I have Vista home premium and am very pleased with it but I do have one problem, XML core service 4.0 service pack keeps installing.
All other updates install fine but this is driving me nuts, it installs then says she has successfully installed then a minute later the little icon apears to tell me it's an update and needs to install.
Basically the darn thing is continually installing, obviously there is something wrong with it and I don't know how to fix it.
Anybody got any ideas?

From the technet forum

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel and select Programs and Features. Then Uninstall all entrys related to Microsoft XML core services (These will be clearly marked)
Then close everything down back to the desktop and do a search for updates and you should get the normal 1 XML Core Services 4.0 update. Unstall this and it should fix the problem.

Then download it directly
