What is Windows Web Combat?
Windows Web Combat is a cunning infection that comes from the Rogue.VirusDoctor family, which also includes such threats as Windows Profound Security, Windows Virtual Angel, and many others. Like its predecessors, Windows Web Combat attempts to deceive a Windows user about her/her computer system’s security by displaying misleading information and offering the user to buy its fake full version. The so-called full version of the malware is said to be able to remove all infections detected; however, as the rogue only pretends that it is antivirus software to trick you out of a large sum of money, you should remove it from the system as soon as you notice it on your computer.
Once the infection is installed by a Trojan, which gets in the system unnoticed, it is very easy to notice the presence of Windows Web Combat, because it does not stop scanning the system and presenting bogus infections. For instance, you may find such supposedly dangerous infections as Trojan-IM, Porn-Downloader, Trojan-Ransom and others having insignificant names. Of course, some widely known names will be presented, as well. For example, Trojan.MSIL.Agent or Virus.Win32.Sality may really scare you into believing that you are infected if you know what these infections are capable of. Please, ignore all the infections presented by this fake application as well as misleading alert messages, of which some are presented below:
Keylogger activity detected. System information security is at risk. It is recommended to activate protection and run a full system scan.
Attempt to run a potentially dangerous script detected. Full system scan is highly recommended.
