I believe Weather bug is known for search engine replacement. Actually, many of "free" weather /mp3/downloader apps are there only to replace search engines.

Reset the IE settings



Click on the start button . Type the following command in the Search programs and files box

Code:
inetcpl.cpl
Internet Options dialog box appears.
Click the Advanced tab.
Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset. Then click Reset again.

Click to select the Delete personal settings check box if you also want to remove browsing history, search providers, Accelerators, home pages, Tracking Protection, and ActiveX Filtering data.
When Internet Explorer finishes resetting the settings, click Close in the Reset Internet Explorer Settings

Yahoo toolbar won't uninstall I think that's the issue, when I uninstalled it said I didn't have proper rights to remove it. I ran adwcleaner again and it found more stuff.

Are you trying to uninstall it from Control Panel ? Try using RevoUninstaller .

Did that twice, I turned off system restore as maybe the adware kept on coming back, I'm still working on it now.

That's a good thing to do . Turning off the System Restore. Most adware and viruses hide in there . We could always turn that back on when we get the PC cleaned.

Thanks I figured it was a issue with that since it won't go away.
