Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (KB970895)
It appears that numerous people have had the same problem that I had where
this update failed at every attempt to install it.
I tried many of the suggestions in the various newsgroups without success,
then today I looked at the SQL services under Control Panel/Administrative
Tools/Services and saw that SQLExpress and SQL Active Directory Helper were
not started, although they were set to Automatic. I tried starting them
manually but neither would start. I then went to Properties, Log On and
changed the log on to "Local System Account".
I then tried starting the two services again. SQL Express started, but not
Directory Helper. I thought I'd try running the update again anyway, and it
Thank God Microsoft don't make cars, weapons, or medical equipment.

The description of this security update at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/970892, in the More Information section, lists four TechNet articles with troubleshooting procedures for known issues. Article 955250 seems like it may be applicable, although the error message doesn't match. I'm still trying to work through this. The security update is available at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en for anybody who does not wish to rely on Windows Update.
