Linksicle ads

Whenever you install a new application on your computer, stop and think whether you really need, or you are just installing it automatically. For example, such application like Linksicle is barely necessary and yet it has been installed by quite a few users on their computers. The official website for Linksicle at linksicle.com claims that this browser extension allows you to connect to relevant information faster than before. However, the truth is that it is nothing else, but an adware application responsible for displaying vast amounts of Linksicle ads whenever you access the Internet. Hence, it is necessary to remove Linksicle ads from your computer as to prevent possible malware infections.

That is right – Linksicle ads is not a manifestation of a serious malware infection. As it has been mentioned above, it is simply an adware application. What is more, Linksicle does not enter your system surreptitiously. It is either downloaded from the official website on its own, or comes bundled with freeware as you download various applications from third party websites.

At first glance it may seem that this browser extension is fairly useful. If you read something online that Linksicle extension is enable, once you highlight a word in a web text, a pop-up window appears displaying additional information related to the word. There is also an online translator function that allows you to translate any text you highlight. It should be pointed out that Linksicle ads makes use of Bing Translator in this case, as it does not have an individual translation service.

However, the disadvantages outweigh the advantages of Linksicle ads. Pop-up advertisements that pop up on Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Internet Explorer can seriously slow down your browser and then even expose you to potentially dangerous content. That is not to say that Linksicle ads does it intentionally. The application simply taps into third party advertising network for its pop-up ads supply, so any third party can embed its own content into these ads, even if the content in question is highly questionable.

Hence, the best option in this situation is to remove Linksicle ads and all the similar extensions from your computer right now. Check out our instructions below for manual Linksicle ads removal.
