FastInternet is a program that may be aggressively promoted as one that will supposedly boost system performance and speed up your ability to surf the Internet. We have found the FastInternet application, created by Dotdo, to offer various functions and improvements to your system but fail to deliver unless you purchase the application. After purchase, FastInternet may or may not deliver on its promised features. We have deemed FastInternet as a potentially unwanted application that is questionable in its actions and could lead to unwanted redirects or loading of randomized sites offering other products. Uninstalling or removing FastInternet may be a difficult task where the FastInternet program is not listed in your add-remove programs feature in Windows. Use of an antimalware application will suffice in eliminating the FastInternet application from your computer.
