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
Download the update and *save* it from the link on the above page.
Is KB936181 listed in Installed Updates |Add/Remove Programs [you've
neglected to supply the Version of Windows installed] ?
If yes, then uninstall it and then reboot the system to Safe Mode.
If no, boot to Safe Mode now.
Once in Safe Mode, open a Command Prompt and rename msxml4.dll, as shown
in the KB article. In Vista, open the Command Prompt with Elevated
Privileges by *right* click command and choosing 'Run as administrator'.
Follow the prompts.
Restart the system to normal Windows mode. IF you're prompted to install
the update again, decline it.
Now install msxml4-KB936181-enu.exe [ If Vista, *right* click and choose
'Run as ...' ]
Reboot after the installation finishes.
