    Pirated software is generally tainted with trojan viruses. Your best bet at this point is to back up only your data and reinstall the OS to ensure that whatever was installed is gone.

    Getbackup as you might expect is a backup program the agent is part of that,find Getbackup on your computer and trash it.It may have installed as part of another app Toast for example.

    That begs the question: Did you download something from the Internet?

    If this "unknown" application starts-up when you login, then it should be listed under the Login Items tab of the Accounts preferences pane of System Preferences.
