"RUN AWAY ! ! !"

November 20, 2014  |  By Concerned_USA_Citizen

 |  Version: The Weather Channel App 7.59.99

Pros

If you can isolate the app and kill all the attached malware, it is pretty helpful.

Cons

I can't believe that an organization like The Weather Channel would agree to attach advertisement malware to this very useful tool...... boy was I wrong.

"Buggy and malware"

March 22, 2014  |  By TK05

 |  Version: The Weather Channel App 7.59.99

Pros

*It gives you the weather.

Cons

*Buggy, causes system to run slow
*Doesn't work every time
*Bundled with Malware

Summary

I was looking for a simple weather application and had assumed that The Weather Channel would be a good place to get one. I was completely wrong. Not only does the application not work half of the time, it bogs down my system when its doing it (Intel i7 Processor with 12 GB of RAM!!!). Assuming I had been infected, I ran Malwarebytes to find that it did contain malware.

Do not install this program!!

"Nothing but problems"

March 21, 2014  |  By MennoTed

 |  Version: The Weather Channel App 7.59.99

Pros

Convenient when it didn't crash, but crash it did.

Cons

I wrote a review earlier saying that the app didn't work very well and often created script and other errors. Often showed no data and was convinced that I had no internet connection.(I did)After they issued an update I decided to try again. After installing, my computer dragged along - it seemed to use way too much processor. Finally I got the dreaded "blue screen" and decided that it had to be the weather channel app. I uninstalled and my computer is running smooth and fast again. Running Win 7. I recommend that you stay away.

"Warning - Malware"

December 04, 2013  |  By gulchgoersf

 |  Version: The Weather Channel App 7.59.99

Pros

This app and a few others were installed without my permission when I downloaded Filezilla. I never even installed Filezilla, just downloaded it. Malwarebytes identified the exe as a Trojan and wiped it out. Beware!

Cons

Malware!!!!!
