What is Backweb Lite.

Spybot keeps finding Backweb Lite. Can anyone tell me what it is please so that I will know whether to remove it or whether I need to exclude it from scanning. I did ask this in my post of a few minutes ago but accidentally marked it as resolved, which it isn`t.

Backweb is a utility installed during installation of certain programs (I know that HP and Kodak use it).

The notion is that they can use it to auto install updates - but it could be used as spyware etc.

If its in the folder of a well known company you may as well leave it alone but otherwise get rid.
