I need some help to resolve my dilemma here but first let me explained what

I installed Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 and the next day I was told there's
a couple of security update for it. Upon updating, I was told that the patch
KB922770, could not be successfully updated.

It's when I downloaded the patch (NDP20-KB922770-X86.exe) and install it
manually that I realised I didn't have sufficient disk space. I click
'cancel' to terminate the installation for the patch and perform Windows'
Disk Cleanup.

After deleting the temporary internet files, I realised that the installer
for KB922770 did not close properly and was hanged. I proceeded to terminate
it with Windows Task Manager.

When I retry running the patch manually, I was given the error message:
"Error 1305. Error reading from file C:\WINNT\Installer\77e595.msi Verify
that the file exists and that you can access it."

I checked and find no Installer folder in WINNT nor were there any 77e595.
msi file.

I reinstalled Microsoft Installer 3.1 v2 (WindowsInstaller-KB893803-v2-x86.
exe) and the same error message persists. When I tried to uninstall
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, it tells me:

"Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 has encountered a problem during setup. Setup
did not complete correctly."

There was an option to Send Report and a link, 'What data does this report
contain?' When clicked to view its contents, it reads...


So now I'm stucked. I can overwrite the installation with a fresh
installation and neither can I uninstall it.

Can anyone be so kind as to help please? Thank you very much in advance.

P/S: OS is Windows 2000 with SP4.

First, make sure that you can view System Files and Folders, and Show Hidden
Files and folders in Folder Options.

The Installer folder is considered a System folder and may be hidden.

Also check the .log or .txt files when you try running the Patch. Or there
may be a KB*.log file in C:\Winnt folder which may contain the errors.
