Windows Update issues
Windows Update keeps telling me I need to install this but it has already
done it 15 times today. I can't get rid of the Update icon or hide the
install either... Its driving me nuts. I installed BitDefender on Tues and
had this issue ever since

Installation date: ‎9/‎17/‎2009 3:36 PM

Installation status: Successful

that could allow an attacker to compromise your Windows-based system and gain
control over it. You can help protect your computer by installing this update

Did you contact BitDefender and ask them why their product will not
allow the installation of a *needed* Security update that addresses a
severe vulnerability ?
http://www.bitdefender.com/site/contact/

The repeated offering of KB955430 is explained in the 'Known issues with
this security update' section:
MS08-069: Description of the security update for XML Core Services 4.0:
November 11, 2008
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/954430

You can avoid this issue by either doing a Clean boot of XP:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310353
and then install the previously download automatic update or, download
the update and *save* it:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en

Boot to Safe Mode and then install it: A description of the Safe Mode
options in Windows XP
