The cause of unwanted link.in-get.com popups on your screen is adware (also known as ad-supported software). Technically, the ad supported software, that displays link.in-get.com advertising or redirects on this unwanted web-site, is not a virus. This software is created to make a money. Once started, the adware injects a java scripts within the content of pages that you visit. These js-scripts may pop-up a new web-browser window with link.in-get.com web-site or insert a a large number of advertisements directly into the pages you’re viewing.
Most often, the ad supported software affects the most common browsers such as the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Edge. But such the dangerous software as well may infect another web-browsers by changing its shortcuts (adding an argument such as ‘http://site.address’ into Target field of a browser’s shortcut). So every time you launch the internet browser, it will reroute to the annoying link.in-get.com site. Even if you setup a new home page, an unwanted web page will be the first thing you see when you start the Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Microsoft Edge.
The adware is not a virus, but the virus behaves similarly. As a rootkit hides in the system, modifies web-browser settings and blocks them from changing. Also the ad supported software can install additional web-browser extensions, addons and modules that will inject advertising links within the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer and Edge’s screen. Moreover, the adware may install a browser hijacker that once started, will modify the internet browser’s homepage and search engine. And finally, the ad supported software can collect a wide variety of personal information such as what web-sites you are opening, what you are looking for the Web and so on. This information, in the future, may be transferred to third parties.
We recommend to get rid of the adware, which redirects your browser on the link.in-get.com annoying web-page, as soon as you found this problem, as it can direct you to web-resources which may load other malicious software on your personal computer.
