My OS is Windows XP Pro, SP3. I attempted to download and install the latest batch of updates that came down a few days ago, and all appeared to install OK with the exception of the NET Framework 1.1 SP1 security update. Dialog box simply stated that the update was not installed. I looked at my updates in Add/Remove software, and noticed that Net Framework 1.1 SP1 did not even appear on the list. I went to the Microsoft page and downloaded SP1 and tried to install it, thinking that the security update might not install if SP1 was not there to begin with. However, when I attempted to run SP1 installation, I told me that SP1 was already installed. I'm not sure why I can't see SP1 in the updates list. Looking for some instruction on where to go from here. Thanks! John.

I neglected to note, the update in question is KB2742597, if that is important.
