A computer system’s protection is impossible without a powerful security application which can protect your data stored on it against theft. Windows Web Commander is a bogus application in questions. This malware operates in the same manner as Windows Proprietary Advisor, Windows Privacy Extension and other which are constituents of the Rogue.VirusDoctor family that consists of identical fraudulent application having the only purpose to obtain Windows users’ money. Windows Web Commander only pretends to be powerful to persuade you to purchase its so-called full version which supposedly effectively removes infections such as virus, worms, Trojans and others. There is nothing legitimate about this application; hence, its removal from the system is highly recommended. If you have never encountered this type of threat, keep on reading to learn more about this pest.
Windows Web Commander can get into the system into ways. It can be installed either by the user consciously or by a Trojan without the users’ knowledge and consent. The second case is more complicated, because a Trojan sneaks in the system unnoticed. It bypasses the Firewall or a weak security application and installs the rogue. As the malware looks like a reputable Windows application, the user might not even think of removing it from the system, especially when it informs him or her that the system is infected with various viruses.
Everything that is introduced to the user is simulated and should not be trusted. Like a devoted soldier, the malware supposedly guards the system. It produces scans and bogus infections to make you think that you are at risk. The infections presented are not dangerous, because they simply do not exist in the system. Hence, do not attempt to remove them by yourself. If you lack technical knowledge, you might unintentionally remove relevant files and the system might stop running properly. In addiction to the rogue’s deception, you should ignore every single notification presented. Windows Web Commander produces many fake messages, and only some of them are presented below:
Keylogger activity detected. System information security is at risk. It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.
Potential malware detected.
It is recommended to activate protection and perform a thorough system scan to remove the malware.
Attempt to run a potentially dangerous script detected. Full system scan is highly recommended.
If you get a different message, check what program has sent it, and if it is Windows Web Commander, ignore the message, because its content does not match up with the reality.
Windows Web Commander also imitates the presence of infections by impairing the system. For the average computer user, lack of access to the Internet, non-responsiveness to certain applications and absence of Task Manager might seem to be a consequence of the infections presented. The more experienced user may also find that Registry Editor is hidden as well, which makes the manual removal of Windows Web Commander impossible. Luckily, now you can delete the rogue easily if you register it with an activation key which is provided for you after the purchase.
