Thread: Windows update keeps downloading same update

    Default Windows update keeps downloading same update

    I keep getting the notice "New updates are available", and I have sucessfully
    downloading Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack
    2 (KB936181) 8 times in the past 6 days.
    I have restarted Windows several times, but the updates keep coming! What
    can I do to satisfy Microsoft that I have sucessfully installed this update?

    Uninstall the update. Then find the update on MS's web-site and download
    the manual installation package and install it from there. I have a couple
    of installation packages that I had to do this for. It appears the Vista
    updates are not as rock solid as the XP updates.

    You tell Windows Update to not include the update. That would require that
    you put Windows Update in manual mode, you view the list of updates, you
    select the update you don't want, you right-click it, and you tell it to
    hide the update. You do that, and it's not coming to the machine in the
    updates.

    David, Here's the MS Download Center link:

    Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service Pack 2
    (KB936181)
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...8-185639ba2807

    You are correct about KB936181 Mike, except the issue is not limited to
    Vista : 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
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941729

    Applies to Automatic Updates as well even if the KB doesn't mention it.

    Thanks for the response. However, when I go to programs & features/installed
    updates, KB936181 is not listed. But in my update history, I see that it was
    "sucessfully installed" 11 times BEGINNING 7/14.
    Following MOWGREEN's input, I went to
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...8-185639ba2807
    and saved the download. But when I try to open it, I get the
    message..."Error opening log file. Verify that the specific log file location
    exists + is writable." Now I've gone from 8 to 11 updates "sucessfully
    installed". I'm reluctant to instruct UPDATE to disregard this update since
    it ts marked "important". If this update is truly imortant, why hasn't
    Microsoft fixed this download problem??? Is this somehow related to the auto
    update to SP1 I received on 7/13?

    You're not only interrupting, you're hijacking the thread.

    Start a new thread rather than jump into someone else's when you have
    a problem that is "almost same"..
