FastScan is the component of Trojan Remover which runs each time you start your computer. It carries out the same scanning functions as are carried out when you run a Scan from within Trojan Remover itself.


When a suspicious Program Information File is found being loaded from any system file, Trojan Remover analyses the PIF to determine the target MS-DOS application. It then scans this application. If anything suspicious is found an alert is displayed showing the PIF name and where it is loaded from, and information on the target MS-DOS application referenced by the PIF.


Once the scan is complete you should start Trojan Remover to remove this Malware.


Clicking on the Continue button will continue the scan.


If you do not wish to see this alert again, but wish to allow the file being alerted on to continue loading, click on the Exclude button.
