Aaaaa, what does this message mean? And how can I get rid of it? It pops up everytime I start up my computer. It says:
"SQL Writer

SQLDUMPER libraray failed initialization. Your installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with. Please uninstall then re-run setup to correct this problem"

This can happen if you installed a trial of MS Office and it's expired.

Go to "Add or Remove Programs" & uninstall "Microsoft SQL Server"

Restart Windows.

if that doesn't work or if there is no "Microsoft SQL Server" installed, try the fix explained here:

Thanks for helping!! <3

Well there's 3 things (in "Add or Remove Programs")that say SQL.
So which one(s) do I remove out of these?

Microsoft SQL Server Native Client
Microsoft SQL Server Setup Support Files (English)
Microsoft SQL Server VSS Writer
