A review of Farbar Recovery Scan Tool by Tina de Pierre

Farbar Recovery Scan Tool (also known as FRST) is a tool aimed at users wishing to rid their computer of problems caused by malware infections.

The program is complex, but easy-to-use for most users but better suited towards more advanced users. It does not require installation, since it's portable.

Farbar Recovery Scan Tool can be run in two modes: either in normal mode or in safe mode. Safe mode might be the better bet if there's been serious damage or ongoing malware infection.

The application will scan the target system and save the results to a text file. You can create a fix list text file which can be used by the Farbar Recovery Scan Tool, especially useful for people obtaining support from online forums.

Overall, Farbar Recovery Scan Tool is a useful application but not exactly the easiest for new or novice PC users.
