I am a new member, I hope someone will help me.

On startup I get a message of Invalid backweb application ID 1940576.

BackWeb is an auto-update software that comes with vendors like HP/Compaq, Kodak, Logitech, and others that is installed to "Update" your programs via the internet

Now, you need to go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, and look for any program that looks like an "Updater" for the programs mentionned above. Uninstall them (Remove). Then, download SpyBot Search and Destroy,


update it (crucial) and run it. You will see a lot of entries with check marks next to them, ready for "fixing", and a lot of "BackWeb lite" entries that won't have check marks. Put check marks next to everything (right-click one, and choose "Select All" and have SpyBot fix everything.

If you ran a SpyWare removal tool like SpyBot or AdAware and partially removed the program, then you can get this error. Also, look for it in your Startup folder and delete.
