I've used a lot of anti-malware programs. A lot of them didn't detect anything and only 3 detected any threats, two PUPs and some cookies for the most part.

It's only shown itself on one page and one word (the website being letswatchstartrek if anyone was curious. It's not a streaming site. Just a site that reviews content). The reason why I know it's Linksicle is because I put my mouse over it, but I did not click it.

I have reset the google chome settings 2 to 3 times.

I don't see any folder for Linksicle nor do I see it when I open up the control panel. It's almost as if it isn't there.

Any help I can get would be appreciated.

if it is only on one website and one page of that website, then it will be an embedded script on that website. Nothing on your computer to find or fix
linksicle can come in 2 forms.
1. a browser addon that can inject ads into any webpage
2. embedded links on a web page that when you hover over them or click the link pop up relevant adverts. Sometimes the link is green
It sounds like you have type 2
