ScreenshotA-Fast Antivirus (or AFastAntivirus) is a rogue anti-virus program that scares users into thinking their computers are infected. A-Fast Antivirus is promoted through the use of Trojans and fake online scanners. A-Fast Antivirus simulates a system scan and falsely reports infections on the system. AFastAntivirus then prompts you to pay for a full version of the program to remove the alleged infections. A-Fast Antivirus is a blatant scam and should be removed from the system immediately.
