removal by Gabriel E. Hall - -   Also known as Fasto Player | Type: Adware

Can I trust Fasto Player?

FastoPlayer (or Fasto Player) is just another adware-type program that needs to be used with carefulness. When inside the system, it may try to interrupt you with sponsored ads that are displayed just for redirecting people to sponsored websites. Sometimes these ads look really tempting as they seem like they are trying to help you save the money. However, they can redirect you to unwanted and suspicious websites seeking to infect your computer with other PUPs and even viruses. If FastoPlayer ads have started interrupting you, it is clear that this adware has infiltrated your computer. In this case, we highly recommend thinking about its removal.

If you still don’t think that this potentially unwanted program has to be avoided, we will try to explain you what could happen after letting it stay on your system.

  • Once installed, Fasto Player is going to place its files on the Windows Registry and inject its extension to your Internet browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Internet Explorer or Safari).
  • Then it starts to track your web activity. It means that the program is going to see the list of websites that you visit, keywords that you type into the search boxes, your downloads list, and even your IP address.
  • Based on this information, adware generates various promotional content. You are going to receive ads in a form of pop-ups, in-text links, and banners.
  • It is important NOT to click on such ads – otherwise they can redirect you to suspicious websites that belong to the sponsors of this PUP.

Be very careful because some of FastoPlayer-related web pages can promote questionable content, including suspicious software that may contain some toxic components. We strongly recommend to stay away from its ads because they can lead you to dangerous websites that may even initiate automatic downloads. To avoid dealing with sad consequences, we would like to recommend using an anti-spyware program for Fasto Player removal. In this case, we suggest using Reimage Reimage Cleaner Intego.

Distribution methods of this adware

FastoPlayer has its official web page, and it provides the download link for this suspicious application. You can end up on this website if you click on suspicious links or banner ads on the web – so if you happen to visit this website, remember that it is very unreliable. However, in most cases, the developers of such PUPs spread apps like FastoPlayer virus via another distribution method called bundling. Bundling is a way to pack several programs into one software bundle – this helps to spread potentially unwanted applications seamlessly.

You have to be very careful if you want to download a free application from the Internet, and you have to install it with caution. Remember that no one is going to tell you about additional software components straightforwardly, so you have to check it yourself. To do that, you have to select “custom” or “advanced” installation settings on the installation setup. Then the setup opens a window, which should display a list of suggestions to install bonus programs. Deselect these statements and proceed to the next step of the setup. To remove FastoPlayer, look for instructions below.
