Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Weatherbug is adware, but not spyware. It can be removed fairly easily from your system.
How do I uninstall weather bug?
Weather Bug apparently has a long and somewhat sordid history. Early versions of it were known to install the one of the earliest and most well known spyware packages: gator.
Thankfully, Weather Bug has become better behaved over time.
Weatherbug is still adware - but not spyware. And uninstalling turns out to be a simple manner these days. Pchell.com has an article: WeatherBug Removal Instructions and Help.
Update: The folks at Weatherbug recently dropped me a line:
"I'd like to suggest that if a customer has a question about WeatherBug (removing it or otherwise) - you can link directly to our FAQ page which answers most of the common questions, including how to uninstall, which of course is done the same way you uninstall any program, via add/remove programs in the control panel."
Here's the Weatherbug FAQ.
