How do I remove Fasso.com apyware app

I have some system that have this Fasso.com app installed. the users have no idea how it got there. It doesn't show up in the add/remove programs. Just under the programs folder. There is an installer in the folder but it want s a password, which no one knows.

Any thoughts?

Have you ran a spyware/virus removal utility?  Look into malwarebytes, download that and run it.  Maybe fasso.com is spyware related.  Also, download Microsoft Installer Cleanup utility, does it show up when running that program?  
If the users have no idea who put it there I would just delete the folder, use the above suggested tool or use RevoUninstaller.
A fassco search doesn't come up with anything related to spyware.  If you are a manufacturing company, I suggest looking at the program to see what it is since search results indicate it appears to be legitimate.

Evaluating a UTM appliance and vendor can prove to be an overwhelming exercise.  How can you make sure that you're getting the security that your organization needs without breaking the bank? Check out our UTM Buyer's Guide for more information on what you should be looking for!

If your system is infected with a pest, malware, trojan, or virus your system will behave unexpectedly.  The best method to attempt resolution is to completely rule out the operating system by bypassing it.  To do so, you will need a rescue CD.  There are several that are out there, you might be able to create one, there are instructions and sites that can assist with that.  But the easiest way is to use a product that is FREE, and I have used successfully for several of my clients and on many workstations.

BitDefender (FREE Downloadable Rescue CD).  Available Here.

Instructions on the product.

Hope this helps.

PS.  This may sound like a "canned" response, it just might be.  However, it is the easiest and most effective method to resolve a situation like this.

I suggest that you upload the installer file to virustotal.com!
If it's a virus/trojan delete it using killbox.

In addition to the other great suggestions posted; if they all fail, try creating a bootable antivirus CD. If that doesn't fix it, then you've got some serious problems. It's always good to keep on hand at anytime:
