I have been having a big problem for the last few months with an update fore "Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2 (KB936181).
I have downloaded it at least 12 times and it shows in Windows Update History that many times that is Installed successfully.
I have put in the "Hidden Files" with "Windows Update" and it still keeps showing up in the lower task bar.
When I click on the Icon it pops up showing the update. I Click download and it goes away.
Then it pops up with window that says Express install or Custom. I click on custom to see what it is and then Install and it does it's thing.
Then comes back again.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Instead download MSXML 4.0 SP3 from here : http://www.microsoft.com/DOWNLOADS/details...;displaylang=en
Install this update, it supersedes MSXML 4.0 SP2.

Hello Romeo29,
I did what you said and it did not work. I tried it 3 times to no avail.
I spent about 8 hours messing with all kinds of this, even in safe mode. Nothing changed.
While I was looking at things I looked at Windows Update in the Control Panel. I had them set to Download and Notify me when they were available. (I was up-to-date as far as I knew. I downloaded everything that came along).
I changed it to Automatically Download and restarted my computer.
As of right now, all the problems I had seem to have disappeared..

Thanks for the help and i will repost if things change.........
