MSDE for adminDB

Ever since I installed Diskeeper Administrator 2009 on my PC (it runs XP Pro, svc pk 3), every time I print something, I get some "MSDE for AdminDB" pop-up that says "Setup has detected that your current SA password is set to blank. Please use sp_password to set a strong SA password and restart setup or set BLANKSAPWD=1 to ignore this vulnerablility. Refer to readme for more details. Setup will now exit." Then when I click the OK button I get another pop-up that says "Please wait while Windows configures MSDE for AdminDB." Then I have to click the Cancel button several times to make this all go away. I told the techs at Diskeeper about this but they weren't able to solve it. I've since uninstalled Diskeeper Administrator on my PC but I still have this problem. Can anyone figure this out? (I don't know anything about MS SQL Server or SA passwords, etc).

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If Diskeeper is trying to install MSDE then you’ll need to have them correct the installer so that it doesn’t cause the problem.

    Go to your Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs and then uninstall Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (AdminDB).

    I don't think Diskeeper uses MSDE. I don't recall MSDE or SQL Server Express as a prerequisite for that program when I've used it in the past.
