    If you experience problems with any application trying to download a virus (I, too, have heard that the new Fan Check photos app has one, and I have had problems with the Birthday Calendar app trying to download the Trojan Horse into my computer), you can do a few things: 1.) Have a really good anti-virus program (like Avast) that will zap it out, 2.) Click on "Report" when you go to the "About" section of the app (This is from the Facebook Help Center at the bottom of the Facebook homepage), &/or 3.) Remove the app by going to your application settings.

    No, the Fan Check application is not a virus. What is infecting people is the fake applications that claim to remove this so-called virus. People get scared that they may have a virus, so they Google "Facebook Fan Check Virus," and the top results are all sites that download malicious software to your computer claiming to be a fix. If you've used the application but haven't downloaded any program claiming to fix it, you're fine.

    I was unlucky enough to get this virus, i believe to be from fan check.

    You need to ensure your anti virus is up to date.

    I currently have Nortons which helped sort me out.

    Also ensure that you get rid of application and untag yourself from anyone elses photos of this application.

    I was getting random messages sent from my account and also slowed my computer down.

    Good Luck

    I've looked for it myself. It's apparently been taken off. If it hasn't, I can't find it.
