    I have an unknown icon in the notification area. It's a circle of dots (similar to the mac waiting icon) and when I click on it it says loading data, please wait... and it stays there forever.

    Any ideas on how to find out what it is and kill it?

    I've used various task killers and they will kill all the apps, but this icon still remains.

    Have you tried pulling the battery?

    that sounds like weatherbug trying to update. go to your app tray and open weatherbug and the notification will change to the temperature in your city.

    Thanks for the tip. I uninstalled WeatherBug, and the loading data icon in the notification area disappeared immediately. It had been bugging me since I installed it, and it was draining the battery. Thanks.
