i'm so green i don't know where to find the imfo needed to tell you about my system what i can say is i bought this pc refurbished ,brought it back because it was a real dog ,they installed a new hard drive ,so i have 2 hard drives i keep bringing it back to techs and they say it works fine ,it does for about 20 min. then i get localbackproxy not working properly messages ,there is also a strange straining like sound coming from tower during this event,then i start the low disk space stuff and it just turns into a battle after that between me and pc.
i found by accident somewhere in help program that my hard drives are operating on ms-dos,
i keep trying to get through to the techs that i don't think second hard drive is registering that i infact do have a lot of free space.
i'm afraid to piddle with own repairs as i have no software if i loose windows me or norton.

is localbackproxy message referring to piggybacked hard drive?

Deban, When Does The Error Occur?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / January 30, 2006 12:03 AM PST

Which operating system are you using? (Windows 98? Windows 2000? Windows XP? (RIGHT click on "My Computer", choose "Properties". The "General" tab will then tell you which operating system you're using.) What type of internet connection do you use? Dial-Up? DSL? Cable?

If the error occurs when you're attempting to access the internet in Internet Explorer, please try this: Open the Control Panel, then double click on the "Internet Options" icon. When that loads, click on the "Connections" icon, then click on the "LAN Settings" button. UNCHECK ALL the boxes in that window, then click on "OK", Apply, then OK.

Next, please give us the entire and EXACT errors you are receiving. When do you see the "low disk space stuff" and EXACTLY what does it say?

Hope this helps and let us know more.

For me the problem appears on startup and moastly on shutdown. I did a search on my computer and found a "LuCallbackproxy" in C:\Programfile\Symantac\liveupdate Could this be the "localbackproxy" that is giving the error problem??? I have not contacted Symantac Yet about this but does loo like a Norton Prpblem

I am also having the same problem, and it doesn't just occur when signing in or logging off, but can pop up at any time. I have contacted Symantec for assistance,but only got a confirmation that my message was received, but no help as yet. My operating system is Windows ME, but I can't see where that would make a difference. Can you help?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
