    Someone at CJ clicked on the wrong category for their newest merchant, The Weather Channel. It has them down under the Cosmetics/Fragrance category.

    Well, what do I know, maybe that is the closest category they could come up with.

    Putting perfume on the BHO adware/spyware pig is probably close to it's proper category. Had to remove their downlaod crap from the neighbors system yesterday.

    Any affiliate putting up a weather channel link aught to be tarred and feathered.

    The Weather Channel freebee is just like the Gator password/form filler app ...both have the hidden adware/spyware payload hidden in their download.

    Desktop weather does not include any spyware as noted in their splash page. http://www.weather.com/services/desk...homewxanywhere

    The free version shows ads and the paid version does not. That's very common these days with any free software (e.g. Opera).
