I just got a new computer and have begun to load software on it. I first loaded Windows 98 and all the drivers for my hardware; Then I loaded Windows ME. Then I've load some other programs as well: Printmaster; Quicken; MS Streets & Trips, 3D Home & landscape planner and probably a few others. I downloaded IE 6 and Outlook Express 6. Everything seems to be working fine.
Then, all of a sudden, I get an error message on an executable called back-web.exe during startup. I removed that software (as I didn't install it and didn't know what it was). Then, at next startup, I got another error message telling me that a shortcut in the startup file had a dead link. I went and checked, and lo and behold, the short-cut pointed to backweb.exe. The shortcut name was "Data Lifeguard".
Does anyone know what this software is and what it does?
Does anyone know how I got it loaded?
Have I screwed myself some way by deleting it?
