Publisher description for LinkScanner

LinkScanner program icon

LinkScanner is an antivirus program that will check every link you visit. This program works in two ways: it installs a program onto your computer that you can invoke to scan for links with malicious content, and it installs an add-on into your Internet Explorer or Firefox browsers. The stand-alone program will scan the AVG server for updates. It will also allow you to manually enter a URL that you want the program to check before visiting its site. If LinkScanner does not find anything dangerous, it will tell you about that, and will provide a link to visit the scanned site. Otherwise, it will warn you not to visit that site. The browser add-on will check every site listed after a search in any search engine. It will mark good sites with a green star with a white check sign. You can visit those sites without any risk. For the sites marked with other signs, refer to the program??s guidelines. Through the settings you can customize the program??s appearance, language, warnings and connection parameters. The installer will download files from AVG. You will need 102.1 Mb. of disk space to save them.
