Hi hmiller,

May we know what is the behavior of this Local Weather Radar?

You may check the installed programs on your computer or try to check your browser's extension.

Regards,
Joemar

It placed a banner at the top of monitor. I have not used it but I believe it is some sort of search engine that may direct me to fake or directed web sites. A line periodically scrolls across that says " Type here to search" or "Start searching"  or "search here" or "Search the internet" or "looking for something?" It also seems to have slowed my computer down.

Good day hmiller.

What we need to do is to remove it on your computer and secure the web browsers. Here's how you can uninstall (Potentially Unwanted App) like the Local Weather Radar: Uninstalling Potentially Unwanted Applications (PUA) 
and here's how to reset the web browser.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Kree
