Unknown file -backweb-8876480.exe

I ran my BT Yahoo anti spyware and removed the file "backweb-8876480.exe"

I received a run time error when I restarted my PC, related to the missing file.

I've deselected it in msconfig / startup so the error doesn't happen anymore but I'd be interested to know what the file did and whether I have deleted something important.

Any ideas?

Thanks Vog.

Just bought a new Logitech cordless mouse which explains things.

Did a Google Search.

Found some interesting comments regarding threat potential!! Opinions vary considerably.

No harm done by removing it.

Thanks Vog
Thanks from me also. I had installed Logitech cordless - which I subsequently uninstalled - but this must have been left behind.
I contacted Logitech as I had an idea it was their problem but got no answer. Now removed fron start-up
