Fast Disk is a rogue application that reports fake hard drive errors and registry errors to make you think that there are many issues with your computer. This rogue is from the same family as My Disk and Disk OK. This rogue is promoted via Trojans that trick users into installing this bogus computer optimization program. Once active, it will pretend to scan your hard drive for errors and other problems. Fast Disk will display fake error warnings and notifications to make you think that there are numerous critical errors on your computer that should be fixed as soon as possible. It will also show fake error messages when you attempt to launch other programs. The rogue program will find numerous errors, usually eleven, but will not allow you to fix these errors unless you fist purchase the rogue program. It will supposedly fix six of them but to fix remaining errors you have to install advanced module which is paid. Without a doubt, Fast Disk is a scam.
