    when the box wakes up from standby on its own that is usually what is running.

    If the web is slow to disconnect it is running when I have checked.

    Backweb is a method of obtaining driver updates. Any update worth installing will be on Microsoft's Windows Update service or updating via the vendor's website.

    Uninstall Backweb via Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs or stop it from loading by running msconfig and unchecking the box for Backweb Agent.
