After windows XP had started, the PC would pop up a window titled: SQL Writer
The window would say something like: sqldumper library failed initialization.
Its an inconvenience, and the customer wanted it removed.
I looked at various startup programs, but I couldn’t find anything obvious.
But after some research, I found an elegant solution:
Disable the SQL server service
Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative tools -> Services
Start -> run -> services.msc
go to the SQL server entry and change it from automatic to manual (or even disabled)
