Severity scale:WebCake severity is 15  (15 / 100)

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:

  1. Click Start -> Control Panel -> Programs (or Add/Remove Programs) -> Uninstall a Program.
  2. Here, look for WebCake and select 'Uninstall/Change'.
  3. Click OK to save the changes.

Additionally, if you haven't installed this program consciously, you are highly recommended to scan the system with updated SpyHunterSTOPzilla or Malwarebytes Anti Malware to make sure that your PC is free of viruses. 

Finally, fix each of your browsers:

Internet Explorer:

Open Internet Explorer, go ‘Tools‘ -> ”Manage Add-ons’ -> ‘Toolbars and Extensions’. Here, look for WebCake and click 'uninstall'. Now open IE once again and click Tools -> Internet Option -> General tab. Enter Google or other address to make it the default start page.

Mozilla Firefox:

Open Mozilla Firefox, go ‘Tools’ -> ‘Add-ons’ -> ‘Extensions’. Find WebCake and click ‘Uninstall’. Now open Mozilla Firefox once more, go to Tools -> Options -> General -> Startup and select 'Show a blank page' when Firefox Starts or set a certain website, like Google or similar.

Google Chrome:

Open Google Chrome, click on wench icon, go to settings and choose 'Manage search engines'. Change search engine to google or other and delete WebCake from the list. Then Go to section “On start” and make sure you get blank page while creating new tab.

I found out that webcake is a SEVERE threat to your computer, i did recovery and it was somehow still there, if you have it, destroy your harddrive and get a new one, there will be no saving your computer if you get it

it disconects you from internet
slows down browsing speeds
increases CPU and RAM usage
get it removed as fast as possible before it "nestles" into your harddrive

I have had Webcake.A and Webcake.C on my XP-based system, and although MalwareBytes Anti-Malware free and Pro versions can detect it and apparently delete the incidences found, somehow the software still finds Webcake incidences on subsequent runs after rebooting, so thus far, I dont know of any method to completely eradicate it.
