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"
IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

            "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.
