"WebCakeDesktop.Updater.exe is an adware program that displays advertisements and sponsored links on Google Search, Facebook, Bing and other websites that you are visiting" "This infection is designed specifically to make money. It generates web traffic, collects sales leads for other dubious sites, and will display advertisements and sponsored links within your web browser"

You will have installed it when you installed a free program and did not do a custom install and deselect the 'additional' stuff offered.

Here's how to get rid of it: Remove WebCakeDesktop.Updater.exe
