This file appeared after install Kodak Easyshare
Appeared after installing Kodak software on a BRAND NEW computer that had never touched the internet. I was warned about it by Windows Firewall, again, prior to touching the outside world.
Backweb seems to continusouly try to update the kodak software on my users PC. It uses a cached password to get through the proxy and seems to be responsible for users being continuously locked out.

At startup I get a message that "shortcut to backweb-7288971.exe cannot be found" How can I get rif that message?
It is for KodaK Camera. But you dont want it runng. The software Kodak installs for the camera is poorly designed. If you have a firewall rule, just block it and get your updates for your software manually or go back and unblock it to get an update or patch then block it again. Any application that forces itself out to the internet is somewhat of a vulnerability.
It checks for updates after installing Kodak software. I have it on another computer also - No problems or issues.

Best practices for resolving backWeb-7288971 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with backWeb-7288971. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
