Ok, go to C:/Program FIles/AWS/Weatherbug you'll see an application that says "remove" double click it and it removes weatherbug!

You are awesome - thank you comment #11! Finally weatherbug is gone:
C:program filesAWSweatherbug
Double click on "Remove" application .
Gone!
WeatherBug is removed like any other program- by exiting the program first (if you have an older version, the new version can still be running and uninstalled) and then going to add/remove programs and clicking WeatherBug. Note that after you click the 2 uninstall screens there is an OPTIONAL survey- if you have a pop-up blocker or certain firewalls, it may prevent the survey from opening. But by the time you get to the survey the program is removed. Close add/remove program window and reopen and it will be gone- my team and I test it every single day on multiple machines- dial up, broadband, etc.

If you have questions, either click the HELP button on your WeatherBug, click SUPPORT at our homepage www.weatherbug.com or email me at [email protected]

thanks,
Jay, Manager, customer support team, WeatherBug

My weatherbug wasn't that bad. First i went to task manager and saw no weatherbug to kill process. Then I went to add or remove programs and deleted it and it was gone like that. I then clicked start and search and typed the word weatherbug and deleted them. Finally I went to start, Run, and typed msconfig and then I clicked start up and unchecked weatherbug and restarted my computer.

Go to start and on the right column (where it has documents, pictures, music etc) your going to see control panel. Click on control panel and look for the category Programs. right under this category its going to say uninstall a program. Click it. Its going to show you all the programs currently installed, scroll down and look for weatherbug. Click on it and its going to give you the option to unistall. Click uninstall, a little box will appear where it wil say allow program to so on and so on. Click yes and it will uninstall and be removed from your list of programs. If you have any questions feel free to email me at [email protected]

Shame On You
I never knew about or wanted this program, it looks like it "hitch-hiked" with a concert I was downloading - BY THE WAY, the concert didnt dl. Just this weatherBUG. If this company is as reputable as they say, why do they sneak in and take over? And this has clearly been going on for almost a decade! I am disabled and need this stress like a ....well, i pretty much am at my limit so i cant even make a joke. Shame on you, "weatherbug" and i hope when someone does file a class action lawsuit against you, you lose big time. You are thieves, you are liars and you are criminals. Enjoy the karma.

I have windows 8 and WeatherBug found a way in. This was the first time Ive seen it. That was 3 days ago. I couldnt figure out how to get rid of it until I came to this site and saw the comment by Ms.Gonzalez. I am a computer idiot and can barely use google, but I found PROGAMS, clicked it and all of my programs came up just as Ms.Gonzalez said. Scrolled down to WEATHERBUG, clicked it and at top it said click to uninstall. I did and a window popped up that said to wait for current program to finish for uninstall to be complete. Once you see that you got him. Dont wait for that to happen it already has...just close out of the pop up and close the programs window and behind it is a WeatherBug window waiting for you to click. It should already have uninstall "checked" so go to bottom and click NEXT. Screen will change and at bottom click FINISH. WEATHERBUG IS NOW SQUASHED!

I finally figured out how to remove Weatherbug. So simple! The instructions says to RIGHT CLICK on icon in right hand corner. That part is correct but it also says to just click on Exit Weatherbug. You cant just click on it. You also have to RIGHT CLICK on Exit Weatherbug. Did it for me. I logged off and came back on today and it was gone. Yaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I tried all the above, and I have a Mac. I followed the right click, and opened the contents....it showed 4 folders/icons inside. Using the back arrow to reveal only the main folder with contents inside, I sent it to the trash...and emptied the trash can immediately. The contents then showed no more folders, however the icon bug remained in my applications....I still couldnt trash that. I then restarted my computer, and the icon went the way of the wind :))

What a royal pain....
