Hi,

Uninstall .net version 1.1.

Reinstall it if you want to and try the update again.

But if you have .net 2 I don't think you need 1.

If you want to, but I don't think you need to.

No harm in trying, you can uninstall it if it don't work but it might.

Well no offence, but I don't think I wanna remove that, if it's only under a simple whim. Just trying to be safe, don't want my system getting unstable from doing something wrong that I didn't know about.

No I don't know why the update didn't work, but you don't need .net 1 having .net 2.
So it will not try to update something that is not there.

If there are any other issues that come up, post them.

Microsoft Update is a pain anyway. But it is needed.
