After updating my XP SP3 workstation to latest patches i see this errror in the event log

Source MSSQL$MSSMLBIZ event ID 17207
FCB::Open:Operating system error 5(Access is denied) occured while creating or opening file 'c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\DATA\master.mdl"  Diagnose and correct the operating system error and retry the operation.
Is this a critical error that will create problems down the line using web apps?

Microsoft has offered a patch but I can't get that to work ..
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929665

"To work around this issue, repair Windows Internal Database. To do this, run the following command line at a command prompt:
Msiexec /i SSEE_10.msi CALLERID=OCSetup.exe REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=omus /qn REBOOT=ReallySupress /l*v <Log_File_Path> " 

Trying this return a syntax error. - I can download SSE_10.msi and but it in the directory where i run this command line, but same syntax error.

Any clues how I should be running this command? SQL server 2005 was installed from Office 2007 - and the latest patch for SQL server couldnt install for some reason.

Just change the SQL Server service account to LocalSystem which should help fix the issue.
Else Grant Full privileges to c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server for the user account under which SQL Server service is up and running.
