What is FastCompress-Zip?
FastCompress-Zip is advertised as “the best file compression solution.” If you open its official website fastcompress.com, you will quickly notice that this application promises to “create, open and extract Zip, TAR, GZip and 7-Zi” file archives. Also, it is said that the application is very powerful and easy to use, which explains why a number of users download and install it from its official website willingly or decide to keep this potentially unwanted program installed on the system after they detect it. Yes, researchers usually classify FastCompress-Zip as a potentially unwanted program because it has been noticed that it might start acting in an undesirable way. If you have noticed something suspicious about it, you should remove it and then install another file compression application. We suggest getting rid of this program also if it has sneaked onto your computer without permission, i.e. you cannot remember downloading and installing it yourself.
Where does FastCompress-Zip come from?
Research has clearly shown that FastCompress-Zip is popular in Thailand, Italy, and Brazil at the time of writing. Of course, the situation might change quickly because it has been found that it is capable of entering computers without permission. It has been found out that FastCompress-Zip is also spread in software bundles, which means that not all the people download this program from its official website willingly. Users report that this potentially unwanted program usually travels bundled with freeware; however, the bundle it travels in might contain unreliable programs too, so we suggest checking the system as well after the deletion of this application. If you detect software which you see for the first time, you should find out what it does immediately because there is a slight possibility that it has entered the system together with FastCompress-Zip and is now performing undesirable activities behind your back.
If you wish to be sure that you have encountered FastCompress-Zip, you should check the directory %PROGRAMFILES% or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)%. Can you find its main folder FastCompress-Zip there with such files as 7z.dll, FM.exe, Fast_Support.exe, and FastCompress-Zipx64.dll? If the answer is yes, you can be sure that this application is installed on your PC. We do not really care whether it has sneaked onto your computer without permission, or you have downloaded it yourself because it has to be erased from the system ASAP if you want to be sure that it does not perform undesirable activities behind your back. There is no doubt you will find a better archiver instead of it.
What does FastCompress-Zip do?
We suggest getting rid of FastCompress-Zip not without a reason. Specialists have found out that this potentially unwanted program might drop the nuesearch.com browser hijacker on the system. Of course, users are not informed about that, so they find it very surprising that their homepages and search engines are changed. We have to note that nuesearch.com is not the most reliable search engine, so you should not keep it installed if you do not want to cause harm to your computer. Yes, this search engine does not seem to be bad judging from its appearance; however, specialists are sure that it might still provide users with untrustworthy search results that can redirect to bad third-party websites. As can be seen, even though FastCompress-Zip works as a compression tool, it is very likely that it has been created to promote undesirable software. If you do not erase it soon, it might download other serious computer infections apart from the nuesearch.com browser hijacker.
