Are you having difficultly getting rid of the PUP.Optional.FastAdressBar.A trojan virus? PUP.Optional.FastAdressBar.A is a result of the RATEGA virus, which is a trojan horse that may give a remote user access to the sensitive data stored on your computer. This particular malicious software may not be easily deleted by your current virus scanner. In general I recommend people try more than one scanner to make sure every remnant of a virus has been deleted.
This trojan will a hidden proxy server on the victim’s system, and will report sensitive information such as your IP address, saved passwords, and browsing history to the master thief account. PUP.Optional.FastAdressBar.A is particular dangerous because it will automatically execute dangerous EXE files on your system, meaning more badware and viruses installed without you knowing.
A common way of becoming infected is through an infected e-mail message, such as a fake phishing bank letter, a bugged photo attachment, a questionable download, or simply visiting an infected MySpace page, for example.
What are the symptoms of a PUP.Optional.FastAdressBar.A Infection?
Common symptoms are:
– Slow internet performance
– Crashing operating system
– Strange new icons on the desktop and/or taskbar
– Hijacked search results, hijacked home page
– Slow start-up
– Strange pop-ups
To uninstall PUP.Optional.FastAdressBar.A you will need to scan your system with a trusted, reliable virus scanner. Take heed that sometimes a well known virus scanner won’t find the infection! This is why, I’ll say again, that we need to use more than a single scan. Always scan with 2 separate programs when you’re infected with a deadly trojan such as this one.
You can attempt to remove forms of spyware, but I do not recommend attempting a manual removal of PUP.Optional.FastAdressBar.A. You would need to be an expert in working around a PC registry to have a chance. It’s better to use an automated removal tool, you may scan your system first at no cost using one of my top 3 reviewed spyware tools.
PUP.Optional.FastAdressBar.A is a virus that won’t go away on it’s own. You must remove PUP.Optional.FastAdressBar.A before it makes your computer even slower and steals your sensitive information.
