I am using Windows 7 Home Premium and on start up of Windows I am getting the following error:

SDTray.exe - System Error

The program can't start because vclie150.bpl is missing from your computer. Try re-installing the program to fix this problem.

What does this error mean, and how do I fix it?

1 Answer 1


SDTray.exe is a background tray app installed by Safer Networking's SpyBot. vclie150.bpl is also a file which belongs to this program, and normally should be located inside its app folder in Program Files.

Reinstalling the application (SpyBot) should fix the problem.

Also, sometimes different anti-virus and anti-malware programs remove each other's components because they find virus signatures inside. If you have an anti-virus program installed, you can also check its "vault" or a similarly-named thrash can to see if your file has ended up there.
