Desktop Weather Alerts is a free application, which is supposed to warn people about latest weather changes and other air conditions. However, after installing its plugin on the system, it becomes clear that this program may also start displaying notifications that are not related to weather. These ads are typically filled with sponsored links that are supposed to make people visit specific websites and increase their web traffic or sales in this way. Beware that these ads may also redirect you to unknown websites, cause infiltration of other PUPs and slow down your browsers. That's why we highly recommend avoiding Desktop Weather Alerts ads and uninstalling this adware from the system.

How can Desktop Weather Alerts infiltrate computer?

Desktop Weather Alerts is available at various download websites. However, it is mostly spread in a bundle with freeware and shareware. This distribution method is unfair because people are hardly warned how many programs they will install on their computers.

In addition, you have to uncheck these check boxes that say that you agree to install Desktop Weather Alerts and similar adware. If it infiltrates your computer, it affects all web browsers that can be found on the system. That's why you may find out that avoiding Desktop Weather Alerts has become a serious task.
