Do you know what SysWeatherAlert is?
SysWeatherAlert is an application that should be removed from the system immediately despite its promises to enable users to “get weather updates.” You should erase this program from your system even though it claims that it is “the best online channel for weather” as well. The reason why we suggest getting rid of this software is quite simple – SysWeatherAlert is a completely useless application that does not work at all. In other words, we are sure that it will not do anything beneficial. It is very likely that its main goal was to convince users to download it by pretending to be a useful application for checking the weather forecast. As SysWeatherAlert is a completely useless program, you should erase it right now if you are sure that it is installed on your computer. If you let it stay, it might not only display tons of annoying commercials for you, but might also expose you to potential threats. The only way to make sure that it cannot cause harm to your PC is to delete this program from the system.
As the Download button is not working on the official website of SysWeatherAlert, it is very likely that this program tends to sneak onto computers rather secretly as well. Our specialists are sure that this program does not always inform users that it is going to enter, which explains why users do not know when and how it appeared on their computers. Actually, it is quite hard not to notice the presence of this program because it adds its main folder to %PROGRAMFILES% (%PROGRAMFILES(x86)%) and also creates a Value ProcessSysWeatherAlert in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run in order to be able to start working together with Windows OS. These are, of course, not all the changes this software is going to apply.SysWeatherAlert screenshot

Even though it does not work as it should, i.e. it does not provide the weather forecast, it does not mean that it does not work at all. According to specialists, it is very likely that users will still see various commercial advertisements appearing on their screens because SysWeatherAlert is known to be an ad-supported program. These ads might not look harmful at all; however, the truth is that they might contain links of bad websites inside them, and a user who clicks on any of those ads might be taken to an unreliable third-party web page. Furthermore, it has been observed too that the application is going to gather information about users. Remember, your information might be recorded on third-party websites as well, so you should be very careful. In our opinion, it would be best to reduce the possibility of ending up on those unreliable websites. One of the things you can do is to delete SysWeatherAlert from the system. We are sure that you will not miss it because there are other trustworthy applications for checking the weather forecast on the web. Feel free to download one instead after getting rid of SysWeatherAlert.
