    Uninstall Nav-links
    Hello,

    I am desperate to get rid of Nav-Links Virus, that I have everywhere in my screen ... I have a MacBookAir and many antivirus programmes are not for Mac.

    Besides, I have CleanMyMac... useless!

    So grateful if somebody can help me!
    Thanks and good night in Barcelona!

    Specs:
    Imac 27" Retina 5K, 512GB flash memory, 3.3GHz, 16GB memory, macOS Sierra beta.
    G'day and welcome to the forums.

    Well not a virus, but a malware. Ghostery will take care of these nasties picked up at nasty web sites. Why run AV that are not for Mac ~ you are asking for problems. And add CleanMyMac and Mackeeper crapware to that also.

    For maintenance use the free Onyx.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Inasmuch as Nav-Links is not a virus, I'm unsurprised to hear that anti-"virus" programs don't help with it. See if Ghostery fixes the issue.

    A quick Google search on 'mac Nav-Links' says it likely due to a browser extension that needs to be disabled or deleted. All one has to do is figure out which one(s) it seems.

    Possibly the opt-out would work????:
    Nav-Links - Help

    Or otherwise maybe use the browsers 'reset' option and reboot.
