    Look at my post titled "same update will not stop updating" on 12/30. I
    turned off automatic updates, uninstalled the update from "add and remove
    programs", then turned on automatic updates once again. It installed
    properly, and I've had no problems since.

  5. George,

    Did you change your mind about posting but hit send anyway?

    Probably noto going to help scotta69 out too much anyway - considering they
    probably are no longer monitoring this conversation:
    http://groups.google.com/group/microsoft.public.windowsupdate/browse_frm/thread/2d8889bb87309bf8/
    (Yeah, December 2007 and January 2008.)

    Always look at the articles that reference the update - sometimes you'll
    find your answer embedded in the information about the patch you are trying
    to install.

    You know the KB article #, as you gave it: 936181
    Take that and put together the microsoft page that references it:
    http://support.microsoft.com/KB/###### or:
    http://support.microsoft.com/KB/936181

    In this case - if you scroll down to the "Known issues with this security
    update" section, you might find:
    "This security update may repeatedly appear in the update list on Microsoft
    Update or on Windows Update if one of the system files is corrupted or if it
    has not been updated correctly."


    Reading more, you'd see it points you to:
    Security updates for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 may
    repeatedly appear in the update list on Microsoft Update or on Windows
    Update
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941729/


    Which tells you to:


    To resolve this problem, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER.
    2. At the command prompt, type ren %windir%\System32\msxml4.dll msxml4.old,
    and then press ENTER.
    *Note* After you press ENTER, you may receive the following error message:
    Cannot find the file specified.
    Ignore this message, and go to step 3.
    3. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.
    4. Visit the following Microsoft Web site:
    http://www.update.microsoft.com
    5. Download and then install the latest MSXML security update.
