SQLDUMPER LIBRARY FAILED INITIALIZATION.

Hello,
I recently removed Microsoft 60 day trial of small business and added office Professional for 60 days. Everything appeared to go well. However when I did a reboot and restarted my computer I am receiving this error message each time I start up my computer :  SQLDUMPER library failed initialization. Your installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with. Please unistall then re -run to correct the problem.

What is this? and how do I correct this? I have active antivirus software. Please help. thanks

I uninstalled Outlook’s Business Contact Manager.
At the next reboot I received the following error: 

“SQL Writer.  SQLDUMPER library failed initialization.  Your installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with. Please ininstall then re-run setup to correct this problem.”

 

I read 2 solutions online:

You could remove “Microsoft SQL Server VSS Writer” program. [ from Add/Remove Programs in Windows Control Panel ]

 

B)

http://www.eggheadcafe.com/software/aspnet/30051125/sqldumper-library-failed-initialization.aspx

Problem is caused by uninstallation of Business Contact Manager leaving the service SQL Server VSS Writer with the startuptype set to start automatic. This service expects a working SQL Server installation that I had uninstalled. After setting the starttype to manual the error no longer appeared

In XP open -control panel - administrative tools- services - scroll down to SQL Server VSS Writer, double click on it and change automatic to manual

 

I did (B) and the error went away and my pc worked properly.
