| fact-the only time i get an error from this file is when i delete backweb using spybot search and destroy gene|
| This Programm also comes with the AnitVirus Prog F-Secure. It is located in a folder named "backweb" Note: backWeb.exe is a process associated with an application from Backweb Technologies. It comes bundled together with a large number of desktops and is used to detect and download available updates. So i think it's just for downloading updates. See also: Link Echtzeit0815|

Then I terminated all processes exept taskmngr.exe and system processes. Only fspex.exe did come back all the time. then I terminated the processtree. It helped an I got the AmericasArmy250.exe deleted. now my computer works as usually. Timppa from finland|

| F-Secure's own spyware. That can spy your open programs and passwords. Actually smells like shit that whole F-Secure! See also: Link Mr. President|
| It is definately to do with f-secure antivirus. It is an automatic updater for F-secure, so essential if you want to stay updated. |

| It is a part of the Charter High Speed Security Suite and should not be deleted from your startup as long as you use Charter Security suite. Tony|
| It is part of F-Secure and let's you update F-Secure. If you have F-Secure installed on your computer, this isn't dangerous. Charter also comes with F-Secure so if you get your internet from Charter this is also harmless. Otherwise this is a very dangerous application in disguise! Kyle|
