Does the event date and time correlate with any jobs set up in SQL Server Agent? Maybe there is a dodgy job that is failing.

Can you screenshot and post the error you're seeing? Is it a particular job or is it when you just click on SQL Server agent?

4. add a description

Or you can explain to me in words exactly whatyou opened, where you navigated to, what you pressed, and exactly what message you see.

I beleive SP's are cumulative so that should be fine. I guess all the prereqs would be in the readme for the SP. Sorry I do more development than admin.
