Windows Web Commander. How to Remove? (Uninstall Guide)

removal by - -   Also known as Windows WebCommander | Type: Malware

Windows Web Commander is a very sneaky application that comes from the same family of rogue anti-spywares (FakeVimes) as Windows Interactive Security. Just like its predecessor, this program is in the list of the most annoying programs of the past week because of its secret infiltration and misleading activity on its target PC. Windows Web Commander uses the same GUI as its earlier version and also applies similar distribution patterns. In most of the cases, users have no idea that they have malware on their computers until they start receiving continuous alerts and scanners from Windows Web Commander. If you have also been reported that you have malware on your computer, make sure you don't fall for such information. The most important thing you have to do is to remove Windows Web Commander before it downloads more viruses on your PC.

Just like any other rogue, Windows Web Commander tends to penetrate into computer with a help of trojans. In most of the cases this intrusion bypasses victim’s attention and always includes some secret modifications made to computer's registry. This helps for Windows Web Commander to boot up as soon as user reboots his computer and additionally display its misleading alerts. Accompanied by fabricated security scanners, these warnings work for the only aim – they try to convince you that you have many security issues and malware items on your machine. Of course, they are not legitimate and report about invented problems in order to scare you. Note that you must simply ignore such alerts and never delete files listed on them. Here are some examples of Windows Web Commander alerts:

Firewall has blocked a program from accessing the Internet.
Windows Media Player Resources
C:\Windows\system32\dllcache\wmploc.dll is suspected to have infected your PC. This type of virus intercepts entered data and transmits them to a remote server.
Software without a digital signature detected.
Your system files are at risk. We strongly advise you to activate your protection.
