Good afternoon:
I own a compaq running windows xp media Center Edition version 2002 service pack 3
Today I recieved a notice from windows update that updates were avaiable for net frame work 2.0 service pack so I installed them restarted my system and went to microsoft update to see if anything else was avaible the same stuff i just installed was still there so I X'd out but the icon for updates was back in my tray I looked into it and it's the same updates again. Something in the program is corrupted I tried to fix it by going to add remove programs and clicking the change button on net framework sp2 but there was a fatal error and would not install over the old one. Next I tried to uninstall and hoped to reinstall but recieved the message i can't uninstall as there are programs that need this. I know there are ways to uninstall and reinstall to correct this but for the life of me I could not find the info i need. As of now every time i shut my computer off the same 3 updates reinstall and when I turn my computer on the same three down load again. Can you help me?
Thank you for your time
Larry
P.S. I did run CC Cleaner v3.18.1707 Registery Cleaner but that didn't help either.
I also ran Norton internet security 2010 , Spybot search and destroy and malware bytes in case it was a virus or malware but only found a few cookies

A suggestion for you to try ldstoodley

Removing bad updates then reinstalling them

Go into Add/Remove Programs
Click the little box on the top that says Show All Updates
Scroll through and find the offending update/s and remove it/them.
Now try updating again and see if it corrects the faulty update.
