Ads by Cool GetWeather displayed in your web browsers are a signal of an adware infection that is currently affecting your entire system. Cool GetWeather is as a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) that has adware capabilities and developed for the purpose of displaying intrusive online advertisements. Users may unintentionally install Cool GetWeather as they were misled to believe it is a useful plugin, but in reality, it is an ad-supported PUP. In other cases, users might install Cool GetWeather inadvertently via freeware downloads. Regardless of the means of distribution, Cool GetWeather would keep a record of users' online activities and promote irritating advertising materials. Ads by Cool GetWeather are considered unreliable as they are based on collected information from each user. Computer security experts do not advise users to keep Cool GetWeather installed on their system as adware-related applications tend to attract more of their kind, and that may result in a rather sluggish computer.
