Hi

I am having problems installing window updates (using XP with SP3)on my PC. Can download OK from Windows Update site OK but then the downloads wont install, and I have no idea why. Does anyone have any thoughts.

Many thanks

Grandpa

Give this a try: How to troubleshoot common Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Windows Server Update Services installation issues

Run the FixIt that pops up, see if that helps.

Hi

Many thanks. I downloaded .Net Framework 4 didn't work (updates) then I downloaded .Net Framework2 then did the fix, and all updates worked like a dream.

Do I need .Net Framework 4 or can this be deleted,

kind regards

Grandpa

Leave it. If not needed now it will be sooner or later.
