    Every time I turn my system on, I get an error box that says "Invalid Back Web Application ID137903" Can any one tell me how to fix this?

    Well i did a search on "Invalid Back Web Application ID137903". And it brought back webpages that referred to spyware and how to remove it. So i suggest downloading, installing and updating Spybot, ad-aware and spywareblaster. All of which are found in my signature. Hopefully that should clear it up. post back with your how you go after doing that.

    I downloaded spyware blaster 3.2. I will get back to you on this one when I see how well it does. I do like all the things it has to offer.
    Thanks Zmaster

    i do recommend downloading both of the other programs aswell. My understanding of spyware blaster is that it doesn't remove the spyware thats already on your computer it only stops it from loading it onto your computer from once its installed.

    I downloaded the spyware blaster and am highly impressed with it. I already have the spybot and have used hijack this several times. As for the Lavasoft Adaware, I had to uninstall it when I downloaded that SP2. I wasnt able to get that back as I was the spybot. When I turned the puter on this morn, I got the same error message. So I dont think the spy bot had anything to do with it, I have tried ot do some research on it too and have come up with nothing. Maybe a senior member or moderator can assist us in this.

    The last time I got backweb was when I installed some lousy Kodak software. I removed it by finding and deleting the .exe file then searching the registry and removing every item that mentioned backweb. (All that after I ran Spybot and AdAware)

    If you are referring to what I posted....to clarify...I have not installed SP2 as of yet and don't intend to until MS gets it sorted out.

    Ok Wimpy.......what can Regestry Mechanic do for me on that back web thang? I own a license to Reg Mech of PC Tools. I will giv it a run and see what it comes up with. As for SP2. I have already crashed my system because of it and it took me a week to get my system back uup and running. I have to give "Thanks" to TSG members for that one!

    I'm not sure what it can do for you as I have never used it. I have used others and they always miss a few lines in the registry. Once again I manually removed "backweb.exe" through explorer, then ran Norton Win Doctor (same idea as Reg mech.). Then searched the registry and deleted any item pertaining to backweb. Worked for me.

    Good. Now I suggest you search for a file called "backweb.exe" and delete it if you find it.

    OK Wimpy, my problem has yet to be solved as I started drinking champagne before the race was over. I am thinking I need to look in my prgogram files. I am betting that you are going to tell me that its somewhere else.

    Yup I will..... :eek: Click "start", then "search", then select "all files and folders". Then type in the name backweb.exe and hit search or ok, whatever shows up. When the search stops delete all references that mention backweb.
    Let me know how you make out. :cool:

    Well Wimpy, I did as you instructed and did several types of searches. the search found no reference to or containing "backweb.exe" (scratches head in confusion and flips a burger on the grill for Wimpy)
