    Did you try Add- Remove programs? Is there an uninstall feature in your Start menu associated with the program? Can you right click on it and shut it down? Have you looked for it in explorer? That's all I got, sorry.

    Yes, I've tried all the usual methods of locating the file on my computer. It doesn't even show up at all doing a search.

    Is this the Yahoo Weather Widget that has a weather picture on the sidebar of your desktop.

    This one is a free version from Weather.com but it is affiliated with Yahoo because the address bar shows : http://weather.yahoo.com/forecast/USIN0464.html

    The folowing is what I found on their site for uninstalling but since it is NOT listed in the ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS there is no way to carry out the uninstall per the instructions they give.

    Very frustrating....:mad:

    I FINALLY found the way to contact them. I sent an email question asking how to uninstall if I cannot find the file location.

    STAND BY........ Hopefully they will send a reply. :rolleyes:

    Gosh that must be really annoying. Did it come with any other Yahoo! programs?

    It looks like you have The Weather Channel Desktop.
    Control Panel>Add Or Remove Programs should show The Weather Channel Desktop, you said theres nothing there, so go to C:\Program Files\The Weather Channel FW
    both the Desktop Weather and Framework folders have UNWISE, you right click UNWISE>Open and the uninstaller will run.

    This sounds like malware, try PMing Cookiegal or another security expert and see if they can help remove it manually.

    have you tried taking it off your startup menu ? that way the program is still on your computer but won't start unless you click the program and you don't have it listed.
