MSXML 4.0 SP2 Security Update (925672)

This update has been downloaded by Automatic Updates and installed by me more than a dozen times. How do I get it to stick? Do I need it?

Do you manually download the updates or does Windows automatically download them for you? Let us know.

Also, in any case the Automatic Updates service must be set to Automatic and Started. Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > click on Services.
In the list of Services, double click on Automatic Updates.
Make sure Startup Type is set to Automatic. Also click on the Started button > Apply > OK.

Hope this is helpful.

Automatic Update Settings

Automatic Updates is set to automatically download updates and warn before they're installed. I've opted to install this update from the icon in the System Tray quite a few times. I've also tried installing it by opting to Shut Down the PC and install updates.

The next time it comes up I'm going to select 'Custom' on the Automatic Updates install menu and opt not to ever see the update again. I would prefer to know if 1. I've actually got it and 2. is it good.

Maybe I should I uninstall the current installation (assuming it's there) and let it try again

Perhaps selecting "Automatic" so hopefully you won't
have to bother with it at all.

Or "Notify me but don't automatically download or install them", or "Turn off Automatic updates" and occasional manually download and install them using the link in the Start menu.

I do the latter about once a week so I am not interrupted by updates at all.

Hope this is helpful.
