How to remove FastAgain PC Booster (Virus Removal Guide)

FastAgain PC Booster (Activeris) is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) and malware found in the scareware category that many computer owners have found installed without their consent. FastAgain PC Booster is essentially a non-beneficial Windows Optimizer program that utilizes aggressive and misleading marketing tactics in order to create customers.

Once installed, FastAgain PC Booster will begin to scan a computer for system related errors, COM and ActiveX errors, user related errors, and start-up errors. Once complete the scan results will state that hundreds of total registry errors are found. In order to fix the allegedly detected problems a computer user must register the software and purchase a license key.

The scan results can be found as misleading and are designed to collect manually submitted user information, such as full names, email addresses, and more, and are also used to create customers. *Manually submitting information such as your email address can result in unwanted email messages from Activeris and third-parties.

If FastAgain software is installed, it is likely that third-party malware and PUPs are also present on the affected computer system, including adware and spyware such as Cinema Plus used to collect sensitive data and display targeted advertisements across multiple internet browsers.
