    Follow these steps to uninstall Weather Watcher:

    Step 1:
    Make sure Weather Watcher is not running. Select "Exit" from the Weather Watcher system tray icon menu to shut down Weather Watcher.

    If Weather Watcher is running, but you cannot see the Weather Watcher system tray icon, then end the "WW.EXE" process in the Windows Task Manager. Also, close down any instances of "DL.EXE". You can access the Windows Task Manager by pressing ALT+CTRL+DEL.

    Step 2:
    Once Weather Watcher has been closed, run the uninstall program from the "Add/Remove" section of the Windows Control Panel, or from the "Weather Watcher" folder in your Windows Start menu. If you haven't installed a full version of Weather Watcher in a while, you might not see an uninstall entry for Weather Watcher in the "Add/Remove" section of the Windows Control Panel.

    Step 3:
    When you run Weather Watcher, it creates some files that contain your user settings. Since the uninstaller does not know those files exists, it will not remove them. You can manually remove them by deleting them from the following locations:

    What about the HKCU\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\Weather Watcher data in the Registry? Does the WW uninstall remove it also?

    Step 3 seems wrong, as the user settings look to be saved in c:\documents and settings\username\application data\weatherwatcher.
