To clarify angelIII answer: replace ' (single quote) with '' (double single quote, not a double quote)

can't do like this: qr = "UPDATE Task SET Finished = '<td class=''biz''></td><td class=''isp''><img /><img src=''styles/spunta.gif''></td>' WHERE"

in ASP.NET if you use " ,it mean you finish a string. So that you will get error at "biz"

qr = "UPDATE Task SET Finished = '<td class=""biz""></td><td class=""isp""><img /><img src=""styles/spunta.gif""></td>' WHERE" +
            "Username+task+CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), tasktime, 103) = '" + e.CommandArgument.ToString() + "'";

to escape double quotes, use ""

please check carefully, i posted ''biz'' which is not the same as "biz": 2 single quotes vs double quotes.
