Security updates for MS.NET Framework 2.0 SP2 (KB2656352 - KB2633880 - KB2572073) are downloaded and installed....again and again,
for a month or two now. Looking at update history the installs show the green checkmark but I have to wonder if something
inside the machine is not registering the valid install.
The computer itself is running great (since a reinstall Aug 2011)

Thanks for any input. PLR

I had the same problem a while back and they are faulty updates. .NET Framework is not essential. It is required by some apps but you may not need any version. You should attempt to uninstall all versions of .NET Framework via Add/Remove Programs. If any version won't uninstall, leave it alone. That means you need it. After you finish, run the cleanup tool at the link below. That should get rid of the faulty updates. You can reinstall .NET Framework if you like but it's not necessary. I did not reinstall them and have had no issues.

I would amend Frank's suggestion...you can either...use the cleanup tool to remove all installs of MS.NET...or...you can uninstall all versions via Add/Remove Programs (do not bother with updates to any version), starting with uninstalling the latest version first and working backwards to the oldest.
