Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Service Pack for PC

3 Answers

Windows update KB954430 is always in the queue to be installed.

For quite some time every time I shut down I am asked to install KB954430. While the machine is booted I see an icon in my tray that asks to install this same patch. I have watched the download progress window and have seen it say that installation was complete.

    Same thing here. It is persitent after reboot and after installing directly from MS update. It's annoying. Probably will hack it out but if someone has an easy fix, please let me know

    Same here, I looked for the update in the list of installed programs and updates but it is not to be found. Hope this gets solved soon.

    thanks

I had the same problem with Vista. You need to manually download the patch and run as administrator. It has worked several times with me. Try these steps:

  1. Download the patch KB954430 manually from microsoft. Save it temporarily on you're desktop. Just go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=96a4413c-5261-4f69-83d0-932c430abd14&displaylang=en

    or if you don't like clicking on links, google "KB954430" and click on the second link labeled "Download details: MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 2 (KB954430)" at microsoft.com.

  2. Close Internet Explorer
  3. Right click on the KB954430 installation file that was just downloaded to your desktop (msxml4-KB954430-enu.exe)
  4. Select 'Run as Administrator'
  5. If you are asked, select 'Run' then 'Continue'.
  6. Select 'Next'
  7. Click on the 'Remove' icon, then select 'Remove'
  8. Select 'Finish'
  9. Follow steps 3-6 again.
  10. Accept License Agreement then click 'Next'
  11. Click 'Next' again
  12. Click 'Install Now' icon
  13. Click 'Finish'
And you're done. Hope this helps.

There is a problem with the file msxml4.dll, it is not updating.
This needs to be renamed. Then download the KB954430 update file manually from Microsoft update. Install the update (it should be an executable .exe) and the problem should be fixed.

Here are the official Microsoft instructions.

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

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.

Note After you press ENTER, you may receive the following error message.
Cannot find the file specified.
Ignore this message, and go to step 3.
3. At the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.
4. Visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://www.update.microsoft.com (http://www.update.microsoft.com)
5. Download and then install the latest MSXML security update.

Have you checked your programs install and remove in the control panel. If you have installed the patch, it should be in there.

How to restore and then update dell 8300


Usually, after you re-install ... and set UPDATE mode (for Windows & IE) to automatic ... the system will look for and download updates (to Windows, browsers, etc.) automatically. So, shut down and restart ... and let it do it's (automatic) download & install . It may take quite a while, to bring you up to the latest Windows XP version.

I was running the program "windon Defender" on it and walked away. When I returned the computer was off and wasn't turn back on.


The Windows Defender Application is the Antivirus Software which will be pre-installed with the Windows Operating System(Windows Vista, Windows 7).
The Computer will always Shut down after any Windows Updates or any Operating System Updates are downloaded and installed.
If you are connected to the Internet and running Windows Defender, the Computer will automatically download the Updates for the Windows Defender Application.
Once the Updates are downloaded and installed, the Computer will prompt for a shut down.
The count down will be for 10 seconds.
After 10 seconds, the Computer will install the downloaded Updates and shut down.
This might be the reason for the Computer to shut down while using the Windows Defender.

If the Computer still shuts down randomly, the issue might be due to overheating.
All the Processors in Notebooks are designed to shut down automatically, if there is any overheating issues.
The overheating issue mainly occurs due to the malfunction of the Cooling fan.
If the Computer shuts down frequently, the issue might be due to the above factors.
It would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.

My computer is constantly installing Windows updates


They may not be installing properly, choosing to try again every time you turn your computer on.

Be proactive - turn automatic update off ... go to the update site, see what updates want to load, select one or two and do them manually. When you get caught up, turn the auto update back on.

Let me know what hapens.

How do i install updates


Some updates need to be installed separately, the system restarted, and then more updates are being downloaded and installed.

You can always open the "Windows Update" from Start Menu, or alternatively open Internet Explorer and choose Tools -> Windows Update, and do what the site tells you to. You will see all the updates available and still needing to be installed, and also information if a given update needs to be installed separately.

Good luck :)
