Nav-Links is an advertising platform, which can also be called an adware or browser hijacker. That’s because this application infiltrates computers without user’s knowledge. In addition, it hijacks web browsers and starts showing its pop-up advertisements every time when a new browsing session begins. While in most of occasions it shows up when browsing with Mozilla Firefox web browser, it may also affect Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari web browsers. Technically, Nav-Links is not a virus because it has no malicious code inside. However, it is called ‘a potentially unwanted application’ because it interrupts users with the ads and also redirects them to predetermined websites. If you want to get rid of these things, you are recommended to remove Nav-Links virus from your computer.

HOW Nav-Links CAN GET INSIDE MY COMPUTER?

Nav-Links can be downloaded intentionally as a ‘useful tool’. However, in most of occasions it comes on computer without asking user’s permission. For that, it relies on freeware and shareware, which is always filled with various components. We don’t recommend using such programs or, if you really need one, monitoring installation process and getting rid of every unknown component. Once it enters its target PC, Nav-Links installs itself on almost every web browser and starts its annoying activity. Remember, adware programs may initiate unsafe activities, such as browser's redirections to insecure websites, and may start tracking users or try to steal their personal information. If you want to prevent that, you should remove Nav-Links.

I found the easiest way to remove the nav-links crap. If you use Windows just go to their site and download the "fix-it" guy for IE. Takes almost a second to work. Killed it in everything for me.
