Is this a virus ??

When I start up Incredimail I have been getting a message on the screen it says Backweb Security Notice and is a channel "Support" certificate from NEC Computers and is Secure Server Certification. I have clicked cancel in case it is a virus and says it will reappear in 24 hrs. Should I accept it all my security systems are working OK.

It is not a virus but could be classed as "spyware" click here

Spybot should get rid if it click here

Lillylou, I'm pretty certain that this is nothing to do with a virus. Backweb click here appear to be a reputable web company. I think you are simply being reminded by Internet Explorer that it has checked for Server Certification (Tools - Internet options - Advanced - Security).

Thanks for that I just wanted to check as there is a new virus going around that attaches itself to you emails. I also scan things first anyway but this won't scan.
