Fastclick Problems You Might See

If you have fastclick, you may notice a number of annoying things on your  machine. One of the first things you might become aware of is the fact that your desktop has changed. You might notice new links to sites you didn't add. Many of these may be things like porn sites or gambling rooms online.

Once you open your browser, you may begin to notice more changes to your computer. First, you home page has probably changed. Instead of your default settings, you may now notice that it is fastclick.com or one of its many affiliate advertisers.

While you are browsing, you may be periodically redirected back to that page or another one of the advertiser sites. One of the most prominent things you'll notice on your machine during your sessions is pop-up advertisements for one of the many fastclick related advertisers. These can actually be quite annoying, and it doesn't matter whether you're online or not, you can get a pop-up.

One other thing you might notice on your computer is how much slower it's running. Anytime you're running lots of programs at once, your computer goes slower. It simply cannot handle too many tasks at once. When fastclick becomes a part of your system, it creates a registry key that tells it to begin as soon as you turn your computer on. That means that your machine is running fastclick and its adware buddies in the background without your knowledge. As a result, the processes get overloaded, and it simply cannot handle all of the work at once, slowing everything you do down on your machine.

Is Fastclick Dangerous?

Fastclick is a fairly low risk adware program. It does, though, have the opportunity to do much more than most users report it does, making it a bit dangerous to you and the other people who access your machine.

It has the ability to record every single move you make on your computer. It also has the ability to send all the information entered on your machine to a third party. From credit card numbers to passwords, Fastclick records what you look at, click on, and enter during any given internet browsing session.

Moreover, fastclick has some very unfriendly tactics. First, it downloads and installs itself on your system without your knowledge or permission. The chances are pretty good that you've never willingly said "Yes, I'd like fastclick to be part of my computer." Fastclick also means that you probably have other adware on your machine. Fastclick has the ability to both download and install other adware and spyware products on your machine, and if you click on any of those annoying popups or those new links on your desktop, you're probably going to end up with a much larger adware problem than you had to begin with. Fastclick also hijacks your browser. It changes your security and your personal settings, redirecting you to its own advertisers hoping that you might buy something related to their services.

Fastclick can become dangerous if it decides to start using the information it has collected about you. It could allow other serious threats to install on your machine, and it could transmit any of the personal information collected about you to another server, putting your data in other hands and you at risk of identity theft.

Where does Fastclick Come From?

Fastclick was created by the advertising network of the same name. For some time, it was one of the most popular advertising networks online, and in 2005, it was purchased by Valueclick.

Removing Fastclick

Getting rid of fastclick, like most data miners, isn't easy. You basically have three options when you get ready to take it off of your system.

First, you can delete all of the associated files and registry keys from your system. There are a couple of problems with this scenario, though. First, getting a complete list of associated files is next to impossible. A partial list follows this article.

Second, missing just one file in this process will only cause fastclick to reinstall itself on your machine, leaving you in the same place you started from. Finally, messing up your program files or making a mistake within your computer's registry is quite dangerous. You could be in a far worse situation if you make a mistake there than you were ever in while you were dealing with fastclick. Your second option is to do a system restore. This may not work for all Windows users, though, and it may not rid you of your problem.

Your final option is your best one. Use your current anti-spyware software to remove fastclick. If you don't have anti-spyware software, you should certainly look into getting some. ParetoLogic is a great choice, but if you want to look around a bit, be sure that you don't unknowingly download an adware product posing as anti-spyware. Many of these are out there, and your best bet is to choose a well-reviewed, trusted product like ParetoLogic. Once you have anti-spyware software on your machine, be sure that you update it regularly and try to scan your machine about once a week.

Fastclick is a hassle, and it has the potential to be dangerous, so removing fastclick is a good idea.
