Finallyfast.com Removal | Ascentive PC Speed Scan Pro



Oh I cringe at those commercials. You know the ones I’m talking about where everyone is whining about how slow their pc is. Wah…. “Mom this game is so slow.” I just LOVE how they mention that their parent company ascentive has been featured in several major publications. (Osama Bin Laden has been featured in many publications too, that isn’t exactly an endorsement.) Well, last night I thought I’d go and look and see what people were saying about this magical mystical piece of software and I wasn’t really surprised to find them being roasted right and left.

McAfee Site Advisor has apparently recently moved the site from the bad guy to the good guy column and is catching all sorts of heat from visitors for that. Many claim that there are browser exploits being served up from their pages. It was on Spyware Warriors list of rogue applications although it has been removed. (Users may note that the removal from the list isn’t equal to an endorsement either.)

The kicker…


Instructions on removing Ascentive PC Speed Scan Pro. It feels so much like our other rogues. Many users report performance problems after installing it and difficulty getting rid of it the way you would normally uninstall a program.

So how do you remove the wondrous finallyfast.com software?

It appears they have made it difficult to normally remove (the add/remove control panel applet is reported to not have a remove button for this one.)

Here are the files to delete:

* %ProgFiles%AscentivePC SpeedScan Pro
* %ProgFiles%AscentivePC SpeedScan ProSSRes.dll
* %ProgFiles%AscentivePerformance CenterApcMain.exe
* %ProgFiles%AscentivePC SpeedScan ProPCSpeedScan.exe

There are registry entries associated with it, but I would suggest against manual registry surgery and use a trusted tool like malwarebytes antimalware to do a thorough scan after the program files entries are removed.

Once it’s removed your pc will be finally fast!
