    I've installed this update 13 times with no error code. It says successful
    every time, and yet it keeps wanting to install this update again? Does
    anyone know what the problem is or how to fix this?

  2. It's sometimes wise to glance around before/while you are asking. It's
    often surprising what one can find just by looking. ;-)

    Now is a great time to point you to one of the easiest ways to find
    information on problems you may be having and solutions others have found:

    Search using Google!
    (How-to: http://www.google.com/intl/en/help/basics.html )

    A search of this specific newsgroup alone for the past year turns up
    several hits - just searching for "954430" in the message body, in fact,
    I find I have responded to people with similar issues several times
    over. I will repeat the answer I gave here - so it will be out there one
    more time for anyone who wishes to search for it. ;-)

    Also - you might want, for future reference, present your operating
    system edition, version, service pack level, etc in your posting.

    Start button --> RUN
    (no "RUN"? Press the "Windows Key" + R on your keyboard)
    --> type in:
    --> Click OK.

    The picture at the top of the window that opens will give you the general
    (Operating System name) while the line starting with the word "version"
    will give you the rest of the story. Post _both_ in response to this
    message verbatim. ;-)

    As for the update you mentioned...

    Viewing the Knowledge Base Article for the update:

    Under "Known issues with this security update", you might read this:

    "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. For more information about this issue, click
    the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge

    Which naturally leads you here:

  4. I found a post from Rami (Microsoft Ansers Support Engineer) that helped
    although I had to modify his instructions. Now I can't find his post to copy
    an paste, but will tell you what I did. Apparently the auto update doesn't
    properly install & that's why it keeps trying over and over again so you have
    to install it manually. Download the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to the
    desktop. Right click on the file and click Run As. On one of the next couple
    of screens, choose Administrator, enter password and then follow the
    installation wizard. After you do that, then go to Security Update for MSXML
    4.0 Service Pack 2 (KB954430) to manually download the update. Then just like
    above, right click and run as administrator. Since it already installed on my
    computer but kept trying to update I chose to delete the installation. After
    it was deleted, I ran thru the above again and installed the update. Once I
    restarted my computer, the update stopped appearing. Hope this works for you.
