Webcake malware removal

For two days, I’ve been struggling to remove Webcake virus from my computer. I have been using this computer for two months without an idea that there is no protection installed with it. Due to some conflicting issues, I removed the antivirus few months back. It never occurred to me to install it back again.

Yesterday, I decided to scan my computer with anti-malware program. I discovered that there are dozens of adware, hijackers, and toolbars residing on my computer. Webcake is one of them. I was able to remove other adware except for this nasty Webcake virus. I decided to post this issue on this forum since I have used many of your procedure to remove infections on my PC way back. Searching the Internet for solution, the first two results want me to buy spyhunter and some sorts of programs to solve the Webcake issue. So, I neglect it right away.

At the very least, I know that I can get Webcake out of my computer without the need to spend some penny. I am looking to effective guide to remove this virus from my computer. Please help me.

Regards,
Peacemaker
