A-fast Antivirus.

A-Fast Antivirus is a rogue anti-spyware program that uses misleading methods to scare users into thinking that their computers are infected with malware.
This scareware is promoted through the use of Trojans and various malicious websites such as fake online scanners. Once installed, A-Fast Antivirus will simulate a system scan and report numerous infections. Then it will prompt you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the infections which don't even exist. Furthermore, A-Fast Antivirus will display fake security alerts and pop-ups from Windows task bar stating that your computer is not protected or under attack from a remote computer.

The rogue program also blocks legitimate anti-malware programs and system tools such as task manager stating that it's infected. A-Fast Antivirus is a scam. Don't buy this bogus program. Instead, please use the removal instructions below to remove A-Fast Antivirus from your computer as soon as possible.


Kill malicious Processes from Task Manager: 
  • A-Fast.exe
 Location of the infection:
  1. C:\Program Files\A-fast\
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER-Software-A-fast
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER-Software-Microsoft-Windows-CurrentVersion-Policies-System "DisableTaskMgr" = "1"
  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER-Software-Microsoft-Windows-CurrentVersion-Run "fast"
Although it is possible to manually remove A-fast Antivirus, such activity can permanently damage your system if any mistakes are made in the process, as advanced spyware parasites are able to automatically repair themselves if not completely removed. Thus, manual spyware removal is recommended for experienced users only, such as IT specialists or highly qualified system administrators. For other users, we recommend  malware and spyware removal applications.

After removing all these files, restart your computer and the issue will be fixed. And don’t forget to do update your Security Software, check the Firewall Settings and the Operating System and finally do a full system scan with the Security Software.
