LinkGrabber99 falsely posits itself as an aid to your web browsing. Not only is it a hindrance to easy web surfing, it can actually endanger your computer!
The program presents itself as something that can help improve functionality on your Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator web browser. In actuality, it is just an aid for people who want to deliver pop-up ads for their profit and your inconvenience.
Browser Helper Objects (BHOs) can also give malicious programs and individuals a door to your system that they might not otherwise have.
LinkGrabber99 has been reported as associated with iTimeSquare and Netjumper.com.
