I recently had a rash of viral add ware and was not surprised to find nav links as the culprit. nav links places underlined words on the web pages you visit and then those underlined words become adds. They have an opt out button but lol that does nothing.
So after an extensive search I found the culprit. Apparently in add and remove programs there was a few programs I never heard of. I researched each and found them to be something I never installed. This did nothing except to speed my pc a bit. So i went in firefox and I found one extension. The wedownload manager. I removed and and poof! Nav links died. For all those that Have the same problem I would be happy to help. As computer users and hubbers, we all have problems like this from time to time. Any thought?
