Looking to uninstall AccuWeather application from your Windows 7 operating system and there is no entry in the “Programs and Features” panel for the application. Also, there is no entry in the Start Menu. Not having any luck searching for a solution on how to uninstall the application. Well here is how I unistalled the AccuWeather application:
Close the application from the desktop.
Shutdown the process (accuweather.exe *32) from the Windows Task Manager – Processes Tab:

Locate the AccuWeather application files. I just used windows search “AccuWeather” as the key to locate the files. The files were located in the following location on my computer:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell Stage\Dell Stage
AccuWeather File Location
Delete the files.
Now it is time to remove the start up reference. Open the System Configuration utility ( Window run “msconfig” or just type “system Configuration” in the Windows Start Menu Search Programs and Files search bar ). Navigate to the “Start Up” tab and uncheck the “Accuweather” entry.
Kick back, relax and live the dream.
Programming imitates life. Challenges are beset in front of us and we must overcome them. Mistakes are made and we must learn from them. We must evolve or become obsolete.
In our world, the challenge can be learning how to effectively use a new technology, optimizing a SQL query, troubleshooting a new technical issue, solutioning a new business requirement, overcoming the limiting repercussions on technology created by the bureaucracy of corporate policy limiting the innovation of technology, etc.
We all make mistakes (me maybe more than others). Do not be afraid of making a mistake. Similar to a diamond being formed from the constant pressure exerted on coal, we mature as a programmer from the constant pressure of resolving our mistakes and learning from them.
In aiding others in resolving their quandaries we become teachers. In our personal quest to improve we evolve and inspire others in their journey. To aid our brothers in arms and inspire them during their journey is the mark of greatness.
I’m a software programmer (Solution Savant). I have had the pleasure of working for several high profile companies: USAF, USN, Principal Group and Wells Fargo. I have no delusions of grandeur merely the desire to help those I can and learn from those willing to teach.
Live to code. Live by the code.
