Well... That's really strange. So if you type in command prompt window only net you get that this is not recognized as an internal or external command?

My fault. I had launched CP by typing 'command prompt' in the 'run' box instead of using the shortcut, cause that didn't work. My 'all programs' shortcuts are somehow corrupted. I stopped using them some time ago. Is there a need to correct this?
Now I launched CP by typing 'cmd' in the 'run' box and it worked. I'll set WU to update the next full hour and report back later.

Sorry I should have been more precise. I followed these steps already. I set WU to update at 6 PM. Anything I can do to test WU except waiting till 6 pm? Should I try the webservice update?

Hi,

Well... This is nothing special. It's just a security update for .NET Framework 4 and many times there are problems with these updates.

Did you tried to update it through Windows Update here: http://update.micros...icrosoftupdate/ ?

If you still can't install it try the following:

Download Dotnetfx cleanup tool from here to your desktop.
Unzip it and run tool.
Select to remove .NET Framework 4 (there is a drop window asking which .NET Framework you wish to remove, make sure you select .NET Framework 4).
This tool will safely remove client profile part of .NET Framework 4. You will not be able to remove it by using add/remove programmes as normal because it has become corrupt.
Once tool has removed files restart computer and check windows update. You should find .NET Framework 4 client profile offered as an update(KB982670).
Download and install this.
Restart computer again and run windows update again.
You should be offered the problem KB2446708 as a high priority update.
Install this and it should be fine, you shouldn't see it reappear again as before.

Things are looking brighter again. The Windows Update internet service is working again now. PSI tells me that everything's up-to-date. I don't know whether Automatic Update works. Anyway I can check if it does?

Do I need to worry about the corrupt start menu / all programs shortcuts? When I click on any of them Spybot S&D scans the shortcut, finds nothing and that's it. Same with Quick Launch icons. I got used to not using them, so unless there's some thread I might choose to ignore the issue altogether.

Thanks for helping.

You will see sooner or later. But it's not such a big deal if you occasionally check for updates manually.

How are you using your computer then? :)

Please delete all non-working shortcuts in Start menu and follow the steps below:

Please download this tool here.

You will need to unzip the tool first.

I followed your procedure, but nothing changed about the behaviour of the start menu / all programs and quick launch short cuts. The newly created behave just like the old ones did: Spybot S&D shows up, finds nothing and that's it.

After the shortcut trouble started I made links to the 20 or so most frequently used programs in the start menu, but not in the all programs folder. These work just fine. I look up the less frequently used programs in the program files folder. I use FreeCommander and created some custom short cuts there. The most trouble has been making the short cuts and looking up the ways to access the items in the accessoires folder. I learned to look up stuff to type in the 'run' box to open them. Except for that inconvinience, the only usability issue is that the startup folder doesn't work, so psi tray won't run at startup.

I just restarted after the last updates and now the Windows Firewall is turned off and can't be turned on 'due to an unidentified problem'. Any suggestions?
Edit: Grrrr. or Yeah. False Alarm. The Firewall is working again. You can ignore this last comment.
