Hello,

I've have noticed that my laptop XP will not successfully download 2 updates from the MS Windows site. After running a full scan with Trend Micro Internet Security, it also warned me of these as well and directed me to Windows download site. I'm not sure why this will not successfully download but there has to be a reason. Please see attached for both.

If you can add any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

Dell
XP
Service Pack 3

Best regards,
Mike

Hello

The only way I've found that works to stop Net Framework installation failures is to basically start over. You'll need to uninstall all versions of Net Framework beginning with the lowest version, then reinstall them beginning with the lowest version.

All the Net Framework versions up to version 3.5 are available for download and instructions for the removal and re-installation are located in this Microsoft Article. There is also a Net Framework Cleanup Utility available on the same page that you could use to automate the process a little more.

Hello,

Thanks for the reply. I just hope MS Windows doesn't miss this one like it did with the others. Funny how this happens especially when it's all 100% MS include the OP and software. However, now I can see how they are losing ground in other areas. Many thanks!!

Best regards,
Mike
