    try to uninstall spk4
    I never liked this pak it gave me nothing but grief
    I would update only the most critical stuff
    you should have the $uninstall for this under windows updates

    I'm not really sure and i can't find it because i dont have automatic updates on here or any SP. Possibly in Add/Remove Programs, or in the Automatic Updates settings screen under control panel.

    You can just turn the automatic updates service off in your services.msc. WIth it on it still checks for updates you just dont allow it to download.
