Comes with software of HP, Logitech and others to keep software up-to-date. Downside: There are spyware versions of the same file. William

the name implies malicious intent to me ..Quarintine it!!! Richard Tiano
Backweb is used by f-secure. It is also used by Trojan builder's to collect info and bypass processes. This one, seems to operate by installing hooks. I had one from backweb inc. that forced the f-secure AV to always register clean on scan but crash the AS as well as spybot. This particular varient I got from Logitech. It was dropped 2 weeks after installation which makes it a dropper and a logic bomb.
trojan / ad-aware - comes with BackWeb - should remove  See also: Link Am
appeared recently, i don't have logitech's software and been using f-secure about a year so can't be f-secure. Everything implies that it is trojan or worm Enigma
This file comes up with google information from this site, but the other backweb file that runs with it doesn't. All Logitech devices work fine with out it. Quarintine it and it's little evil friend.
basically if you recently aquired a loagitech file its fine
It's a part of backweb, which is a "legitimate" background updating tool. Backweb isn't an issue, though the program it is updating may be. If you find you have backweb on your system then I suggest that rather than worrying about backweb, you worry about what installed it... and make a decision based on that particular program, not its updater.

used by logitec; if you dont have or havent used any logitec ahrdware i suggest you uninstall it [can be used as spyware] but otherwise if you do have any logitec devices, keep it, cause then its most likely valid[and they wont work properly if you uninstall it]
It loaded when I installed the pilot and utility files for my new mouse Logitech MX1000 Laser. Phil

I installed Logiteh MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse, but it appeared just when I restored my system before installing this mouse and then undid this restoring - when I logged on as limited user, on screen appeared "it has a problem to run BackWeb.exe" Juraj Kalus Delviar
