OK, you've all seen the commercials.....advertised mostly late at night or early morning for Finallyfast.com.

I've read conflicting stories that this is a scam to install malware on your PC while charging something like 30 bucks to just delete your cookies. Anyone have any words of wisdom to share?

I should have checked here first. I decided to take a look at the program, and I downloaded their "free scan". That was 2 days ago, but I think I fianlly got rid of Finally Fast. I am no computer guru, but upon looking at the results, they just appeared fake. I used unintall to remove the program, but still had to manually remove folders that were "missed". I ran a scan with AVG, and found my computer was infected with a number of trojans, including the PUPER Trojan. What a surprised that they showed up immediately after using the free scan. From what I have found out, that PUPER Trojan is used by scam programs. The Finally Fast name must refer to how fast your money goes to untraceable accounts.

This is another reason I don't read any sponsored links on websites either. I always think Do I know what this program really does and Have I checked on some trustworthy forums to find out if anyone has used it. Most of the time I'm relieved to keep my nose in my own business, but still every once in awhile I get sucked into some scheme, usually when I'm tired or bored. Thanks for this thread.

I've learned blood is not thicker than money.

My father fell for that once, didn't pay any money but got the "free" thing off the web. Had to remove it with MBAM.

This would be really funny if it weren't so sad! My daughter fell for the ads too.

Life is too short to have anything but delusional notions about yourself.

Glad I checked out this forum posting, I was never going to buy it, but this is good information for when I'm asked by friends.

What great information!

I've never bought into anything like this before, mostly because the list of things they claim the software does - removes malware and spyware, fixes registry errors, etc. - I can do myself, and I know where to find help to do it if I have questions. Why pay someone to do what you can do yourself?
