When I download/install automatic updates, anything that is .NET framework fails to install. Why so?
intelligence has far fewer practical applications than I thought.

You probably have a corrupt .Net installation. Try to remove all .Net components and updates them from add/remove programs and redownload and install them.

If you are still unable to do updates, remove them again, then download and run .Net Framework Cleanup Tool to force removal and cleanup of all .net installations. Then reinstall again and things should work.

To add to Gabrial's suggestion...I find that Mr. Stebner's tool (linked to by Gabrial) will remove all installations of MS.NET from the system and I believe the updates go when the parents go.

Then reinstall whatever NET application you really need (not all systems need any version of NET...I run one system without, one system with NET Framework 3.5, SP1).

Then go to Windows Update for the critical updates which relate.
