Do you know what WebCheck is?
WebCheck is an adware application. It means that it comes forth as a useful application that promises to improve your web browsing experience, but in reality it does nothing but slow down your web browser. Adware programs are there to make money for their creators and although they seldom employ illegal means and measures; it is not a good idea to keep one on your PC. Hence, it is highly recommended to remove WebCheck from the system as the program may inadvertently leak your information to unreliable third parties.
Some users may think that WebCheck is a dangerous infection that spams them with annoying and malicious pop-ups. However, usually computer infections enter target systems surreptitiously behind users’ backs. As you can obviously tell, that is not the case with WebCheck. The application has a direct download link available at webcheck1.com. The official website guides you through the installation process and you can easily choose whether you want WebCheck on the PC or not.WebCheck screenshot

On the other hand, our research lab team suggests that WebCheck may also come bundled with freeware. If that is the case, then it is of no surprise why users complain about this program. When WebCheck and similar adware applications travel bundled with freeware programs, users most often fail to see that they install more than just one app on their computers. It calls for extreme caution each time you download freeware programs. In fact, if you need to download something, get your program at the official source!
At the main website WebCheck is promoted as a new browser extension that can enhance your browser performance, make surfing the internet more security and protect you from phishing attacks. It all sounds nice, but since WebCheck is free of charge, it is most obviously ad-supported. It means that when you install this program onto your PC, it will start collecting information on what websites you visit. Later on that data will be used to generate commercial ads whenever you access supported websites.
For the most part, WebCheck ads are annoying, and they simply slow down your browser, but adware applications are also often exploited by malevolent third parties. If that happens, WebCheck may display commercial ads that contain corrupted links to malware-related websites. Needless to say, clicking on such ads would lead you to dangerous pages and could eventually result in malware infection.
To prevent that from happening, you should remove WebCheck as soon as possible. It is rather easy to uninstall the application via Control Panel so you should not have any problem with that. However, you should seriously consider investing in a powerful antispyware tool to protect your PC from similar intruders.
