    Hi
    After updaing spybot today, I run a scan and it found 61 entries named "Backweb Lite" in the registry. As usual I deleted all. Now this error appears after every restart:
    Any help please! Thanks

    I would definetly suggest you change your habit of deleting all items until you have checked further in Forums such as this for possible False positives....or understand why Spybot indeed flags Backweb Lite and that you might consider ignoring said entries the next time. While Backweb Lite can be mis-used....it is also found in numerous valid\legit programs....Kodak, HP/Compaq, F-secure and Logitech....to name a few.

    Hi Stephanos G.
    Hi Bubba
    That is because I have developed a kind of a "trust" to spybot due to many years of use. unfortunately!!!

    That trust should remain. Simply because programs such as Spybot flag a program because it fits their criteria for Spyware\Adware does not mean the developers are infatically saying to the user to delete any and all entries Spybot finds. Backweb lite is similar to certain keyloggers they have in their database....or programs such as Comet Cursor. They are hoping that when certain items such as that are flagged on a users machine....that the users will be knowledgeable about what's on their machine and simply make their own personal decision to thank Spybot for notifying them....but choose to ignore the item in future scans because they want Backweb or certain keyloggers or Comet Cursor.

    Thanks Bubba. I usually run it on daily bases. why it detected them on today's update only. Any way every thing is ok now because I back the registry every week. thanks ERUNT

    That is the main thing and glad it's now OK for ya. You might want to take a look at un-checking BackWeb lite from further scannning via Mode\Advanced Mode\Settings\Ignore Products. It will be listed under the tab labeled PUP(Possible Unwanted Program).
