I have an hp printer, and a logitech camera and the date created is consistant with when I installed the two on my system
It installed itself (in XP Pro) to a *Hidden Folder* under Documents&Settings\{me-the-user}\Local Settings. Why hide if it's legit?
tempiadhide = temp i ad hide. Looks dangerous when it is spread apart....
My computer became infected with VUNDO which placed files everywhere. I thought I had the problem solved using several removal utilities. Wrong! My anti virus program pops up stating Vundo is seeking accesss. The file path ended with TempIadhide.dll. It does not appear to be associated with any program. The auther is Backweb. I believe it to be malware.
It's a driver for Kodak and Logitech web cams, no problem at all.
