I have Vista Business on my desktop. Usually I have no problems with the Windows updating feature. However, ever since I've had it (about 2 years!) the only dl the system is unable to process is the Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2 (KB948109). Since April of last year, this dl has has failed EVERY time the updater tries to dl it, with the following error code: 00002B08.

As a "Yooser", why it seems to be a "necessary" file is beyond me; my machine seems to function perfectly well without it. However, I cannot seem to get the updater to ignore this file, so it keeps coming up as a necessary dl.

Can someone tell me:

1) Why this file is necessary for Vista?
2) Why the error keeps occurring & how to fix it?
3) Alternately, if the error cannot be fixed, how to disable the notification for this file.


Thanks for any assistance,

Actually, I have since found out that the SQL Server stuff is related to the ACT! contact management program we run. I frankly didn't know how it even got there until I tried to uninstall it, only to discover it was linked to that program. Needless to say, I didn't want to screw up ACT! so I just left it as is hoping that disabling/hiding the update will solve the notification/dl problem. (So far so good!)

Additionally, it appears that this is a known issue with Microsoft & ACT! Look here: http://community.act.com/sage/board/messag...;thread.id=9435. FYI, even though the header on the thread says "solved", the issue is far from it, and still remains a PITA.

Thanks for the "try", though...

The update kicks in because there's some files on your system that are affected by the update (details here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948109 ). As this is a very common issue, I suspect that there's an application on your system that uses some of these files (I suspect that it's another Microsoft program, such as Office, but have no proof otherwise).

FWIW - my XP SP3 VM (Virtual Machine) doesn't have these files, nor does it tell me that the update is needed. I haven't installed any extra stuff on it, so it's just the basic Windows XP Pro OS without any functional programs.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
