Not much else I can suggest other than the following.

If you can reach US/CA-based toll free numbers using your mobile or Skype,
call 1-800-936-5700 and pretend that you're in the US or CA.

Identify your SQL Server version/build in the chart under "Known issues with
this security update" in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941203 and check
the related KB article (e.g., http://support.microsoft.com/kb/957008/;
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953742/).

I haven't seen all of the history to this thread, since I don't monitor
windowsxp.general. I assume you've already tried downloading the update and
installing it by hand; have you tried creating a new administrative account (one
local to the computer rather than a domain account) and using the new account to
install the downloaded update?

There have been several updates lately which are oversensitive to the context in
which they are being run, and I suspect this might be one of them - creating a
brand new user gives you a clean user registry and using a local account keeps
any user group policy from interfering. It may be worth a try, anyway.

Harry.

Re: Automatic Updates repeatedly installing KB948109
Well I have tried installing using my normal user account (which is a power
user) and using the stock Administrator account which I never bothered using
before. Main reason I tried that account at all is because of a bugged GFX
driver update having complaints over admin rights falsely.

That's interesting to note and I'll remember it in future issues too as an
option worth trying. Afterall, since I don't use the stock Administrator
account it is clean enough.

I've checked all the KB articles suggested so far, they haven't solved the
problem. Only thing so far to make a difference was to just hide
notifications of that particular update.
