Weather widget replacement for Windows 7

I work as an IT for a small business. And I believe that Microsoft once again has removed one more of their products that was sold to us. I keep getting tech support calls about weather widget not working on Windows 7 desktops installed in our offices. I need to replace this:



with something that actually shows a weather forecast and runs on a Windows 7 desktop.

Any ideas?

I swear, there must be a smart guy per every forum these days.

I'm asking someone's opinion on a good weather app and not how to use Google.

I wasn`t being smart, I did not realize you wanted me to find one for you, give me a second.

There`s one that looks just like the native weather app, that`s why I suggested google, you don`t have to be rude.

I recommend Weather Kelvin

What are your people using; IE11 with Windows 7?
If that's the case try checking the DPI settings, even if its IE10 with 7, those two browsers were not built for 7 and if the DPI is set too high they won't work.

I use Yo Window - it's very user-friendly and customizable.

YoWindow - Free download and software reviews - CNET Download.com

Make sure to click "custom" and uncheck any garbage it wants to add.

NEVER, EVER use third party download sites. They are widely known for purposely infect downloads with unwanted programs that create all sort of problems in user computers.

Use the official download site instead:
YoWindow - Weather with magic

That's just your opinion.

I've used Cnet for years and never had a problem.

There are several weather gadgets available in 8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 8 / 8.1 which latest version supports Windows 7.

There are reports the past few days that this is not working in Windows 7 now, after it's worked for some months with their latest version.
