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.
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.
When trying to remove WebCake, you should uninstall it firstly through Add/Remove Programs list at first. For that, use these steps:
You can remove WebCake automatically with a help of one of these programs: SpyHunter, STOPzilla, Malwarebytes Anti Malware. We recommend these applications because they can easily delete potentially unwanted programs and viruses with all their files and registry entries that are related to them.

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 WebCake:
• 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
