Thank you in advance.
I have tried everything I know but still updates won't install. I have run Symantec, McCafee, Malwarebytes, ESET, AVG, etc...
In services, updates are set to automatic. The pc runs VERY slowly. I have a stick of RAM somewhere. Looking for it now, but don't think that would stop automatic updates. I need your expertise!

I hope you are running all those anti virus programs at the same time. If you are running more than one anti virus it will cause problem, like false positives.

Are you getting the download and they are then not installing?

Are you getting the message that updates are ready to install?

Thanks for quick response. No, not running them all at once. Symantec is my anti-virus. Running others, each separately, hoping to find something symantec won't. Updates are downloading but not installing. I am getting the message that they are ready to install.

Try the following.
Re-register the Windows Update DLL with the commands below

Copy and paste each of the following commands. Press ENTER after each command.

You re-registered the Windows Update DLL.

Do your updates install now?

Try downloading the SP1 manually from Download details: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1

I hate to cut and run, but I have to get going. I will be back late this afternoon or early evening if you still need assistance.

I had exactly the same problem a couple of months ago. You may need some versions of .NET Framework but you probably don't need them all. I attempted to uninstall all versions using Add/Remove Programs and you will also need a Microsoft cleanup tool that I'm sure someone else has the link. One version was in use and would not uninstall but the rest did and I didn't bother to reinstall them. No more failed updates. Obviously it's some sort of bug. Then if you download an app in the future that requires .NET Framework, you can do so if necessary.

Actually...all the updates listed relate to NET 3.5, SP1 (which includes some of 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5).

I would try uninstalling NET Framework 3.5, SP1 via Add/Remove Programs...and then download it and install it anew.
