KB983583; KB982524 fail to install



Little activity in eternal september's microsoft.public.windowsupdate so
posted here too.
Appols for any confusion.

Security Update for .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 on Windows Server
2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB983583)
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Update for
Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB982524)

A while since I went back on the pc and some of it's updates don't seem to
have been going through.

It's XPPro SP3 with 2gig ram and Avast AV and Spybot's Teatimer (the latter
turned off during the install attempts)

The pc was on the MSUpdate site, and I have tried reverting to WIndows
Update, but I still get the message above after the installation has tried
to run for several minutes. Then it tells me I still need to update...

I have no idea why it is asking me about windows server either, as this is
just one little pc used for routine office work.
