What is adware?

Adware is a program that displays advertisements while people are browsing online. Advertisements appear in a web browser, pop-up windows, special toolbars or within the host program. Adware also can gather information about user’s habits and interests. Once it collects what it needs, it sends it out through a background Internet connection. Such behavior allows adware vendors to deliver targeted advertisements to the end user and collect general statistics. However, it may also be used for stealing people’s private data.

Adware is divided into parasitical and legitimate applications. Illegal advertising programs are very similar to spyware parasites and often have some of their functions. They can be installed without user's knowledge and start working every time a computer is rebooted. However, they are less dangerous than rogues because the most of such parasites are primarily intended to collect user’s personal information for marketing and advertising purposes. Unfortunately, you can never know what other purposes it can be used for.

Symptoms showing that your computer was infected by We-care.com:

•  Appearance of annoying pop-up ads
•  Appearance of banners and in-text ads
•  Redirects to unknown and suspicious websites
•  Changes in homepage and default search engine
•  Decreased speed of every Internet browser

How do you do it for Windows 8?

I tried the way described above, but the "dialog box" that pops up is asking whether I want to let that program MAKE CHANGES to my computer - and Im pretty sure I dont want it doing anything of the sort! I cant trust it to "leave peacefully," you could say.

Thanks for posting this article. I hope you have some input on my question.

I downloaded Malwarebytes free from CNET. It detected wecare and removed it. I use microsofts built in security for Windows8, which did not protect me. Spybot or Avast did not detect it as a malware either. Cheers for the malwarebytes !!!
