I have installed it about 6 times now and all say the installation is successful But everytime update checks for updates it keeps wanting to install it. The only way to now stop it is to hide the update. Anyone got any ideas, Have checked the microsoft site but that sends me around in circles

Win Vista Home Premium with service pack one

Thanks

Is this through windows auto update? If so try a manual download and install to see if it still happens

Try this (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/941729)

1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER.

2. At the command prompt, type ren %windir%\System32\msxml4.dll msxml4.old, and then press ENTER.

Then reinstall the file you downloaded

Its only if you use the latest IE. So don't.
Relying on MS to protect you is like getting the burglar to guard your door.

Thanks Speedie, that worked, but then win update came through with another update to that one and that also was being offered everytime win update checked for updates, so after a lot of searching I uninstalled the last update and manually downloaded it from Microsoft and reinstalled. AND NO MORE REPEAT UPDATES... (i hope)
