:thumbsup: Oh, please help before I go insane. I keep getting a pop-up window saying:

Runner Error
Runner file name (fspex.exe)lacks a "-" (the app id separator)

I have run two anti-spyware programs (F-Secure and Spybot) but neither picked up anything. I also ran Virus scanner F-Secure, but no virus?

What is this annoying little thing?

I have not done anything, or downloaded anything, unusual in the past few days. My virus detector did stop an email attachment, and shortly after that the little monster starting popping up?

Can someone shed some light on this?

Thank you so much... :flowers:
p.s. My os is Windows XP

We have met the enemy, and he is us! (pogo) I think that error is coming from f-secure. Might need to contact them or remove it.
Spike's advice: Backup your data routinely.
