I recently performed a clean install on my PC, and have reloaded some of my original software back on. However a problem has emerged in the past couple of days, out of the blue. Everytime I start my machine once Windows has loaded I get the following message Pop-up.
"Backweb is unable to access it's data directory. Either the data directory is invalid, unreachable or there is another instance of Backweb accessing it"
I've done some research on this, and popular opinion is that it is linked to kodak. I have no such Kodak software. However I looked up my startup programs in 'msconfig' and there is an entry there which says backweb logitech, which I believe is linked in someway to my webcam, or webcam software.
I have seen a way on a tech page which popped up in a google search, which involved just switching it off in the startup items list. Fair enough, but A: I thought i'd check with the experts first, and B: i'm not really one for brushing problems under the proverbial carpet, i'd rather solve the problem 'at source' if possible. Besides which, i've just as previously mentioned reformatted the whole drive and have put my nice fresh software on a nice fresh PC, so would like to iron out these issues early on rather than end up living with them as I have done previously.
Lastly, but worth a mention. I havn't deliberately installed anything that wasn't on my PC before, and i've NEVER had this issue, so kinda confused as to why this time a conflict has arisen.
Any help/ pointers, gratefully appreciated.
^Apologies, I do have software on here that I didn't have before, I have changed my A.v. from AVG to Avast, and am also running Super Anti-spyware, which I wasn't before. Oh, and also using Opera rather than IE. But what I meant was, i'm not using any software which I believe would create this conflict. (Thought I better correct myself)
