Thread: Weather Program
July 4th, 2004, 03:23 AM #1
Just wondering what you guys think is the best program out there for keeping track of the weather.
I have something called Weather Watcher. Much better than the WeatherBug; smaller, less of a resource hog, and no ads.
Thanks for your input.

Weatherbug contains spyware, I avoid it like the plague.“One things for sure: Whenever we play, our goalie stays warm.”

I use The Weather Channel program from the Weather Channel website.
No spyware, no BS, no cost.

I have used Weatherbug in the past.
When I installed WeatherWatcher from SingersCreations.com, I was not asked my gender, or if I would be bying a car in the next 6 months.
WeatherBug Audience and Targeting section from the Advertisement menu from Home Page, or click here for instant transport.
No, I installed and removed manually , not by choice (would have been nice if Add/Remove could have done it for me), within 3 hours, because I had been hijacked. I didn't even know what one would call it, so I termed it an invasion of my computer, gave up on my website, and turned it loose on my kids to let them deal with the slow crawl, fancy Search Here... Explorer context menu, and constant out of the blue attempted dial-ups from the modem.
WeatherBug didn't hijack my modem or browser, the software that they bundled with did.
"Our software is NOT tied to ANY KNOWN spyware. (emphasis mine)
just an excerpt from a 5 star spyware scanner and cleanerfrom the most reputable companies -- do a search if interested.)
MySearch is a browser hijacker which runs as an IE toolbar providing search features, and a homepage-/search-hijacker, targeted at the sites run by MyWay. What is MySearch and what exactly does it do?
MySearch is a trojan that may reset your browser's home page and/or search settings to point to other sites. Such sites are sometimes porn sites, often loaded with advertisting. Such homepage hijackers may prevent you from changing your browser’s homepage. It would slow the performance of Internet Explorer.
It exists in the following variants :
MySearch: This was the first variant, targeted at mysearch.com.
MyWay: It used different filenames and targeted at myway.com.
MyWeb: This is a new variant targeted at mywebsearch.com. It is also known as MyWay Speed Bar.
The MySearch and MyWay variants come bundled with Grokster, Morpheus, WeatherBug, and software from mgshareware.com. MySearch has also been reported to be installed by the FavoriteMan parasite. The MyWeb variant is bundled with software like Popswatter, SmileyCentral, My Mail Stamp from “Fun Web Products”.

As of the newest release of Weatherbug(6.0) I will no longer be using Weatherbug. You are required to install teh MySearch browser companion on your toolbar. I do not think so...time for a new weather program for me as well!

I switched to the Weather Watcher program mentioned in noseBleeD's post after "upgrading" to W-Bug 6.0 from 5.0 (had been a long time user). Been very pleased with Weather Watcher."The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; It's just that they know so much that isn't so." -- Ronald Reagan
