weatherbug, DOES contain adware.
Minibug is software that reports weather information from a taskbar utility. It downloads the larger ad-supported Weatherbug application. The Minibug is likely ad-supported as well. however is manually installed....anyway you look at it, it is adware, the free version that is, and for you to spat that is an insult not only to security experts on, but not limited to, Symantec, bleepingcomputer, iamnotageek, .liutilities, tomcoyote, pchell, spywareinfo, etc, but to all of us trying our best to keep known crapware off the unsuspecting person(s) system(s). like p2p applications, most have adware, spyware bundled in the downloads, the others continue to dial out for some reason. just a handful (of the free ones) are not bundled, but no guarantee as to how clean the files are.
now, WeatherPulse by Tropic Designs is free of spyware/malware and is good replacement for anyone using Weatherbug. and, It's free.
