Hi Experts:

My automatic Updates keep pop up ask to install this MSXML 4.0 SP2 Security Update, everytime I press Install button, seems like it is installing and it gave the install successful message afterward, but 5 mins later, the automatic updates pop up again to ask me install this update, this happend over and over again, and I just keep press the install button. Also seems everytime I  tried to install it, it created these folder with name like 2ddd10f8afef08ef548dc76cb21c, and have a msxml4-KB927978-enu.log kinda text file in the folder, I am not sure what is that. Can anyone tell me what's the problem here?

BTW, the .log file looks like this:

=== Verbose logging started: 1/30/2007  11:40:19  Build type: SHIP UNICODE 3.01.4000.2435  Calling process: C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe ===
