    I had the KB948109 error 0x733F problem-- my original SQL Express 2005 SP2
    installation must have been defective. Any way it created a service
    MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS which would never start because of not authorized for access
    errors regardless of what I did to authorize the user.

    If you have had an aborted install of SQL you may expect this problem.

    So I uninstalled SQL Express completely and reinstalled.

    However, it still found, but would not accept, the old service
    MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS and would only proceed if I specified "Use Default"

    This reinstall then went OK and reinstalled SQL Express creating a new
    service MSSQLSERVER.

    Now I applied the downloaded KB948109 as per Tornalca and it applied it
    successfully to the new valid service MSSQLSERVER but not to the old invalid
    service MSSQL$ SQLEXPRESS.

    So, how do I purge the invalid service MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS from my machine?

    For me, PA Bear, this does not help. It is not now an update problem. The
    problem seems to predate the update problem. As reported, the update has
    been installed. But the original defective creation of the SQLExpress
    service will certainly rear its ugly head again. There are too many registry
    entries to cavalierly delete all such references. The SQL Server
    documentation is just too massive to download at short notice (150Meg+?).
    Since in the SQL Server 2005 Surface Area Configurtor when I try help, I get
    'Help file not found', I am operating blind on this one.

    Oh well; it may be corrected during my next format system HDD / reinstall
    cycle in 2-3 months!

  4. If the behavior started after installing the update(s), it qualifies as "an
    update problem" and only MS Support can help you fix it...for free!
