I stop SQL Server (ACT7) to backup all my files. Then, I power down my laptop.
This has worked flawlessly for a long time. Over the last 2-3 weeks, I find that SQL Server (ACT7) service is not starting AUTOMATICALLY when the laptop is powered up. This service "startup type" is set to "automatic".

Check to see if you have any pending SQL updates that are attempting to install. If you have a SQL update for SP3 pending, you can choose to hide the update so it doesn't attempt install.

I dont have anything pending updates - I cant recall seeing any specific updates for SQL.
I will say, however, I seem to have updates everyday!!!

Yes, I just saw that Security Update for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 (KB970892) failed to installed.
I didnt see this since I usually click to run the updates when I am shutting down.
Has anyone experience this - and - how did you get it to install?

i went into the regedit but my value was already set to 0 except that hex was select not decimal - i tried selecting decimal but no luck.
in other words, this didnt make a difference.
