  • When you remove security update 925673 for MSXML 6.0, MSXML 6.0 is completely removed from the computer.
  • Security update 925672 for MSXML 4.0 SP2 does not support the complete removal of MSXML 4.0 because this version of MSXML is installed in side-by-side mode. To work around this issue, follow these steps:
    1. Remove security update 925672 by using the Add or Remove Programs item in Control Panel.
    2. Delete the MSXML4.dll file from the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder.
    3. Repair MSXML 4.0 by using the Add or Remove Programs item in Control Panel.
    The earlier versions of the Msxml4.dll and Msxml4r.dll files are restored to both the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder and the side-by-side folder.
  • The security update packages for MSXML 3.0 only update the MSXML3.dll file. The resource files are not updated for this version.
  • If the Msxml4.dll file is locked, the file may not be updated when you apply security update MS06-071 for MSXML 4.0, for MSXML 4.0 SP1, and for MSXML 4.0 SP2. To work around this issue, use the following commands to uninstall Msxml4.dll:
    • MsiExec.exe /uninstall {A9CF9052-F4A0-475D-A00F-A8388C62DD63} /passive
    • Del %windir%\system32\msxml4.dll
