no internet backweb 1940576

by mike1191 / June 16, 2007 10:27 AM PDT

hi, I have a problem connecting to the internet. A few days ago, I removed trojans, did a virus scan, spyware scan, etc, because I downloaded this piece of junk software from an unknown site. Anyways, after I restarted, I noticed that I cannot connect to the internet, plus I get this window that says:

Backweb 1940576

Windows cannot open

The Backweb That Came Installed On HP....
by tobeach / June 16, 2007 4:47 PM PDT

Laptop (New) was described(whitewashed) as Update Manager. Same program was loaded by Logitech Mouse & keyboard drivers disk.
It is at least spyware. It sends back collected info at every internet connection. If you remove it and then manually check for updates, it will be re-installed first before anything else upon connection.

4 files of it were found via Start>Run>search all files & folders (show hidden files checked).

Ran Spybot Search & Destroy 1.4 and it found 47 files & folders of
Backweb!!!!
I set HP update & Logitech Update to manual & then had Spybot remove ALL instances of it.
Computer worked just fine without the 47 !!
If this is same, suggest you get, update & run Spybot to remove and then run again after checking for possible HP updates manually. Remove any newly re-installed Backweb(if any found by Spybot).Spybot (Free):
