The Windows Session Console Weather

The Windows Session Console Weather has nothing to do with the weather because it does not even have a graphical user interface. We found that it is an adware-type program in disguise that was designed to show promotional links while you browse the web. You might want to remove this application because its ads are not only annoying and invasive but can be malicious as well because they can come from unknown advertisers. This program has nothing to offer and keeping it can pose a risk to your computer’s security, so you should act accordingly.

The Windows Session Console Weather might enter your computer secretly, and if it does, then it will render all kinds of ads inside your web browser. Our research suggests that it should render pop-ups, coupons, banners, in-texts, and other forms of advertisements. The ads generate revenue, and we think that this program should use a pay-per-click system which requires you to click the ad in order for The Windows Session Console Weather’s creators to get paid. Our research has shown that, in most cases, this program promotes surveys, but can also promote some potentially unwanted programs such as Sadooma, Advanced Mac Cleaner or MyDigitalCalendar Toolbar, for example. However, we believe that its developers do not shy away from promoting rather shady content that might include scam websites and sites that contain malware downloads. So, on the whole, The Windows Session Console Weather is one untrustworthy program.

We want to note that this particular adware differs from most adware in one particular aspect. We have found that it does not render advertisements all of the time. It has a built-in timer that will sometimes show you the ads. Furthermore, it seems that this program’s developers can alter the advertising campaign or replace it entirely because it would appear that this adware connects to a server that gives it instructions on what ads to show. Therefore, there is no telling when it will render malicious advertisements, and that is why you ought to get rid of it as soon as possible.

Now, let us discuss how this adware is distributed. We have received information that The Windows Session Console Weather might come bundled with malicious software bundles that are featured on rather shady free software hosting websites. It appears that the developer has made arrangements to have this adware bundled with third-party software that is installed by malicious installers that purposefully installs adware as well. However, you might be able to deselect the installation by unchecking its respective checkbox. The main executable is named wdscw.exe, and it will run in the background constantly. We suggest that you uninstall this program if you do not want to see any of its ads.

In closing, The Windows Session Console Weather is a typical adware-type program that is dedicated to showing advertisements that are annoying, but they might also be malicious sometimes, so we recommend that you remove it from your PC. Please consult the guide below on how to do that.
