It tells me about Sensors, Disable or Enable Can not get it to disable it stays at enable. May be I have a Viirus, but I run virus protection every day.

Google finds this one: http://ceekam.com/blog/?p=787

It finds your IP-address. Then it searches in the big Internet database where approximately you are. Then it looks in another database what the current weather is.
Wouldn't it be simpler to just look through the windows and see if it rains or not?
