WebCake is not a useful application, which can enhance your browsing experience by showing best offers and discount coupons when you enter some commercial website. Web Cake is a potentially unwanted program, adware, which can get inside the system without any permission asked and then start interrupting you when you start each of your browsing sessions. Basically, this program causes more inconveniences than benefits because it shows its continuous alerts on all Internet browsers, including Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. Besides, it can easily change the start page, default search engine and other settings without your knowledge. While it doesn't has a malicious code like malware or rogue anti-spyware, we don't recommend leaving WebCake on your computer.
HOW CAN I GET Web Cake ON MY PC?
As we have said, WebCake can enter computer's system not only after you download it manually from its official website. It can also get on its target PC without your permission asked in a bundle with freeware, shareware and similar applications. Usually, you can prevent this by keeping an eye on every installation window of the software you want to install. In addition, you should unclick all unfamiliar entries. As soon as it gets inside, Web Cake embeds its code into each of your Internet browsers and starts interrupting its victims with constant pop-up ads. Note that such programs are created NOT for showing the greatest deals for you. They can also be used to track your browsing habits and collect information about the user. If you are bored by constant pop-up ads and commercial notifications from WebCake, you should uninstall this app without any delay.
