How to Delete the Weather Channel

by Jesse Lanclos

The Weather Channel desktop application provides Windows users with current conditions, severe weather alerts, the current temperature in your system tray and more. The Weather Channel allows you to download the application for free, but it does contain advertising. After you've tried the software, you may remove it from your system using the uninstall program provided within the download. Because of a bug in the uninstall program, you may need to move it to a different location for it to properly uninstall all components of the program.

Hold down "Ctrl" and press "E" to open Windows Explorer. Click on "My Computer," then on "C:" in the left pane of Windows Explorer. Double-click on "Program Files," then on "The Weather Channel FW," then on "Framework." Right-click on "Unwise.exe" and select "Copy." In the left pane, right-click on "Desktop Weather" and select "Paste" to move the uninstall program to the correct location.

Click on "Start" in the lower left of your screen. Then click on "Settings," followed by "Control Panel." Then select "Add/Remove Programs." Scroll down to the Weather Channel application and select "Add/Remove." Follow the on-screen directions to uninstall the Weather Channel desktop.

Click on "Start," then "Settings," then "Control Panel." Double-click on "Desktop Weather" and click on "Uninstall Weather Services." This removes the remainder of the Weather Channel desktop program.
