In the last update I made the package "MSXML 4.0 SP2 Security Update (925672)" was not installed and Microsoft gave me the error "0xBC2". What is this? I have the windows XP SP2.
Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Darthy

Did you in the past month or so make a registry change to prevent malware from taking advantage of a VML vulnerability?

Does the info below look familiar to you as something you might have done in the past month?

"...users will need to issue a command to disable VML rendering until the official patch comes out. The commands are:
Disable VML
regsvr32 -u "%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VGX\vgx.dll

Enable VML
regsvr32 "%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VGX\vgx.dll

To execute these commands, simply hit the "Start" button and click "Run". copy-paste the disable VML command in to the line and click ok. You will get a "RegSvr32" popup notice that says DllUnregisterServer in succeeded. Once the patch is available and you've applied it, repeat the process with the enable VML command." (Emphasis mine)

Did you download and install the updates Microsoft released this Tuesday?
one of them is the following:
Security Update for Windows XP (KB924191)

A security issue has been identified in the way Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) is handled that could allow an attacker to compromise a Windows-based system and gain control over it.

Excuse me this question again guys:
If the Security Update for Windows XP (KB924191) was successfully instaled, why MSXML 4.0 SP2 Security Update (925672) was not and gave me the error "0xBC2"?
Thanks again,
Darthy

I don't know, but any problem with Microsoft or Windows updates is covered by Microsoft support at no charge.

Microsoft Security Product Support Policy

Technical support is available from Microsoft Product Support
Services at 1-866-PC SAFETY (1-866-727-2338).
(or you can use the support options on the Windows or Microsoft Updates page)

There is no charge for support calls associated with security updates.

International customers can get support from their local Microsoft
subsidiaries. Phone numbers for international support can be found
at: http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx

From the:
Microsoft Security Bulletin - Summary for August, 2006
http://www.net-security.org/advisory.php?id=6606

I suggest you take advantage of that. I had a problem downloading the last updates and they responded in one day with the fix for it.
