Whenever I log onto my machine I get this area message that pops up saying "SQL Server installation has been corrupt or tampered with, Unknown Package Id". Does anyone know how to get rid of this error message I would really appreciate it, thanks.

do you have sql installed on your machine?

Try removing it and reinstalling from add/remove control panel

I was actually unaware that I had it on my machine. I did a little research also and it says it has something to do with changing the computer name I haven't done that either. I went to Add/Remove programs and the its not listed there is there another way to get rid of the error message.

Please run hijackthis (see link in my signature), then save a log and AS A TEXT FILE (FILE > SAVE AS) then ATTACH IT (do not post) to your next post.

We do not like to post hijackthis logs in sections other than the malware forum as we do not want to encourage people to post malware issues in this forum.

I am not looking for malware. I am looking for what programs or combinations of programs might cause this behavior. If I notice any malware, I will redirect you to the malware forum.

If you post a hijackthis log in this forum, several trusted techs will come to your house and eat all of your Ritz crackers, Cheeze Doodal and any sweet pickles you have in your fridge. We will also put our feet up on all of your coffee tables. This is no joke. We'll do it. It's not pretty.

I think that is darn wierd since you don't seem to be running sql server.....


is there anything you loaded just prior to this starting? I am wondering if one of Norton's apps are using an sql database (password application, maybe) to store and retrieve.

I know I had a wireless router hooked up to it and once I disconnected it I believe thats when it started. I'm not sure if that would do it or not. But as far as loading anything I haven't done that. Do you know of anything else that might cause this?
