There seems to be a new type of potentially unwanted programs spreading around the web, claiming that they are created to improve your online shopping experience. LinkSwift deals is one of those programs and it is directly related to LemurLeap Virus and Browsefox browser extension that have caused quite a ruckus among computer users lately. The program is not a computer infection, and it is very likely that you have installed it yourself, but yet it is recommended to remove LinkSwift deals from your system, as the reliability and usefulness of the application are debatable.
This browser extension may arrive alone, downloaded from the official website, but it may also come bundled with freeware. For example, if you install such programs as Yontoo, or Conduit Community Toolbar, be sure to check for additional software that might get installed on your computer as well. One of these software applications could be LinkSwift deals. This add-on is compatible with Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox browsers, and once it is installed, LinkSwift deals displays various coupon deals each time you access a popular online shopping site.
Here it should be pointed out that although the official website for LinkSwift deals is available at linkswitf.co, it is not possible to download the add-on from the page at the moment. Therefore, one may question the reliability of this plugin, if even the official website returns errors each time one tries to download the installation file.
What is more, LinkSwift deals may get onto your computer even if you have no intention to install it. That is to say, users often overlook various software installation steps, especially for “light-weight” freeware applications, where they would be informed about LinkSwift deals getting installed on their PC as well.
It might be a potentially unwanted program, but LinkSwift deals is nowhere near being a dangerous computer infection. The main problem with this plugin is that it could be exploited as a tool for malware distribution, especially if malicious third parties take over the contents of pop-up ads displays by LinkSwift deals. In such a case, the ads may contain outgoing links to corrupted websites, and that would result in malware infection.
In order to avoid that, it would be for the best to remove LinkSwift deals via Control Panel. Afterwards, scan your PC with SpyHunter free scanner to determine whether you have any other potentially dangerous programs that ought to be removed. Do not hesitate to invest in a powerful computer security program if need be.
