How to remove FastFreeConverter (Virus Removal Guide)

FastFreeConverter virus

FastFreeConverter is promoted as a freeware item used to convert media files on a Windows Operating System. However, many internet security analysts and vendors have suggested that this item is primarily used to gather user information and display advertisements; therefor it seems fitting that this program is detected as adware and a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) by most reputable Anti-Malware vendors.

Once potential FastFreeConverter malware is installed a user may notice pop-up advertisements while browsing the web. These advertisements come in a variety of styles, but what is most unsettling is the fact that they target internet users by accessing and collecting user browsing data, such as a user’s complete browsing activities, bookmarks, and history. The collected information can then be used by the adware publisher for any purpose aside from targeted ads that display across multiple internet browsers. In some scenarios the collected user browsing data is shared with third-party contractors, marketing lists, and more.

If you have found potential FastFreeConverter malware installed on your computer it is highly likely that other programs are also installed and will also need to be removed to take care of this problem or other issues that may arise. This includes suspicious browser attachments; add-ons and extensions that attach to a host of internet browsers. Furthermore, browser add-ons and extensions usually have permissions preset allowing them to perform tasks that may invade the privacy of computer and internet users as well as use resources to slow the performance of a computer and interrupt internet speeds.
