Reasons for Linkury removal
Linkury Smartbar and other associated programs are simply worthless applications and that is the main reason why they should be uninstalled. For example, DefaultTab is usually distinguished as a potentially unwanted plugin while the Messenger smartbar is simply useless. DefaultTab when installed, is located in the top part of your browser and has ‘Search Here’ note. Clicking the icon which looks like Windows logo will enable drop-down menu. Take notice that the default search engine is mysearchresults.com which should not be trusted, although you can choose from other ones in the same menu such as Amazon, eBay, Facebook and Wikipedia.
By using Mysearchresults.com engine to seek for information you’ll find yourself surrounded by advertisements from third-party sites. Furthermore, the search results will be divided into four parts where only the middle one will be representing the actual data you were looking for, while the part on your right will show the ‘Related Searches’, whereas the bottom and top sections will simply show ads. The actual search engine is not malicious as it doesn’t install any unwanted programs, but still you’ll never know what will be waiting after clicking one of the sponsored links. That is why you should always be alert and well aware that some crooks present their fake advertisements as authentic ones. Unfortunately clicking on such link could lead to installation of a virus or other malicious program.
