What software is it? Did it install ok or was that message part of the install routine?

It is not necessarily a spyware problem; more likely a faulty install routine.

It is birthday card software it installed okay then when I tried to use that error message appeared.
Thanks Joe

Well, try a reinstall, or do a search on your hdd for the program called launcher.exe; it may be that it did not install properly.

Have tried re-install several times and searched hard drive no joy.

In that case, is is compatible with your OS? Otherwise, I am lost on it... sorry.

I've just finished looking around the net and it seems it might be some form of spyware but nothing definite.I have Spybot and that didn't find anything.
