Wooo hooo.

Send 'er round, unkyUb  :lol:


When I read what KB was causing the problem, I was going to post this, but I won't bother now  :D

•   Security update 936181 for Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) 4.0, for MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and for MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2) does not support the complete removal of MSXML 4.0. This situation occurs because this version of MSXML is installed in side-by-side mode. To work around this issue, follow these steps:   1.   Remove security update 936181 by using the Add or Remove Programs item in Control Panel.
2.   Delete the Msxml4.dll file from the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder.
3.   Repair the previous installation of MSXML 4.0 by using the Add or Remove Programs item in Control Panel.

The earlier versions of the Msxml4.dll file and of the Msxml4r.dll file are restored to the side-by-side folder and to the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder.
•   You may receive the following error message when you install security update 936181 from Windows Update:
Could not register type library for file c:\Windows\system32\msxml4.dll. Contact your support personnel.
When this error occurs, you may also notice information that resembles the following in the log file:
Error 1911. Could not register type library for file c:\Windows\system32\msxml4.dll. Contact your support personnel.
MSI (s) (20:18) [17:52:31:612]: Product: MSXML 4.0 SP2 (KB936181) -- Error 1911. Could not register type library for file c:\Windows\system32\msxml4.dll. Contact your support personnel.

=== Verbose logging stopped: 11/10/2006 17:53:07 ===
To work around this problem, manually install the security update from the Microsoft Download Center, and then click Ignore when the error message is displayed. To confirm that the installation was successful, verify that the Msxml4.dll file in %systemroot%\System32 is version 4.20.9848.0.

Can I  safely  delete this  darn update and start again ??   
 If so, how  ? 

Yes you can, just use "Add or remove programs"
If you have more than one for the same update, just remove them all one-by-one.
Although it will try and download again the next time you update.

Are you still getting the notice from the shutdown button?

Also which AV and Firewall are you using.
(Just wondering if it's just the (shield) notification that windows does not recognise either you AV or firewall)
(Which can be disabled in windows, Control panel > "Security Center")
Just out of curiosity, take a look there and see if it's showing anything as not being protected.

OF .....  All is well  ....see my Eureke above  .....  I removed the offending update, then went onto the Updates site and let it do it again, it all seems FINE now.    I've learned some quite interesting things whilst doing this  ..... thanks for your interest and help.

Sorry Kate.
We are now on page 3, I must have somehow skipped past all of the posts above on this page so did not see it.
