great efficiency and advantage. To make it clear for you, we will describe the main features of each type of advertising tools.

  • Browser hijackers do not generate ads on extraneous sites. Hijackers, from time to time open a special webpage in your browser that redirects to one of the sites with advertising and suspicious links.
  • Usual adware is famous for the never-ending spam with various pop-ups, ads and banners. These tools might be masked almost to anything: media players, system optimizers, software for finding games and movies, driver updaters and even more. Offers which are displayed by adware are not dependable and we strongly suggest you not to click on them.
  • Browser toolbars also perform advertising functions, but less actively than other two sorts of advertising programs. Their main function is to collect information about user's search queries and visited sites that are then transmitted on to web-criminals for further research. Suchlike info might be used against the user or passed to third parties for a solid price.

All these programs in conjunction and every one of them could be applied for different sorts of Internet-cheating. These advertising utilities have one thing in common - they all call inconvenience to the customer and prevent the victim from Web-surfing. Besides the obvious inconvenience, such as abundance of advertising and links, there is another feature of Linkonclick.com and it is the abnormal lowering of machine's security.

 

So, you understand what goals are pursued by advertising programs and, it's time to learn how to find advertising program and delete it. The biggest and the most important symptom of penetration is the advertising overflow. Symptom #2 is the emergence of additional programs on your PC that you don't remember installing. Such thing may appear when victim clicks on all links that adware shows, visiting the infected websites and installing software from them. If such thing happens, you might not even notice how virus gets into the system.

The third symptom is a hard retardation of the computer, and an growth in its boot time. It should be noted that suchlike problems frequently appear for other reasons, not related to undesired software. The root for such slowdown is that unlike regular programs, Linkonclick.com must restlessly work, showing ads and redirecting victim to malicious pages. It means that adware is launching at system boot and turning off only when the computer stops working. If 3 or more such programs will get onto your PC, their simultaneous operation overburdens the system, and takes so many resources that useful utilities simply can't run. This can induce trouble shutdowns, lags and fatal errors of different services. If you see any of these attributes - you need to scan the computer via good AV tool or clean it of perilous software in manual manner.
