    I'm finding that Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3
    (KB970892) never gets installed, but I don't know why. It just says it
    can't install it. Whether this really matters or not I don't know but
    it's a pain having this constantly reminding me to let it do something
    that it can't or won't do.

    What's the answer?

    Try disabling your anti virus real time protection before attempting the
    update again. Once it finishes installing, re-enable the AV.

    Thanks for your help here, guys. Unfortunately your recommendations were
    of no avail but I did discover that I have only one program (AFAIK) that
    uses SQL. Since I haven't used this prog for over two years, and could
    reinstall if necessary I've deleted it, after consultation with the
    program makers, who were unable to say why the update would not install.
    They also said that the update was unnecessary, given that the prog
    worked perfectly fine. However I was annoyed at having the constant icon
    reminding me to install the update, and now I don't have that! Problem
    solved.

    Have you even bothered to open a no-charge support incident yet?

    It's a friggin' SECURITY update, d00d!

    <QP>
    This security update resolves several privately reported vulnerabilities in
    Microsoft Windows GDI+. These vulnerabilities could allow remote code
    execution if a user viewed a specially crafted image file using affected
    software or browsed a Web site that contains specially crafted content...

    I dunno who "they" are but "they" did NOT provide you with SQL Server 2005.

    "They"=The "program makers" of the "only program [he] has that uses SQL," a
    program which "[he has not] used in two years."

    He deleted it, which solved the problem to his satisfaction, so there's no
    reason for your exasperation or for him to open a support incident. Chill.

    I didn't say they did. But it got on my computer somehow and I linked it
    to this software because its name was in the title of the SQL server in
    the list of services.
