Weather.exe no Orginal Virus
weather.exe is also the name of a process that has been trying to install trojans to my C:\Windows directory. Unless you know you've installed the WeatherBug, it's ok, but if it suddenly has appeared on your machine, remove it immediately.
Daily Weather Forecast\weather.exe is a troijan downloader. Sneaks itself on your computer
Installed via Weather Bug and you probably installed it yourself
AVG Antivirus reports Trojan embedded in this exe....
Malware that has nothing to do with weather.

even if you get it off your registry and delete all files, it gets installed again and again ¬¬
Well for starters, there are many weather.exe files out there. However, I aquired this file without knowing it and I received the infamous rogue program known as SpySheriff. Of course, many weather.exe's exist in weatherbug and other programs and are trustable, but if you find it in C:/ programfiles/ daily weather forecast , Delete it. Nuff said.
The "Free Weather" version of this exe is harmless. And even useful when its working right.
Program is OK. Have monitored port and traced all IP's and it is safe If you can buy it to get rid of advertisements
Installed with Platrium Games Program

Best practices for resolving weather issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with weather. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
