I had the same problem a few weeks ago and it was suggested that I attempt to uninstall and reinstall all versions of .NET Framework via Add/Remove Programs. .NET Framework 2.0 would not uninstall so I left it alone. .NET Framework 2.5 uninstalled and I chose not to reinstall it. I don't need it and you might not need it either. It's a weird product. No more update attempts and no other problems.

FWIW: Any of the NET Framework distributions...is only needed by certain users. Those users would be employing a game, drivers, or programs...which make an install of some version of MS.NET a prerequisite for proper functioning of said program/drivers/game.

My experience is that...such applications will let a user know...if MS.NET is required. I have only come across two applications...ATI drivers and nLite...where I had to have some version installed.

I have two systems...one has MS.NET installed, the other doesn't have any version installed...both systems work flawlessly.
