Does anyone know about this website

Does anyone know about this website: http://lessaccounting.dealking.biz/   ? I found in my Chrome Ap Launcher and don't know how it got there.

Firm selling accounting software remove it from your launcher if you can.

If this is on a PC scan it with some of these free software.

That domain is up for sale. The Home page has a big "Click Here" and hovering the cursor over it shows a very long and suspicious URL redirection. It is likely that there is at the very least click-fraud involved here, and at the worst a redirection to a landing page containing an explot kit all ready to infect an unsuspecting system.

You most certainly do not want to have links to that website in your Chrome App Launcher.

I would follow Peacekeepr's advice and run a couple of anti-adware and anti-spyware programs to get rid of this and any other unwanted items. Alternatively you could run Chrome's own cleanup program (see below), although if you're not careful it will purge all your Chrome extensions and settings in the final cleanup stage (it's easy enough to prevent that, just be alert).
