    Hi guys.

    A mysterious program appeared on my computer and I have no clue what it is or where it came from! Its called "Backup" and the icon is an orange umbrella (see below). Anyone have any clue what it is? Is it legit?

    Do you have an external drive hooked up? Google says it's a backup app that's used by some.

    Ok I changed my search to say "Orange Umbrella Backup icon" and it looks like its a Mac backup program. It looks like its related to Mobile Me.

    Lol Thank you for the reply :D
