The Western Digital Data Lifeline Backweb Lite Installer has the process file dlgli.exe automatically execute upon Windows startup. The program file dlgli.exe appears to use the Backweb product to silently install certain items (upgrades, products, applications) into the computer system. When the user installs the dlgli.exe program file and Western Digital Data Lifeline into the computer, the former readily creates a shortcut in the Windows Startup folder. The dlgli.exe file may also be used to reinstall or repair components of the Backweb application. In addition, it is worth noting that the process file dlgli.exe is simply an installer, meaning not all items downloaded are considered as products of Western Digital itself.
Since the program file dlgli.exe is an installer of the Backweb products, it downloads slowly or trickles certain items and software into the system (similar to the Gator software install stub). Prior to providing services to Western Digital, Backweb had systems and upgrades for the software of Logitech products. These companies use Backweb products and clients to distribute software updates, drivers, critical information, and patches from a secure site server directly to the users of their manufactured hard drive. Therefore, the program file dlgli.exe and Backweb products are not necessarily spyware. These products do not download malware into the system intentionally.
Western Digital, the publisher and creator of the dlgli.exe program file, is the leading manufacturer of hard disks used all over the world, and has a reputation in the electronics industry as makers of Integrated Circuits.
This is a safe process. There is no necessity to remove this process from your system or change it in any way.
