Windows 7: how to remove msxml4 without breaking stuff

how to remove msxml4 without breaking stuff

Kaspersky scan says my two msxml4.dll files are vulnerable, one in SysWOW64 the other in NTI Media Maker's Program Files folder.

I thought that Windows Update was supposed to keep it updated automatically (right? wrong?)
But if WU won't keep them updated, I'd rather just ununstall them, but ... how can I tell who uses them, and what might break if I remove them.

thank you, Jacee. I mainly wanted to figure out who depends on those particular versions so as to avoid breaking something, but I went ahead and uninstalled them via cpanel last night, and so far no problems. Thanks very much for the links.
