Fabar Service Scanner (FSS.exe) – Identify Internet Connectivity Problems

Authors: Bryce Whitty

Farbar Service Scanner is a small, portable and free application that gives a detailed report on the files, registries and services that are responsible for network connectivity. The purpose of this report is to help you identify the source of connectivity problems if one of these files is infected or corrupted. This is especially useful after you have removed Malware from the operating system system but it is still unable to connect to the internet.
