This file is part of the Backweb application, which is generally related
to autoupdating software. Could be harmless, could be harmful depending
on host application. If you have an HP printer or computer for
instance, you'll find Backweb on your system. In any case, it is a good
idea to regularly scan your system with anti-malware tools like
Ad-aware and Spybot Search & Destroy. You can get those two programs
free from www.majorgeeks.com. Install them, update them, and do a scan.
Of course you should have a current version (not earlier than 2004)
antivirus using updated virus definitions installed and active on your
computer.
