Wallpaper keeps coming back

I have taken the steps you suggest but the wallpaper keeps coming back on the next update.
Any solution?


sector, which version of Weather Watcher are you using? Please post a picture of the “Wallpaper” section of your Weather Watcher Options window.

I just downloaded WW last night from CNET. I followed the instruction for removing the wallpaper per your FAQ’s. Did not work! I tried to uninstall the entire program and was unable to turn WW off. Not real happy

jayscrivener, are you saying that Weather Weather continued to change your wallpaper? I’d be happy to help if you can give me some detailed information.
