What is Weather Do?
It is possible that you find Weather Do on your computer and you have no clue how this application has entered your system. Unfortunately, this program is totally useless and also potentially harmful with regard to your virtual security. Our malware researchers at anti-spyware-101.com have labeled it as an adware program due to its ability to display third-party advertisements and to promote websites. Having this adware on your computer can mean that there are several other malware threats as well that require your immediate attention. If you fail to act in time, before long you may lose control of your computer and your system may get littered by a number of infections. Since all the related malware programs may be able to expose you to questionable web content, there is only one solution we can offer: You should remove Weather Do and all other threats as well. Otherwise, you cannot call your computer secure again. Please continue reading our article so that you understand how this adware may present risks and how you can protect your system from similar threats.
Where does Weather Do come from?
This application comes from a relatively newly emerged family of ad-supported programs that include Flexible Family, FamilyGurus, and Diet Interactive. These are identical programs with mostly different themes, but it seems that occasionally only the name changes. The distribution method to spread these useless programs on the web is also the same. Reports and our research show that the most likely way to get infected with this adware is through third-party pop-up ads, such as download offers. These can be displayed by either suspicious websites or adware programs that are on your computer. Another possibility is that you run a web search but you use an unreliable search engine possibly promoted by a browser hijacker. Yet another option is that you might find it in a software bundle that you download from a questionable file-sharing website. It is quite clear that any of these ways mean multiple security issues.
It only gets worse when you learn that there is actually an official way for you to get hold of this application if you visit the promotional page, weatherdo.com. However, you should know that the installer you can download on this page is packed with suspicious, unwanted programs and other threats, including MyPcBackUp, Yoursearching.com, and System Healer. These adware programs, browser hijackers, and potentially unwanted programs may change according to your locality and also, time may be a factor. The way we see it, this should be just enough for any security-minded computer user to delete Weather Do right away. Obviously, this will not be sufficient as there are most likely other threats on board as well. Therefore, we also recommend that in order to identify all potential threat sources, you run a full-system malware scan. You can choose to do it manually or to use an online malware scanner if you do not have a tool installed.
How does Weather Do work?
Similarly to the other clones, this application also launches two windows: its own GUI (Graphical User Interface) and an Internet Explorer browser window. However, this program does not even have its own content; instead, it loads a specific promoted site in these windows, such as wunderground.com. These promoted sites are usually legitimate weather-related websites, but they may have a few potentially unreliable third-party promotions on them. It is also possible that this adware starts showing you unsafe third-party commercials, such as pop-ups. It is important to understand that these ads are not only disruptive and ruin your online experience, but they may also put your system security at risk. For example, if you click on a corrupt advertisement, you may end up on a shady, misleading website operated by criminals. This is always risky because you can easily infect your machine with more malware installers, but you might also fall for some dirty trick that results in identity theft. You may believe that you can avoid clicking on such ads but keep in mind that these crooks may be able to fool you by sending relevant commercials to your screen; ones that make you feel like "it is exactly what I need." This is pure psychology. And statistics show that they work quite well, too. So before you land on unsafe websites, we suggest that you remove Weather Do from your computer.
How to delete Weather Do
Finally, let us finish by sharing our solution for this infection. We must say that you are quite lucky because this adware has a well-working uninstaller that you can run through Control Panel. Our research shows that there should be no leftovers after you perform the uninstallation. We have included the necessary steps in our instructions below this article. Please follow these if you are not familiar with this process. Also, remember that you should keep away from suspicious websites associated with file sharing, such as torrent and shareware pages. Avoid clicking on random advertisements as well and keep in mind that these could also be traps and underneath the cover of a long-desired cheap price on a product you have been looking for there may be an embedded link that points to a malicious website. Keeping these very simple rules can help you surf the web more safely.
