I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place or not. There's a message on my computer that says "BackWeb Plug-In. Outdated database version. Please exit and reinstall BackWeb."

Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this? It stays on my screen almost the whole time I'm on the computer.

Thanks!

Hi, The computer will not miss BackWeb, it's just a system of updating parts of Windows that is not needed/ Uninstall it from Add/Remove Programs.

Updates for things HP and other brands of computers come with-

http://www.castlecops.com/s356-BackWeb.html

If you do want it you can reinstall /download it but I need to know the brand of computer you are using.

I don't mind removing it if it's not needed, but I don't know what it's called in the control panel. Nothing there called Backweb Plug-in. If it helps, I have an HP, product #PX743AA-ABA and model #A1110n.

Thanks for your help!

Hi, I had the name wrong, sorry!

These days, it is called this: Updates from HP or Compaq Connections

from this page:


Right location, just the name is changed. There are not that many Updates that I've seen from HP, I have one here, too. I still have the BackWeb installed, and I set the settings in SpyBot to not detect it.
(I am pretty sure I disabled it from running somehow, long time ago)

If you look around you might find out the reason BackWeb is not updating itself... Note that you can reinstall BackWeb.

SpyBot and other spyware removers can remove this if the user does not understand what it is- though, SpyBot for one does not automatically remove it anymore, it does detect it.

Could be something like that happened to yours...I'm not sure.

I uninstalled the program, restarted and the same prompt is still there! Is there something else I should do to get rid of that bugger?

Thanks!

Hi, Use Start button > Run > type in this:

msconfig (and hit Enter key , or OK)

Look over to the right, under the Startups tab, is there anything in that list that points to BackWeb reminder, HP reminder or anything similar? Uncheck one that you find, if any. You will have to OK that change, and restart. You will see a window about the System Configuration Utility, tell it you will oversee things by setting the box in that window to not popup alerts at each startup.

Don't uncheck anything you are not sure about, in fact, you can post what ones you see that are related to the issue and we can advise you if they do seem to be the culprits, OK? Then you can use the msconfig to set one not to start and see if that one is producing the error about BackWeb.


Also, we would like to see a Hijackthis log, we may be able to spot something using a log:

go to Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then save the log and then the log will open in Notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

Hi, Is that the entire list in msconfig> Startups or the ones that are checkmarked to start up? Are there more there, uncheckmarked?

What we may need to do is reinstall the Updates from HP (or whatever it was called that you uninstalled from Add/Remove Programs....then, uninstall it.

Please do this, when you reply to that one question above:

Open Hijack This and click on the "Open the Misc Tools section" button. Click on the "Open Uninstall Manager" button. Click the "Save List" button. After you click the "Save List" button, you will be asked where to save the file. Pick a place to save it then the list should open in notepad. Copy and paste that list here.



You either get system Recovery discs with your computer, or you don't, can you tell me which is the case?

To reinstall any of the preinstalled software which includes Updates from HP or similar...you use the
All Programs> Hewlett Packard> HP Tools menu and it will prompt you as to how to reinstall any of the software that comes with your computer.

This page shows you exactly how it looks, for some HP computers, check the entire page down to the end, to learn just what HP Updates is and how it works. When it runs, it appears in the Task Manager.

http://www.hp.com/united-states/cpc/hp/updates_faq.html#6

Start, All Programs, PC Help & Tools, Updates from HP
or
Start, All Programs, Updates from HP

http://www.hp.com/united-states/cpc/hp/updates.html


It will either reinstall it from the Recovery partition if your system uses that method, or ask you to place
the proper CD/DVD in your DC drive tray. For some, you tell it what or click on a button corresponding to the program you want to reinstall and from there on, it is pretty simple and I am sure you will be able to do it.

You are not wanting to run a system recovery or anything like that, just to replace one program that has to do with HP Updates. What you want is Application Recovery, only one program.

Then, after it is reinstalled, you may see some popup baloon things from HP> that is the Backweb software working to bring you ads and such....you can turn this service off, by uninstalling it again from Add/Remove Programs. That may take care of the error on the screen, I'm hoping.

You could keep the program installed for a while and see if it updates something, you may even like
the "HP Club" ads and notices... some folks do use them.

It could be that someone used an antispyware program such as SpyBot Search and Destroy that detects the Backweb plugin (but does not automatically remove it since this is known not to be serious spyware) but does not remove the entire HP Updates program....and that is when you get error message.

Do what is above, and if you have any problems, feel free to ask here!

Hi, Then follow what is in my last post and try to reinstall HP Updates etc.

when you do have it running, this is what it looks like in an Hijackthis log, just for reference, it is from someone else's log, not yours:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [HP Software Update] C:\Program Files\HP\HP Software Update\HPWuSchd2.exe

Am posting that so you can look for it in logs, after you try installing the Update program....

Hi, This one is what I posted to Uninstall....though, I have seen some things in preinstalled PC's that do not remove their titles from Add/Remove Programs list.

HP Software Update


Is that what you uninstalled? If you have not Re-installed HP Software Update, try to Reinstall it, using the steps I posted> from Start button, All Programs> Hewlett Packard>whatever it calls it on your computer, HP Tools, PC Tools,
HP Solution Center, etc.
If you get the thing running it will tell you to put one of your CDs into the drive, or it will reinstall it itself.

Just do not start a Full Recovery>> that will wipe out what is there now, and return the computer to factory settings, which also removes all you have done since you got the computer> all files, programs you installed, etc.
Reinstalling that program may stop the error messages you were getting, and it can be left installed, unless like a lot of other HP owners, you do not care about the ads and notices they send. If that is true, Uninstall it once more.

You can always go to the HP support area for your PC and see any important notices, by typing in the model ID info from the back of the computer, like this, Presario 5320 US (which is the last one I just worked with in a thread 20 minutes ago)

HPs are usually Pavilions. You know what I mean...model type/family and model number.

You do that at this page:

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html?pageDisplay=support

Then, use the links there, for Support and Troubleshooting, Software and Drivers....etc.

The links in my last reply are from that support area, about HP Updates...you may find more and better specific info using your model number. I hope this helps you!

Okay I did uninstall the HP Updates. Then I reinstalled "HP Boot Optimizer Data Files". Wasn't sure if this was the right one or not since nothing had the word UPDATES in it. But as soon as resinstalled the data files, I was able to click off the error message. WHEW! I hope it stays off! I think I may be done, lol.

Thank you again for all your help and patience.

Guess I spoke too soon. The message was off until I turned on the computer this morning and now it's back. Should I do anything else or just learn to live with it?
