    I am having the exact same problem. The computer tells me that the install
    in complete. I check the history and it says the install is successful, but
    everytime I get ready to shut down, the same update keeps popping up. Please

    I"m also having problems with the Microsoft service pack thing... I've gone
    to the web site you mentioned, and i can't make any sense of it. I'm too
    afraid to follow the prompts as I can't find the exact codes mentioned in the
    document. I have xp, not vista, will i bugger my computer if i throw caution
    to the wind and make a few guesses? or am i better off sending my week old
    computer back to the makers and getting them to fix it?

    The problem is that there are literally MILLIONS and MILLIONS of different
    combinations of hardware and software existing on machines round the world.
    MS cannot POSSIBLY test their updates against that HUGE number of different
    configurations...they would never get out of Redmond....

  8. Unfortunately the problems typically are not caused by the Microsoft software,
    but by third-party software which interferes with the proper operation of
    Windows. There is very little Microsoft can realistically do about this.

    It's not comforting to *finally* find this (after searching the Microsoft
    Updates pages for umpteen minutes to begin with) and then to discover that
    people have been having this SAME PROBLEM since November, 2007?? I didn't
    start having it until I recently downloaded/installed the new Windows XP
    Service Pack 3 just last week. I keep getting the alert to download
    Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 Security Update KB936181.....I
    keep thinking that I shouldn't even be receiving this that I
    have Windows XP Service Pack 3??????

    Please help fix this, Microsoft! It's ridiculous to continue to be
    annoyed with the same alert to dl/install the same update...I've now done it
    successfully 24 times over the past handful of days! But I'm not
    technologically saavy enough to "not" respond to the alert and to do it. I
    have everything set on Automatic Updates, and yet the little yellow warning
    sign still appears in my status bar down in the right hand corner...asking me
    to dl/install separately from any Automatic Update function setting I have.
    Obviously there's an update history says that I've successfully
    installed the same update 24 times! Get with it, Microsoft~~~

    .....and I agree with some of the posters below....surely someone from
    Microsoft monitors and addresses these issues????????????????

  10. Have you bothered to read the Known Issues section of KB936181?

    And you read: Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service
    Pack 2
    (KB936181) may repeatedly appear in the update list on Microsoft
    Update or on Windows Update:

    And of course, you would naturally have checked the Known Issues section -

  12. This update does apply to Windows XP service pack 3. (The "service pack 2" in
    the update title refers to the XML Core Services software, not to Windows XP.)

    PA Bear and TaurArian have already provided the information necessary to get
    this update to successfully install, at which point it will no longer be offered
    by Automatic Updates.
