spyware question

A few days ago, I did my usual weekly scan with Spybot Search & Destroy. When booting up the next time, and each time after, I get a message on the screen that says, "Runner Error-Invalid backweb application ID 137903." What is this, is it harmful and how do I get rid of it? I've used Spybot for over a year and have never had this happen prior to now.

Something else.. if this is your situation and you need to keep backweb I think Spybot can be set to ignore it in future scans.
