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.
