WW shall not terminate other applications

Dear Mike,

for example: when I type a letter in MS Word and WW updates the weather, my cursor disappears in the document which I am preparing and I keep on typing and typing, and nothing happes until I have a look at the document and realize that the active document in Word was stopped by WW.

I only found out today that the automated update of WW is making active applications inactive.

Can that be changed?

Thanks for your investigations and reply.
