Disabling location on Android - problems

Ok, this is bugging me. I was using the HTC weather program on my One V. All was good - I had three places in the list.

Then... I don't know what I did, but "Current Location" appeared as the first place in the list. It's different from my "actual location". It wasn't there before, I don't want it there, it's useless. I'm *guessing* it's trying to guess by my IP address at home.

I have all three location services turned off - Google's location service, GPS satellites, Location & Google search.

This is Android 4.0.3

The Google/Weather Channel program I have changed the settings - unticked "Use my location" and then set where I actually am, and it works for a bit but then decides to update to somewhere else. WHY GOD WHY?

I just want you to stay where I tell you!

Any ideas?
