    The same thing happened to me. Don't add the application. If you did already, block it.

    Check here for more information on what it is.

    Changing the password will not work. You will need to remove this application completely, as the Error Check System is a worm going around Facebook. (http://im.about.com/od/promotingimsafety/a/faceboo...

    To remove, follow these four easy steps:

    1. Click "Applications" in the bottom, left-hand corner of Facebook.

    2. Next, click "Edit" in the top, right-hand corner of the Applications menu.

    3. Locate "Error Check System," then click the "X" on the line next to its name.

    4. A window will appear confirming this action. Select "Remove" to completely remove the application.

    please enter your facebook account,

    go to your profile applications page, or

    paste this into your address bar :

    http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/editapps.php?v=p...

    in the "show" list box ,choose "Authorized"

    in the list of applications below, look for "Error Check System"

    remove it , by pressing the "X" next to it.

    you will be prompt about the consequences of removing an application.

    we want the consequences, so we will acknowledge that by pressing "Remove"

    and it's all set.

    a few future advices:

    1. do not believe everything you read on the internet period.

    2. even if you believed something , that doesn't mean you have to handle it the way it was suggested.

    3. be cautious about the applications you authenticate on facebook , those applications are mostly created by the public , meaning they can be harmful.

    Here's a topper! If you do a Google search on 'facebook error check', the very first link is another scam!

    This must be some kind of weird virus that just got released.

    I'm sure it's just picking random people, installing itself, and sending it out to all your friends.
