Adware.LinkSwift

Adware.LinkSwift Description

Adware.LinkSwift is an adware application that is known for displaying several coupon and online shopping deals. The Adware.LinkSwift ads will display at random sometimes offering outrageous deals. When clicked on, many of the Adware.LinkSwift ads will redirect users to unwanted sites or ones attempting to make other offers on shopping sites. Some of the Adware.LinkSwift ad links are viewed as being sponsored by other well-known sites like Google, Facebook and amazon. Removal of Adware.LinkSwift is an essential step to putting a stop to annoying ads and popups that may be displayed on a system infected with adware.
