A little background.....
I did a spybot scan and it came up with "back web lite" so I got rid of it. Ever since then I get a message on my computer every time at start-up that says
"Runner file name (updates from HP.exe) lacks a '-' (the app id separator)"

So i went back and tried to undo what I just did and the following happens
"SpybotSD.exe-Bad Image
the application or Dll C:\windows\wt\webdriver.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this agains insallation diskette."
I clicked OKand this happened
"SpybotSD.exe-unable to locate component
this application has failed to start because WDENGINE.dll was not found. Re-installing the app. may fix problem."

What is going on? any ideas? any help? Thanks!

It means WildTangent has been partially uninstalled using a spyware remover like Spybot: Search & Destroy.
