    I have a fresh install of Vista and was constantly getting a windows
    installer failure message of "Error opening installation log file". The log
    file had not been created on my laptop and there was nothing for me to

    The solution (obvious in hind sight) was to download the patch exe and then
    right click and run as administrator.

    Sorry - downloading the executable from the link provided failed?

    If so, this indicates you have a problem with your web browser or internet
    connection. What web browser are you using?

    (This might also be caused by malware.)

    I just started getting the KB936181 notices today (8/14/08), but, unlike the
    original poster, I am running Windows XP/Pro SP3 on a fairly new machine.
    With the apparent exception of 936181 my system is up-to-date.

    Any thoughts?

    Update KB936181 "successful" almost daily since 8/14/07... MORE

    For what it is worth, it is popping up every few hours. Also, I checked for
    installed software and I couldn't find it in the list via the Control Panel.
    The Belarc Advisor was used to scan for any missing security updates, and it
    flagged this as missing with a link to this URL:;EN-US;Q936181

    For what it is worth, there was NO such error flagged before I installed SP3

    The cited URL gives some specific steps, which I intend to follow when I get
    a few minutes of slack time; alas, work takes priority. Any
    comments/suggestions would be appreciated.

    See this: Security Update for Microsoft XML Core Services 4.0 Service
    Pack 2 (KB936181) may repeatedly appear in the update list on Microsoft
    Update or on Windows Update

    If you can not rename msxml4.dll while in normal Windows mode suggest
    you boot to Safe Mode and rename it from a Command Prompt from within there.

    The issue *migh* be caused by the installation of printer/all-in-one
    software after KB936181 was applied as it should be listed in Add/Remove

    I had that problem too, solved it by saving the file to my desktop and then
    right clickingit and using Run as Administrator

    What ever i do its not working ... if any one knew the solution how to get
    rid of that prompt please lemme know.

    Download the update (from the download center) and install it while booted to
    safe mode.

    I'm having the exact same trouble and it will not allow me to fix it. What
    brand and model is your laptop?
