Any Of You Use WeatherBug... Is It Working?

Tue Dec 07, 2004 8:53 pm

I love that thing, been using it for a while. For the last two days, it's refused to work however.

Tried downloading the newest version, still didnt work.

How about the rest of you? Have it? If so, it working?

I used to use Weatherbug, but now I use Desktop Weather by the Weather Channel. I've found it works better and I dont get popups.

I had the weather channel version but didn't care for it as much. I also run the intellicast weather deal in conjunction with Weather Bug. Those 2 work for me.

cboy....never heard of the "weatherbug"...but we do have a weather dog down here. The weather girl on channel 46 use it to predict the weather and it is pretty accurate. In the morning we send it out (it's a black lab) and if it comes back running and bouncing its goona be a sunny day, if it comes back wet...its gonna rain. If it comes back white, we can safely expect snow, and if it don't come back at all...it's a tornado.

What is it that isn't working?

It'll work for the first few minutes... then it'll "refresh" itself and remain perpetually stuck in that status, saying that it needs an active internet connection (which I obviously have, but it cannot sense for some reason).

This just started like two days ago, before that, it'd worked fine for over a year.

I'm pretty sure weatherbug is adware. In which case, check you haven't run adaware, spybot, or any other detect-and-remove software recently. If you have, this could remove files that render weatherbug inoperative.

...bingo, you just hit the nail on the head.

Thanks!
