Whenever I log onto my machine I get this area message that pops up saying "SQL Server installation has been corrupt or tampered with, Unknown Package Id". Does anyone know how to get rid of this error message I would really appreciate it, thanks.

Have you recently renamed your computer?

Is this stopping you from booting your computer?

Were you aware that you had SQL Server on your computer?

Sometimes this happens because of an antivirus update. It means that SQL Server is corrupt. Microsoft thinks that the best way to fix this is to uninstall and reinstall SQL Server.

Microsoft has their usual ridiculously complicated set of methods to remove SQL Server here. Since this requires registry edits, it would be a good idea to back up your registry first.

Here is a Microsoft article about MS SQL Server 7 setup.

Theoretically, only SQL Server 7 should be affected by this problem.

And here's another thread which suggests that the problem may be between MS Office Pro and BCM.

No its not stopping me from booting. I was also not aware that I had SQL Server on the computer, thats why I don't know why this started. I don't recall changing the name. So I just took a look at what Microsoft said and like you said it has something to do with the registry, I"m kinda hestant to go into the registry because I don't want to mess anything up. Is there any other way around this, besides doing that. I know I don't have a disk either because I wasn't aware that it was on the machine. Any advice would help thanks for your response.

Use Windows System Restore to reset it to a date from before this problem began.

start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore.

How about Office Pro? Thing is, there is probably something with SQL in it - that's database related. (Structured Query Language)
