You may think that it is a good idea to have an application like Weather Inspect on your system, as it can display local weather information; however, we believe that you need to be careful with this app. In fact, we have labeled this threat as an adware program since it can install a bunch of other processes that would constantly fill your screen with all kinds of potentially unsafe third-party ads. Exposure to questionable content can always be risky because if you click on an unreliable advertisement, you could be redirected to a malicious website or directly drop further infections onto your machine. Since it is quite likely that this adware threat infiltrates your computer along with other malicious software installers, you could be facing multiple system security issues right now. If you want to save your computer from further problems, we recommend that you remove Weather Inspect as soon as possible. If you would like to learn more about this infection and how it can show up on your computer together with other threats, please continue reading our article.
This adware infection actually has its own promotional website at weatherinspect.com. This site looks quite trendy and professional, which could be rather misleading. However, the first big question mark arises as soon as you try to download this application by clicking on any of the buttons or links on the site. As a matter of fact, nothing happens at all apart from refreshing the page. This is rather suspicious when the application is not actually available on its own website. So how did it end up on your computer? Well, the answer will not make you happy. Unfortunately, it is quite possible that you installed this adware program while installing a free software bundle.
Bundles are always risky to install if you do not read the license agreement properly or you do not pay close attention to the screens of the installation wizard. Such an installer may reveal its true content only when you choose the Custom or Advanced option, if there is any offered. However, most users tend to go for the Quick installation option, which is obviously always recommended by these installers. So, if you overlook the checkboxes where you could deselect certain components, you can easily install all the content by default. Such a bundle may pack potentially unwanted programs, Trojans, keyloggers, backdoors, browser hijackers, and, of course, adware applications. No wonder why it is dangerous to install such a bunch as these infections can cause multiple virtual security threats by exposing you to questionable third-party web content, for example. You can get infected by a bundle if you download free files from suspicious torrent and freeware pages, if you click on corrupt third-party ads and links, or when your PC has been infected already with adware and other malware threats capable of displaying third-party content. We advise you to scan your computer with an online malware scanner you can trust right after you delete Weather Inspect from your system.
This application looks like a useful tool to display the local weather information for you on your screen. However, in the background it installs other processes to display potentially unreliable third-party advertisements. These ads could take you to websites with adult content, online gaming pages, fake flash update pages, technical support scam pages, but you may as well drop another bundle of "surprises" onto your system. Engaging with any of the unreliable advertisements could cause further infections and worse, you could land on fake websites posing as online shops, for example, and you could share your credit card details with criminals. The latter would clearly end with your losing money from your bank account, which is probably one of the worst things that can happen to you in the virtual world. We believe that it is important that you remove Weather Inspect from your computer if you would like to keep your PC clean and secure.
It is possible that you can uninstall this adware threat via Control Panel if you can identify it in the list of installed programs. However, we have included manual instructions for you below this article, if you would like to stop this threat with your own hands. It is really not that complicated to eliminate this adware infection. But what about all the rest of the possible threats on your system? Do you think you can identify and erase them all without leftovers? If you want to make sure that your computer is all clean, we suggest that you employ a reliable anti-malware program like SpyHunter. But even if you are wise enough to protect your PC with such a security tool, you should not forget about updating all your programs and drivers as well if you want to keep cyber criminals away.
