Where is the file?

Question

Weathercast.com has an auto installing program that functions like a pop-up add. If I recognize and close it quickly, I can prevent the install. But, it happens quickly and I don't always catch it. I know how to get rid of it, it comes with an unistall and I go into regedit. But, the program has self installed itself several times now and I am really tired of it.

Is this program a virus or something similar? I have Norton Antivirus, which is up to date, and it does not catch anything. Is there a way to prevent it auto-installing itself?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

John
