    I am looking for information on the following programs:
    -->Wild Tangent - found in the Control Panel... something to do with graphics?
    -->Back Web - no clue
    -->Smartalec PC Accelerator - claims to improve the system's efficiency? I'm a little skeptical about this one.

    I am mostly interested in reasons why any of these shouldn't be used (i.e. they aren't effective). I have a friend who is running all of these and I'm trying to cut down on the processes that he has running to free up some memory. I'd appreciate any info/experience that anyone has had with these.

    backweb is related to Logitech software, such as webcams, mouse, keyboards, etc.

    I couldn't tell you about the others.

    Hi there,

    You can find some info at the following sites:

    http://www.wildtangent.com/
    http://www.smartalec2000.com/

    And I'm not sure if this is the same Back Web but you can try:

    http://www.backweb.com/

    The only one I'd heard of is Wild Tangent and I think that it comes as a part of some games. I didn't think it was running in the background though but rather gets called when needed and appears in the Control Panel. Perhaps someone else can offer some more advice.

    Catch you later,
    Blue
