What is Fast Antivirus 2009?

Fast Antivirus 2009 is a rogue anti-spyware program from the same family as Malware Catcher 2009 and Virus Sweeper. Like its predecessors, Fast Antivirus is distributed by hosting its files on the Google service called Google Code. They host their files on Google Code because it will make it harder for companies to block installations without blocking a legitimate Google site. Once installed, Fast Antivirus will create numerous fake infections on your computer that will be detected when it scans your computer. These fake infection files are actually harmless and have no way of infecting your computer because they are not valid programs that can be run. The files that are created are:


Once started, Fast Antivirus 2009 will scan your computer and then list the above files as infections. These files, though, will not be removed by the program until you purchase it. The act of creating files so that they are detected as infections is obviously a scam being used to scare you into thinking you are infected and should be ignored.

  • Fast Antivirus 2009
  • Scanning screen
  • Scan results screen
  • Fast Antivirus Installer
  • Fake Security Alert
  • Fake Firewall Alert
  • Threat Detected!
  • Unauthorized Remote Connection Alert

While the program is running you will also see a variety of nag screens and security warnings appear on your desktop. These warnings include threats of remote connections, malware running on your machine, and your computer being hacked. All of these alerts are just another method used by Fast Antivirus 2009 to convince you that you are infected so that you purchase the program. Just like the infection threats, you should ignore these warnings as well. Last but not least, while browsing the web you will also randomly be redirected to web sites rather than the ones you wished to go to.

Self Help Guide

This guide is intended for advanced computer users only. Please ensure your data is backed up before proceeding. If you’re uncomfortable making changes to your computer, consider having a professional help clean your computer or ask in the forums.
  1. Print out these instructions as we will need to close every window that is open later in the fix.

  2. At this point you should download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, or MBAM, to scan your computer for any any infections or adware that may be present. Please download Malwarebytes from the following location and save it to your desktop:

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Download Link (Download page will open in a new window)

  3. Once downloaded, close all programs and Windows on your computer, including this one.

  4. Double-click on the icon on your desktop named mbam-setup.exe. This will start the installation of MBAM onto your computer.

  5. When the installation begins, keep following the prompts in order to continue with the installation process. Do not make any changes to default settings and when the program has finished installing, make sure you leave Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware checked. Then click on the Finish button. If MalwareBytes prompts you to reboot, please do not do so.

  6. MBAM will now start and you will be at the main screen as shown below.

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

    Please click on the Scan Now button to start the scan. If there is an update available for Malwarebytes it will automatically download and install it before performing the scan.

  7. MBAM will now start scanning your computer for malware. This process can take quite a while, so we suggest you do something else and periodically check on the status of the scan to see when it is finished.

  8. When MBAM is finished scanning it will display a screen that displays any malware that it has detected. Please note that the infections found may be different than what is shown in the image below due to the guide being updated for newer versions of MBAM.

    MalwareBytes Scan Results

    You should now click on the Remove Selected button to remove all the listed malware. MBAM will now delete all of the files and registry keys and add them to the programs quarantine. When removing the files, MBAM may require a reboot in order to remove some of them. If it displays a message stating that it needs to reboot, please allow it to do so. Once your computer has rebooted, and you are logged in, please continue with the rest of the steps.

  9. You can now exit the MBAM program.

Your computer should now be free of the Fast Antivirus 2009 program. If your current anti-virus solution let this infection through, you may want to consider purchasing the PRO version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware to protect against these types of threats in the future.
