    I have "The Weather Channel" widget and every time I click on it, it crashes my Dashboard Client. In trying to fix the problem I was going to get rid of the widget and re-download it but I can't find it anymore.

    Has this widget been removed? Is this why it's crashing the client?

    That's odd. Have you looked in ~/Library/Widgets for the widget file?

    I'm also experiencing this as of yesterday. Same widget, same experience, first problem I've ever had with it. Strange.

    I don't see it in the directory but it's still in the list of widgets I can choose. This is super confusing since I didn't delete or remove the file. Even more so, is that there are some widgets I have on my desktop like Fetch which I can't find in that directory either but seem to work without issue.

    Same thing here on 2 different machines. The widget seems to have been removed from apple.com as well.

    Perhaps The Weather Channel started uploading pornographic maps and Apple pulled it for violating its SDK?
