    I keep getting a recurring windows update. I thought I was just behind on my updates (work away from home for long periods of time). When I went to check which updates were happening, it was the same one which I have downloaded close to a dozen times. "Service pack 2 security update for xml core services 4.0 service pack 2 (kb936181)" The little yellow update box keeps coming back. Can anyone get rid of this headache for me. I have been really good with content since my com got raped last year. RSVP Walter

    Do you have the Updates set to Automatic?

    After connecting to the Windows Update, select CUSTOM.

    Click on Review Other Updates if the one in question does not display.

    When the update is displayed enlarge the information box. At the bottom check the box that reads "Don't show this update again."
