I went through the removal instructions and the program listing dissapered but every time I boot up the weather bug icon loads into the system tray. I can find nothing about effectively removing it from the system tray.

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]

Jay, Manager, customer support team, WeatherBug

How dare weatherbug argue for adware creating no harm? I am spending hours and hours trying to undo the damage caused by it to my computer.

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.
