Desktop Weather Channel

Desktop Weather Channel

Desktop Weather Channel is an application, as its name shows, for checking the weather forecast. It has been created in order to enable users to find out the weather forecast in their local areas without searching the web. In other words, they do not need to open any websites when they can get this info with the click of a button. Once Desktop Weather Channel is installed on the computer, it places a button opening a window with a weather forecast next to the URL bar on Google Chrome. It seems that only a version for this browser exists, so this application should not affect your other browsers installed on the computer. Desktop Weather Channel does look like a beneficial application because it promises to provide 5-day weather forecast for free; however, it definitely cannot be called perfect. Specialists at anti-spyware-101.com have found two disturbing facts about this application and, as a consequence, have classified it as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Programs that fall into this category are, surely, not as dangerous as malicious applications, but they might perform undesirable activities too. Read this article and decide yourself whether it is worth giving Desktop Weather Channel a chance or not. Read more »
