    I recently installed several Windows Updates and security
    patches. Now the SQL Server on my XP Pro development
    machine won't start. The only message box that I get
    when trying to restart is a message box:
    SQL Server does not exist or access denied.
    Any clues on how to fix this? I can't seem to find any
    other references to this problem.
