This is a problem on a Sony Vaio Laptop with 512MB RAM running on XP Home SP3.
Basically I reviewed the update history on the Microsoft Windows Update site and found that 2 updates are constantly failing to install for some reason.
The first one is:
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 & .Net Framework 3.5 Family Update for .NET versions 2.0 through 3.5 (KB951847) x86
This has been trying to update since the 11th of August without success.
The second one is:
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 Security Update for Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, and Windows Server 2008 RC2 (KB953297).
This has been trying to update since the 15th October without success.
On clicking the failure icon it just reports the error as:
Error Code: 0x643
I'm assuming this is a pretty generic error code which won't help much! I understand from a few Google searches that a lot of people have had this problem in one form or another, but there are a variety of solutions and i'm not sure which one to try as I don't want to break anything!
Can anybody point me in the right direction here, I can provide as much information as you require.
I'm trying to solve this because i've been recieving a BSOD on the laptop at random times, and i'm wondering if this is the cause, so eliminating this problem would be of great help!
Thanks in advance for any help!
