A lot more now since Googling Backweb!
You people realize you're supposed to be rating how dangerous backweb is, not how annoying it is. It isn't adware, it isn't spyware, HP uses it for updates and sometimes it messes things up. I disable it, but calling it a virus is stupid.
HP - compaq (I don't Know if others do the same)come with lots of thithtparties programms. some can be removed, some not but can be desable
From my understanding, it's a product from hp that updates without your approval; in the backround, just as a virus does. I went into regedit and deleted all the keys that had to do with backweb, after disabling its process, and shredded all the files that had to do with it. Now, after removing Back-web and other adware my computer runs ALOT faster.
I am no expert but it wants to access the internet a lot. I think it has affected my Hp Media center and it can't update cable programming.
Slows down my computer and does absolutely nothing. Tried to uninstall and now every five minutes a window pops up. Had to go into safe mode to get rid of lingering files.
the freezes are a real problem for my neighbor's hp Pavillion. hp suggests disabling it from the start All Programs hp Center folder.
