You are on the completely wrong website. We don't back up anything on here - it is a free computer help site (volunteers) and not related to any company.

You need to find out what particular website or company you have been dealing with and ask them.

What made you choose us for this query - picked out of the hat maybe?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I think there must be some computing.net redirect malware sending people here.

Don't forget to preorder your Hatch green chili for this fall. Many vendors ship world-wide.

It's not really surprising CN gets posts like this as the site can sometimes get confusing for newbies with advertising appearing as if it is part of the site.

For example there's one appearing at the top of this post at the moment - a 'Recommended solution' (including 'tick') for 'driver update and repair utility' (which for anyone new looking will not help the OP at all!!). Chances are there was a similar sort of thing for a backup company a while ago - hence this post. I know the site relies on advertising but when some of it is blatantly misleading like this then it's no surprise CN gets confused new users is it?

Good point johnr - not everyone is adept it differentiating between advertising and the proper site material.

Point. There are two 'back up' site ads showing to me right now. I have seen many ads for recovery, computer speed up, driver updates, and others that we typically warn people against using for they more often than not are very close to scams most of the time, useless often, and outright scams way too often.
I propose that all ads related to computer technology be screened and tested for truth, safety, and their claims tested before they are allowed to place those ads. After people get burned, it is a little late to then pull the ads due to questionable content (like closing the barn doors after the animals have all left).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Yes, the regulars on here instinctively avoid all the useless fix-all and registry cleaning programs that pop up on so many websites but others often don't. Countless wonder driver finders are another thing that pop up everywhere and are well capable of messing up your computer. I know I'm preaching to the converted on all this of-course.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
