Fast Flight Tracker

Advertisement on the Web did go intrusive in recent years, and customers are getting used to it. Banner ads are all over the Net – beginning with reputable services and ending with long-dead portals. Once upon a time, you've mentioned a dozen banners per day, and today there is much more of them. People did finally realize that the Net is the great source to get fresh clients, and so did fraudsters. They make adware to crawl into the laptop so that it would display to you dangerous, fake pop-ups. Our today's subject is a great exhibit of such utilities. Unwanted promotions aren’t meant to help you find things – they’re just for clicking. If you click on one of those banners, you will be on a useless webpage, where you won't get anything real. In most cases, these sites have nothing to give, except for a suggestion to get a useless gratis utility, which will drive your laptop insane and display more advertising to you. If you've had enough of it – on our site you’ll find all info you need to eliminate it.

What is Fast Flight Tracker

 

Fast Flight Tracker is a program, designed to do one thing: to show you pop-ups. We can't even call it a program, as it’s just a primitive script, able to modify your browser settings and printing new entries to the system registry. For you to see its way of working, we’ll describe its doings stepwise:

  • If you've chosen the "not recommended" technique and aborted the installation of adware – you would not read our guide. Based on this, we think that you didn’t spot that box. According to this the installation proceeded and Fast Flight Tracker began functioning.
  • Next step is to put the advertising program to a file-sharing portal, in one package with several other undesired utilities. Then it should wait for a victim to find it – a guy who won’t overlook the windows during the installation and wants to get over the installation ASAP. Of course, the user doesn't think he's installing Fast Flight Tracker advertising program – there's a useful program in a file. It's the one that people want, but downloading it, they get a heap of unwanted stuff in addition.
  • The main Fast Flight Tracker’s task is complete when it alters your browser settings, so it only has to develop the defense mechanisms. It adds new lines into the system registry and sets system tasks to not let you reset browser controls.
  • The first process that advertising program executes since breaking onto your device is getting the browser under total control. It switches the starting page and search system and replaces them with the swindlers' infected website. After that you never see relevant results for your queries – Fast Flight Tracker will show you just the results that fraudsters want to show you.
  • If a victim downloads a bundle and tries to install it, a dialogue window appears, giving two installation methods. The #1 is already selected, and in rare cases you can’t even pick another one, because it’s hidden. By picking the proposed way you allow to install each harmful tool from adware package, and the "not recommended" technique allows you choose the useful program and erase the other ones.

This is how Fast Flight Tracker penetration looks like. After the move #5, Fast Flight Tracker is totally ineffective, as all main work, meaning the showing of ads, gets done by fake search engine. Casually the webpage looks like Bing, Yahoo or Google, and customer can type any request in its search bar, but there won’t be any relevant answers. Hackers take advantage of a free function, known as Google Custom Search Engine to make their webpages, and its principal feature is to limit the search area to a couple webpages. Hackers apply this service to show the untrusted search results and make customers think that they’re real.

How to protect the system

One thing we should know about computer’s protection from Fast Flight Tracker and other adware – it's a hard job. Without a doubt, the antivirus will help a lot, yet you also need to do, or even stop doing some things. We’ll catalogue these things under this paragraph.

  • Update your utilities on time, especially, your OS and your antiviral tool. Suchlike measures will reduce the chances of adware infection.
  • You shouldn’t download gratis software, but if you need to use it anyway – download it from an official website.
  • There is no true occasion to deactivate your anti-viral tool. In particular if some program wants you to do it.
  • Do not click on annoying ads, and do not visit strange webpages. By that we mean pages which distribute bootleg utilities and movies, adult content, and other similar stuff.

Our advice might help you to avoid advertising tools and the majority of the other useless programs. Regardless of that, some malware may sneak onto your device via other manners, and you need to install a first-class antivirus to delete them.
