Webcake invaded my computer as I was trying to enter a contest to win a gift certificate on a friends Facebook post. It happened so fast I couldn't stop it. It's been a complete nuisance and has made me very angry with all the pop-up ads. My lesson has been learned. I couldn't even find it as a program in my Add/Remove Programs on my Control Panel, so I am going to try your program Roger. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

@Mary: Thanks, I was not aware that the WebCake entry sometimes is missing in the Add/Remove programs dialog. When I tested WebCake it appeared as "WebCake 3.00".

Happy to hear you are trying out FreeFixer. It can remove the WebCake software. Please let me know if you need any assistance with the removal.

Yippee, Roger, it worked!! Thanks so much. I did think I was going bonkers-wonkers when I couldn't find WebCake in the Add/Remove programs dialog box. I even exited out and reopened at least twice just to make sure. It took me a while to even find WebCake's name to know what program to research. lol. All's well that ends well and I'm keeping FreeFixer around for a long while just in case I do something stupid like that again!
