This process is part of F-secure antivirus software and is used to update / download the virus definition database.

Totally harmless, it's the update program for f-secure software
Previously a process used by F-secure to deliver virus definitions. With newer versions, however, Backweb makes intrusion attempts on high ports at the same time it delivers the updates. Older versions of F-secure block these attempts as they were not programmed to co-operate. This is unfortunate as F-secure was a good program.

Best practices for resolving BackWeb-7681197 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with BackWeb-7681197. 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.
