I get SSBkgdUpdate.exe confirmation request every start up. I've done a google search on this and found numerous free registry scans and various different suggestions on fixes.

But everything comes up as not compatible with Vista 64bit. I just got my computer last week and was upsold to 64bit. Is 64bit really good or wot?

Anyway, should I disable it or uninstall it altogether? One website says the program can be 10% dangerous because it is able to record inputs and some malware and adware programs camouflage themselves as SSBkgdupdate.exe. Sounds a bit scary.

thanks all
