net framework 4 update problem

Likes # 0

Hi there.

I am installing Windows Updates on my lapyop but it seems to be having trouble. When it gets to installing a certain update the system freezes and needs to be restarted.

The first time it happened it got stuck on UPDATE FOR MICEOSOFT NET FRAMEWORK 4. I had to do System Restore to get the laptop runnung again and this time I bypassed the 3 updates the had that heading but then in got stuck on SECURITY UPDATE FOR MICROSOFT NET FRAMEWORK 4.

Does anyone know why it is not installing these updates and how to fix the problem.

Thanks

I am a little reserved about doing the Cleanup Tool because it says any changes I make will be permanent. I take it that meana I will not ne able to use System Restore if something goes wrong?

Just to confirm, after I do the cleanup I install NET FRAMEWORK 4 CLIENT PROFILE-STAND ALONE INSTALLER?

I would replace what I was removing with the same thing so I would, as you say, reinstall net framework 4 client profile stand alone installer.

Just wondered if you had resolved your problem. There is a discussion a bout the same think on another forum to which I subscribe. There has recently been an update to the .Net Framework Repair Tool - this is the link.

Thanks for the tip difarn. I will give it a try. I have not used the clean-up tool yet as I have been trying to make a system image in case anything went wrong but it seem to take forever to do at it takes 6-7 disks to make it. Is that notmal? The link you have given me seems to resolve the problem that I have so I will give it a try and keep you posted.

When you are using disks to make a system image it can take 6/7 of them and will take some time.

Glad to hear that things may be getting sorted.

SUCCESS!!! The solution difarn suggested seems to have worked. The program took roughly 20 seconds to do its magic and then I tried installing the windows updates that were giving me trouble and it installed most of them without any problems. There were a couple of updates that it wasn't able to download so I just tried restarting the computer and trying again and after a couple of attempts all the updates were installed. Thanks to difarn and everyboby else who helped with this problem. Bye.
