Critical Error: Attempt to release mutex not owned by caller

This is SBS 2003. Whenever I install Microsoft Hotfix, I get the following error messages:

SQLVDI
1 8/11/2007 11:00 PM 3 *
SQLVDI: Loc=CVDS::Cleanup. Desc=Release(ClientAliveMutex).
ErrorCode=(288)Attempt to release mutex not owned by caller. . Process=1788.
Thread=5740. Client. Instance=SBSMONITORING. VD=.

Somebody please help.

I appreciate your help friend but getting the same error message even after applying that Hotfix. And as per the second URL, my SP level is already newer than the version provided in that URL.

What now?

Re: Critical Error: Attempt to release mutex not owned by caller

Let me provide some more info about the same. I usually get this error usually right after the SBS Backup runs. During installation, they had me upgrade the Sharepoint Database to the 2005 version for Full-Test searching. Though I successfully cleared the process, without any error message. Let me show you the event log for the same:

Event Type: Information

Event Category: ShadowCopy

Run a script prior to running the backup to stop MS SQL and the Agent.
