    ok, i ran spybot and i found alot of problems, but the one that puzzled me was backweb lite, it says that it may have came with hp computers (i do have a hp) so if it found a problem with something that the company gave me would it be safe to remove it, or should i just leave it alone? o_O

    Hi Heath,

    Everything marked in Red is safe to remove.
    HP uses BackWeb Lite to check for updates automatically.
    The question being, do you want them to? The choice is always yours.

    Hi Heath,

    I see you registered. Which calls for an official:

    [glow=red,2,300]Welcome at Wilders.[/glow] :)

    About keeping BackWeb: whatever works best for you.

    Regards,

    Pieter
