About this infection in short

Search.linkeymac.com is a hijacker thought to be a pretty minor threat. Reroute viruses are commonly not voluntarily installed by users, they may even be oblivious to the contamination. Hijackers travel via free software, and this is referred to as bundling. It will not directly endanger your operating system as it is not believed to be malware. It will, however, be able to cause redirects to sponsored websites. Hijackers don’t check the pages so you can be redirected to one that would allow malicious software to infect your computer. We do not advise keeping it as it is rather impractical to you. Abolish Search.linkeymac.com for everything to go back to normal. linkeymac.png
