    I am wonderng if anyone has an install file for weatherbug that is newer than version 2.7?

    I got a new computer at work and I want to install it again... but they block the download site on weatherbug.com
    weaterhbug no longer has a downloadable install file. Its a download and install at once.

    But, if I can get an older version it will auto update to the new version and that works from here. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I have version 2.7 here, but it is too old and doesnt auto update anymore.

    Can anyone help?

    Do not install weatherbug. Are you crazy, never install any of that [censored]. If it's on the internet and free it is either spyware or has a virus. Just go to weather.com

    I had it on my computer before and it worked great.
    Here they block all kinds of websites. I am lucky to get on CK5.

    It always worked, but just not the download page. So, I downloaded it from home and e-mailed it here and installed it. works great. now a new computer and I dont have a new enough version at home anymore. so, I need one from someone.

    yeah, whatever. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    So, my question still stands... does anyone have a version of weatherbug that is the full exe install that is newere than v2.7?

    It really is spyware. Took me forever to figure out why no matter what I did, I'd still have tons of spyware to wipe out. Once I deleted that little bastard, it went away. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I would remove it from your computer if I were you. If they specifically block something, and you circumvent thier security measure, depending on the company's policies, you may actually be setting yourself up for some kind of disciplinary action.
    I'm an IT guy. At the sites I operate, I have restrictions on specific exe's (weatherbug is one). If a user finds a way to circumvent the restriction, that user will have his/her machine locked down so ALL exe's are restricted except specific ones required for their job function. We also monitor for restriced processes...

    I'd tread carefully when it comes to messing with security policies in a company. Even something as dumb as installing weatherbug can become a big issue simply for the fact that it may have been restricted (the fact that you were able to pass the exe through email has me wondering if it or the site is actually restricted). Security has become a very high priority in the new digital world.

    When I saw the title for this thread I thought you needed some help to get rid of weatherbug. That thing is jam packed with spyware. Like the others have said, I suggest you get it off of your pc and definitely get it off of your work pc.
