    My Windows automatic update has asked me to download and
    install the following update every day for the past 5 days:

    "Security Update for Windows XP (329834)

    This update resolves the "Unchecked Buffer in PPTP
    Implementation Could Enable Denial of Service" security
    vulnerability in Windows XP and Windows XP Service Pack 1
    (SP1). Download now to help prevent an attacker from
    disrupting service on a server that offers private
    networking and uses the PPTP protocol."

    How do I install this update once and for all?
