The profile file is already corrupted and removing WSJ won't change that. What I would do is in the DM backup tab under advance, on the device data bases, just delete profiles and see if it will complete the backup. If it does then go ahead and update you operating system.
If it still won't backup, you can backup each data base separately under the advance tab on DM and then install 4.5.

After updating, your profiles will be at the default settings and you can make any changes you want.
As for WSJ reader, here is a link to a 'fix' version which I have been using with no problems. Just do a backup once you get your profiles set before reloading the WSJ reader.

Hope this helps. Also, for future reference, I always do a current backup before loading any third party apps. It's a good habit in case something like this happens.
