|Displays updates for Southwest Airlines flights. Does not come with an uninstall utility, runs at windows startup, difficult to delete manually. You must remove the 'run at startup' feature of this program from your windows registry and reboot before deleting the program's files which are usually located at program files/southwest airlines/ding - VERY annoying... :/ |
