Hey Japstar

Ohhh I guess it can be considered spyware. Not really Malicious Though.
Ive always considered it as optional but after reading up on it Maybe I'll change my mind

delete this file
C:\Program Files\hpcenter\137903\Program\BackWeb-137903.exe

Check the corresponding entry with Hijack

O4 - Global Startup: hp center.lnk = C:\Program Files\hpcenter\137903\Program\BackWeb-137903.exe

and click fix checked
