WeatherWizard is not as useful as it might seem at first sight. Even though it will really provide you with the information about the weather (e.g. humidity, wind, Feels Like, Wind Direction, Visibility, and Precipitation) in your area after you enter a ZIP code, you should know that it is still classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP). Therefore, it would be best that you find another tool for checking the weather forecast. WeatherWizard is put into this category not without a reason. It has been observed that it might really perform undesirable activities. We are sure that you will know what we are talking here about if you have WeatherWizard installed. Do not worry; you can delete this program from the system yourself. This will not be very difficult to do; however, if you need some help with that, you should read the article from beginning to end attentively.
It seems that WeatherWizard is primarily targeted at users living in the USA because it shows the weather forecast only if a user enters 5-digit US Zip code. Of course, users living in other countries might encounter it too because it is easily available on the web. There is no doubt that this potentially unwanted program is installed on your system if you can locate the Weather Wizard folder in %Program Files% or %Program Files(x86)%. These folders will contain such files as Weather Wizard.url, WeatherApp.exe, Newtonsoft.Json.xml, and Newtonsoft.Json.dll. On top of that, this program will also add executable files (e.g. SysFix.exe, MyTrayApp.exe, winLoad32.exe, and others) to the %Windir% directory. As can be seen, WeatherWizard does not hide its presence.
Research carried out by the specialists at pcthreat.com has shown that WeatherWizard provides rather accurate information about the weather because it uses data available on wunderground.com; however, we still cannot say that this program is very decent because it has been observed that it might perform several undesirable activities as well. First of all, it has been observed that the sc.bat file sets two Scheduled Tasks without asking permission. Secondly, specialists have managed to find out that amdave64Win.exe and some other files are responsible for a number of Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) errors. Yes, WeatherWizard will display them for you (see an example below) in order to convince you to contact the Technical support by the given number (1-855-331-6483):
Unfortunately, many users contact the Technical support because they cannot close the BSOD errors themselves and believe that something is really wrong with their PCs. Do not worry; the truth is that the message is fake and you can easily close it if you tap Alt+F4. In case you contact the so-called Technical support, you might be asked to pay a particular sum of money for their help. In addition, you might also be asked to provide personal information, which means that there is a risk that your privacy will be violated. We want to protect you from danger, so we do not recommend dialing the number.
There is, of course, one more reason why WeatherWizard is not the most trustworthy software for checking the weather forecast. It has been observed that this program is capable of connecting to the Internet without permission and thus downloading updates from simplemediaplayer.com. As it is capable of downloading updates whenever its wants to, there is a risk that it will become much worse in the future.
We have not managed to find out the official website of WeatherWizard, so we are sure that this program comes in software bundles. Unfortunately, there is a really huge possibility that this program does not travel alone, which means that other undesirable programs might be installed on your system too. In most cases, potentially unwanted programs travel together with adware, browser hijackers, and other PUPs. Do not forget to take care of these threats too after you get rid of WeatherWizard. Of course, the easiest way to do that is to use an automatic tool.
If you do not want to keep WeatherWizard installed, you should follow our step by step instructions. As you can see, you will have to get rid of this potentially unwanted program via Control Panel and then erase the remaining files. We hope that instructions which you will find below will help you. If not, use an automatic malware remover, such as SpyHunter, for this matter.
