WeatherBug is a program that helps the user to know the weather forecast, but the program is not as helpful as annoying. WeatherBug is a program that should be installed manually, that's why usually it is an addition to some programs that user installs. If the user forgets to remove the tick in the process of installation of any needed program, then some additional programs like WeatherBug can appear in the system. WeatherBug is a freeware, but for the usage you should suffer from different commercial pop-up windows. So sooner or later you will be tired of it and will want to get rid of this program.
