Help! Recently I always receive the WeatherBuddy pop-up on my browser. I wonder why this happens. I have tried setting my browser to block pop-ups but it does not help fix this problem. I have AVG installed on my computer but this tool cannot help block the annoying pop-up, either. What is WeatherBuddy? How can I remove it from my PC?
