    Anyone having troubles installing MSXML 4.0 SP2 Security Update (KB927978) &
    Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1. With an Error Code 0x641

    This error is resolved by making sure the Windows Installer service is set
    to Automatic and the service is started. Services are located... Control
    Panel > Adminastrative Tools > Services

    Another tip When updating XP via Windows Update site always make sure the
    following services are running : Automatic Updates, Background Intelligent
    Transfer Service, Event Log & Windows Installer.

    Both Updates are now installed successfully.

    I've done all the steps you've mentioned but oddly there's no "Windows
    Installer" service on my machine -> Win2K SP4, IE 6.0.2800
