LinkSafeness

LinkSafeness is the latest in fake security tools, disguised as a legitimate antispyware application, this dubious application will only cause damage to any system it has infiltrated.

LinkSafeness hails from the same rogueware family as WiniSoft.

LinkSafeness is sneaky, and may hide itself within registry files on an infected system; therefore there are a few sure ways to tell whether your system may be in jeopardy of infection.

In order to protect your system against the threat of LinkSafeness, there are 4 main rules you should always adhere to:

• Rule 1:
Keep your Windows up to date. (Tip: Regularly visit Windows Update and set your PC to receive security and critical updates automatically)

• Rule 2:
Download and install a reliable anti-spyware program, one that will recognise the current form of LinkSafeness, as well as other forms of spyware.

• Rule 3:
Install a firewall onto your system, and keep it turned on. A firewall is essential for complete protection for your system.

• Rule 4:
Keep the definitions in your anti-spyware up to date at all times.

One will need to remove LinkSafeness from the infected computer system, as soon as it has been detected. The thing about LinkSafeness, and many rogue anti-virus applications, is that fact that it is extremely difficult to delete from an infected system.

All in all though, I would recommend that one should make use of a reliable and legitimate, fully functional, up-to-date anti-spyware application, to remove LinkSafeness and all its components from the infected computer system.
