I do have what I think is the right file. It's called dotnetfx.exe 237,954kb dated 1st march 22:20
Auto updates WAS switched OFF and has stayed that way all the time.
I just took out Online armor Firewall & programs ; also AVAST
Double clicked on the dotnet file.
Time 20:05 Setup is loading installation components.
20:07 Welcome to setup 3.5 SP1 Set Up
Read conditions & Accepted
File Size 111kb
20~08 Install (click)
"Highly recommended to download latest securiy and service packs." (I didn't)
So Looked at Windows Update History again and the last entry is still 27th Feb.
You said it looks as though it has already been uploaded and I agree that it does, but the update history doesn't give us any mention of kb951847 ever having a green tick. 4 of the other 6 have at one time been successful but not 951847. AND How on earth can the update history NOT show anything for last night's efforts and the one I've just done. Could it be recording elsewhere. Would it be written to the Event log as well ?
I've been looking at EVENT Viewer Application logs etc from Control Panel. Tonights efforts generated the only entry since 09:43 this morning as follows
Information Msilnstaller event 11728
Description Product Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
Configuration completed successfully.
Clicking on the entry line produces extra screen info :-
File Name msi.dll
Looking in the same event log for last nights efforts I can find a similar msilnstaller entry with exactly the same extra screen info from a line that says
22:33 Product RGB9RAST Installation completed successfully.
Is there any way that I can copy the Event viewer files to you ? Or can you hack into my maxhine ? I'm sure you'll find some interesting events in the logs.
Some of the failure entries say "The description for event can not be found" and in the system log "the specified event could not be found" ( where the extra screen program name is netevent.dll).
Also there are a number of separate single YELLOW coloured entries recording a disk hiccup.
Am available tomorrow , but Friday Saturday and Sunday will be very difficult without a prior divorce.
