From http://www.easydesksoftware.com/common.htm#Backweb :

Invalid Backweb Application

When I log on to Windows, I get runner error "invalid backweb application, id 137903", how do i fix this?.

You have downloaded a program that contains spyware or adware. The spyware or adware has been removed but the program requires the spyware to be installed in order to run, without it you will get the Run Time error. This program runs on startup so you will have to uninstall the program that had the spyware associated with it. Run Msconfig from the Start > Run window and turn off the progam that you downloaded, or uninstall the program.

I would amend the above suggestion with using a tool like AutoRuns for Windows v8.73 - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/AutoRuns.mspx

Go to the Logon tab, look at the items...uncheck the one that seems to relate to Backweb. Do not uncheck any MS items if you resort to trial-and-error.

Just FYI - BackWeb comes with a lot of HP software. So, if you've installed an HP product, this may be the source of the error. Uninstall the HP software and the error should go away (if not, there's other ways to tackle this).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

This is usually from a monitoring application, installed sometimes by HP, logitech devices. It is spyware.
Go to Start... Run .. Type ... msconfig
Look at the Startup tab. Uncheck the entries for Backweb

Then scan your PC for Spyware with SUPERAntiSpyware,preferably from safe Mode.

You can also look for Backweb in add/remove programs. If found, remove it.
