    Under my control panel's add/remove page I see something called "backweb". Should I uninstall this? What is it?
    If I type backweb into my find utility it shows nothing under this name. Just wondering? Thanks.

    hmm I read on a yahoo search and I found that it seemes to be one of those, INSTALL AND BRING GREAT MULTIMEDIA TO YOUR PC kind of apps. Kind of fishy remove it see what happens. Or if you wanna be safe download spy bot search and destroy or ad-ware, ony one of those will find spam software or spy software.

    Then Please Download and install SpyBot,

    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/

    click the online tab to search for and download the updates, then shut down and relaunch SpyBot.

    Go to the Settings tab > File Sets, and uncheck 'System Internals' and 'Tracks' .
    These aren't needed for our present purpose, and you can always experiment with them later on.

    Finally, after closing down Internet Explorer, click 'Check for problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds 'Fix selected problems'

    you may have to run spybot more than once to clear everything

    Remove everything pre-ticked in Red

    Then please post another startup list
