This program used to be favorite weather program until version 3.0. It takes about 5 times longer to load than older versions.

Seems to be an ok program. I didn't have any trouble with it seeing my cable Internet connection and it does work outside of the USA.

Not terribly effieicent. Although a good Idea, to filter web contect, it takes close to 4-5 additional seconds to view a webpage. On broadband, this is something I am not going to ever get used to. Sure!...this is a wonderful tool for a parent, for for the rest of us degenerates out there that want protection from clandestine websurfers, but still enjoy 'all' web content, stick with the previous version.

No new improvements other than the one dealing with web contect filtering, so wait for the next update, skip this one if youre 'of age'...otherwise, hope your parents dont put this on your PC! haha

In order to register, you must supply them with a great deal of personal information, on an insecure web page, and most likely, they will be selling this information to several varied 3rd parties. Freeware??? Not hardly! It's a program bought and paid for, by filling out a form. I uninstalled it again. Tried it once before. Believe I uninstalled it for the same reason. Also, the program is unable to detect my internet connection. Probably since my firewall won't allow it. Not a secure program!

this program not only works great it also looks good. And even international locations are supported, so I could choose Rotterdam. This one is definitely here to stay!

The hour-by-hour forecast makes this worth the download.

This file is merely a stub installer that initiates downloading
program files. There was a problem once installed getting me registered. I found the desktop weather registration page via Google and now it works fine. It would be easier to go to www.weather.com, register, and then install. Cycling of different type weather maps is the best feature. I like it!

This has to be the best weather program yet.. It must be because its from The Weather Channel!

Why use Windowblinds?

Always a valid question, since it has historically been far more trouble that it was ever worth. But now, with StyleXP, the question is almost comical.

Answer: Don't use Windowblinds. Ever.

I have no idea why this program thinks I am not connected to the internet. I'm using a working cable modem. and what's with the email registration?
