Nav-Links | Type: Adware

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.


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.


When trying to remove Nav-Links virus, you should firstly uninstall it via Add/Remove Programs. For that follow these steps:

what about firefox ?
my email: [email protected]
I cant thank you enough. This program has been annoying me for months and I was very frustrated on what it is and how to remove it. I pity people that still have this program downloaded. I was seriously considering resetting my computer back to factory mode. Katersenays step of:
settings>show advanced settings...> Reset browser settings fixes it for crome completly.
Restore browser settings to their original defaults.
In Settings>Show advanced settings...>Reset browser settings.
For Google Chrome.
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.
