Gets even deeper. For what ever reasons I was in my document files and I notice about 2-3 dozen or more weird icons listed.... I popped one open and it's that same damn auto download load that's been showing up that I cannot get rid of. I've turned off the auto up load yesterday and turned it back on this afternoon. Shows 5 new updates.... do you what to update ? click yes. It goes off and does it thing...... now the yellow sheild up again. Theirs the same one..... I turned off the auto again... tried the manual..... same security update... as before. Hair pulling time..... turned it off
This system is a Dell 4300 it's 5+ years old........

Problem is that for the average user it will be "out of site, out of mind" The resources used are not significant, (or they really need to dump the P133 with 128 Meg and get a new computer) and if you want to be in control, set it to 'notify' you when updates are available, and you can choose the 'when' to d/l and install.

If you haven't read this page:

MS08-069: Vulnerabilities in Microsoft XML Core Services could allow remote code execution

I am wondering if the file that is supposed to be replaced (Msxml6r.dll) isn't being replaced and the update keeps seeing the older file version and wants to download again as a result. Notice that you should be able to determine the correct date and file size from the information given on this page.

Check if the file is read only, and change it?
