Hi thanks for your time.
i do regular checks using spybot on my packard bell pc using windows xp home.
ive noticed recently that backweb lite appears more and more. can i delete any of these. no crosses appear to indicate any form danger but ive noticed im getting a lot of spam mail and popups.

You can safely delete them.

However, some companies - Kodak, Logitech(?) - use Backweblite to update their software.
