Problem when installing Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 via autoupdates


G

Gerald Bramwell

Hi,

I've been getting an unusual thing happening when using auto updates. I
get the little icon and am told I have Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Update for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP
x86 (KB982524) waiting to be installed. I click on install and it runs
through and says install completed, and I then restart the PC. On boot
up I have the little icon for updates again and find the update waiting
is Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Update
for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB982524). On going to the
update history I find that it says that it has been installed 3 times
yet it still keeps telling me it needs to be installed.

any ideas?

Gerald

KB982524 is an Optional, non-security update: Feel free to hide it.

====================

1. Stop the Automatic Updates service:

Start > Run > (type in) services.msc > [OK]
Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Stop
(Stopping the service will take a moment)

2. Delete the contents of the Download folder:

Start > Run > (type in) %windir%\SoftwareDistribution > [OK]
Open the Download folder and delete its contents
Close the window.

3. Go to Windows Update website | Select CUSTOM and allow the scan to
complete | Uncheck/deselect KB982524 and hide it ("Don't show me this update
again").

4. Start the Automatic Updates service:

Start > Run > (type in) services.msc > [OK]
Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Start
(Starting the service will take a moment)
