Where does My Weather Radar come from?

Before we tell you about one of the main reasons why we suggest that you should delete My Weather Radar, let us tell you about the official channels where you can install this tool directly. First of all, there is the official webpage, This page is very similar to others in this family as it is just as simplistic. If you press the Continue button, you can install this PUP directly after you click "Add extension" on the pop-up window that reveals the permissions you have to give to this extension. We highly recommend that you always read these carefully because you may change your mind in time seeing what kind of rights a tool can have. The other source is the Chrome web store at Still, we believe that it is quite difficult to land on any of these sites knowingly. If you search the web or even the store for weather-related tools, it is most likely that you will not find this PUP in the first results pages. Yet, this may not be a reason for you to delete My Weather Radar.

What is really bad about this PUP is that schemers also distribute it via freeware bundles. While there are obviously legitimate software packages containing authentic and useful free programs, unfortunately, cyber crooks also like to use this method to spread all kinds of threats. This is exactly how a lot of unsuspecting computer users infect their machine with adware programs, browser hijackers, Trojans, and PUPS as well. If you would like to prevent such a damaging package from landing on your system, you should stay away from suspicious websites like torrent, freeware, gaming, betting, and video streaming pages. These are the ones that are mostly related to unsafe third-party advertising. One click on the wrong ad or fake content (button or notification), and you can drop a bundle just like that. We advise you to delete My Weather Radar and scan your PC with a trustworthy online malware scanner to see how the infection situation is.

How does My Weather Radar work?

This PUP sets as your homepage, new tab page, and default search engine in your browsers. In fact, it can affect three major browsers, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer. This tool is indeed a search page with easy access to weather forecast-related websites, which are available on its fake toolbar as well as in a row of thumbnail links situated below the search box. It is important for us to mention that you can use the built-in bookmarking function anytime you would like to have a preferred website quickly reachable. In other words, you do not need a questionable tool for these links.

What is even worse about this PUP is that it promotes a questionable search engine, which redirects your searches to its server and then, to a Yahoo search results page where you could be introduced to potentially risky ads and links. No wonder why a reputable search engine like Yahoo is used by these schemers to make you believe that you can trust the results. Unfortunately, you may be taken to malicious websites or you could drop infections if you were to click on compromised content. This is why we believe that it is important that you remove My Weather Radar from your computer.
