Wonderful Weather

What is Wonderful Weather

Wonderful Weather, as you could guess by now, is adware. It belongs to a special category of programs that can do nothing well, as it was developed to achieve a sole goal: to irritate you. Of course, the mere annoyance is not its final aim, but you'll be annoyed in any case while Wonderful Weather does its job – displays the advertising content. Instantly after the infection, it modifies the browser settings and delivers you as many ads as you can handle and even more, making sure that they've attracted your attention. Fraudsters get a couple of cents for each click you’ve made, so you can understand why the ads keep coming: it’s pure money. In the sections below, we will tell you in which manner adware got onto the workstation and how it might be protected against similar viruses. If you’re not interested and simply want to delete the virus ASAP – don't mind the following parts and look at the removal tips.

Immediately after the infestation, Wonderful Weather modifies the settings of the browsers. That's its most important function, because the main role in this system is passed to the scammers' search engine which takes over your browser when you install Wonderful Weather. So, Wonderful Weather alters your pre-set homepage, as well as the default search and puts the unreliable search instead of them. After that, instead of using the reliable Yahoo, Google, Bing or any other search you're used to – you will surf the Web through the wretched Wonderful Weather tool that shows irrelevant results advertising banners pop-up windows and other suchlike trash. Another Wonderful Weather's goal is to alter the settings of the shortcuts of your browsers so that in case you return the regular settings, you'll see the fake search as the starting tab.

If you've already tried to erase Wonderful Weather, you could realize that it returns, no matter how many times you eliminated it. It occurs thanks to the virus' defensive mechanisms, and we'll unriddle to you how they function:

  • The easiest technique of protection is to make a scheduled task on the reinstallation of Wonderful Weather if the operator had erased it. Such tasks are not typically used by common computer owners, so Wonderful Weather just sets a task to inspect if it’s working, and if it isn't – to get and install it one more time. The task is being executed after each restart, and thanks to it Wonderful Weather is so hard to remove.
  • The second method is very much like the first one, but it uses the system registry instead of the Scheduled Tasks service. Scammers create a specific entry to the registry and you have to detect and remove it, which might be difficult. The regular registry values are needed for the computer to work, and by clearing any of them, you may inflict significant damage to the OS.

 

How Wonderful Weather was installed in the system

To make easier for you, we will picture the process in total. 99% of the advertising programs are clones of each other, duplicated countless times and passed to third-grade fraudsters with lesser changes made. Some bad lads got this particular copy from the Dark Web, tuned it and published it on file-exchanging services around the Net. And after that, you came and downloaded it. Wait, you're saying that you haven't looked for a utility that will drive you mad? Possibly, you wanted some method to spoil your machine, and received a direct link to Wonderful Weather download? Missed again? OK, then, it could be another program that's actually helpful. Some toll-free program from an unknown developer, or a cracked copy of some paid tool you just don't want to purchase.

This manner is known as “affiliate installation”, and it means that scammers unite the installation files of several perilous programs and one helpful utility into one installer. The core feature of this bundle is that it’s called by the name of a good program, and you cannot see its content until the installation starts. On some of the stages, you see an offer to install additional viruses, with all checkmarks placed and the mouse cursor already hovers over “proceed”. We assume that you proceeded, as you're reading our guide. It might have been a little different: there could be the “installation methods”. It's pretty simple: the veteran installation method is literally a choice of a folder for a utility to be established, and how many extra utilities do you need. In Wonderful Weather's case, picking the easy installation means that you let all the viruses from the viral installer into the computer.
