A query returned 2 rows for me. But both the rows are having the same values. I need to delete one row of that. For deleting i tried to update one field of one row so that i can delete one..but its giving out an error like ;

Key column information is insufficient or incorrect. Too many rows were affected by update.

So how can i delete one row of those two

you could do this:
SET ROWCOUNT 1
DELETE yourtable WHERE col1 = value1 AND col2=value2 ...
