Windows Web Combat is a typical rogue antispyware tool that is especially designed to pretend to be a spyware removal tool. It is used to trick innocent users into paying a useless product. This malware can automatically run once you reboot your computer. It is able to get into your system without your permission and collect your personal information, such as your full name, ID numbers, face, fingerprints, handwriting and credit card numbers secretly.
This virus always enters system through various browser vulnerabilities, trojans and exploits. Once it is loaded, it will run a scan automatically, pretending itself as a real virus scanner. It generates a screen of scan results where it claims to detect a bunch of different infectious files. However, in reality they must be ignored instead of following them because Windows Web Combat has an empty virus database and has no capabilities to find any virus. What it wants is to trick you into paying its useless full version and steal your money from there. If you pay for that, you will just lose your money but the situation of your computer will remain the same or even worse. The virus may cut off your Internet, install additional spyware to your computer as well as attack your files. It violates your privacy and compromises your security that should be eliminated as soon as possible.
