My operating system is Windows XP SP3, 32bit (running it on a Dell Inspiron which I bought in 2007 (I think).

 

Here's my problem:  For about the past week or so whenever the computer does it's "Automatic Update" thing, I've been getting the following message:

 

"Some updates could not be installed.  Security update for Microsoft.net framework 1.1 SP, on Windows XP Windows Vista & Windows Server 2008 X86.  (KB2833941)

 

Now I'm starting to get this message everytime I turn on the machine. 

 

Also when I turn off the machine, I'm advised that an update is being installed and the computer will shut down when completed.  Then, the next time I turn the computer on, the cycle begins all over again.

 

Anyone have any suggestions (besides buying a new computer :smash:

Thanks!

First try this...

Download and run Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool then visit Windows Update and let it try to reinstall the updates. Once it's done, scan again with Windows Update to make sure they installed correctly.

If that doesn't solve it try this...

Uninstall .NET Framework 1.1.
Reinstall .NET Framework 1.1
Download and install .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1
Visit Windows Update or Microsoft Update and let it install the rest of the 1.1 updates including KB2833941

 

Let me know which method worked for you.

Thanks, "X"...I'll try your reccommendations.  The thing is that the last time (yesterday) I went to windows update, I got a message stating I needed Internet Explorer??? :lmao:

I haven't used that browsers in years.  I'm strictly a Mozilla fan :love4u:

Anyway, I'll see what happens and get back.

The reason it is requesting IE is because you need Activex to download the updates.  IE has this, some browsers don't.

I had one guy try to install service pack 1 before the main 1.1. Make sure you are not doing the same. Let me know about this.

 

"The following not installed...Microsoft.net framwork 1.1 Service Pack 1" sounds like an incomplete message. Try again and see if that's the full message. If it's not, pay close attention to what is says and post the exact wording, error codes, etc of the message . Take a screenshot if necessary and attach it to your next reply.

Dear "X":  Tried to install updates again with the same result. :smash:   The message was as follows: 

 

Some updates could not be installed.  The following updates were not installed:  Microsoft.NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1

Sorry, hamluis but this doesn't work either.  Downloaded the file and it would not run.  Got the following message:  "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable...Click "ok" to try again or enter an alternative path to a folder containing the installation package "netfx.ms1" in the box below."

 

So...I clicked ok and got the following:  The path "C:\Docume~lowner\locals~1\Temp\1XP000.Tmp\netfx.ms1" cannot be found.  Verify that you have access to this location and try again or try to find the installation package "netfx.ms1" in a folder from which you can install the product Microsoft.Net Framework 1.1

 

And in the meantime I still get update messages that can't be installed.  This has gone from a minor annoyance to a problem. :devil: :smash:  Reg

Click start, run, browse and browse to NDP1.1sp1-KB867460-X86.exe. Double click it. The path will now be in the run dialog. After .exe add a space and /xp. It will ask you where you want to extract the package. Save it to your desktop. It should be named S867460.msp. Now, just double click to run it. It will apply the patch.

Use the Dotnetfx.exe file to install the .NET Framework 1.1. When you use this file to install the .NET Framework 1.1, the Windows Installer service on your computer is stopped before the installation process. To download the Dotnetfx.exe file, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=262D25E3-F589-4842-8157-034D1E7CF3A3&displaylang=en

Restart your computer, and then use the Netfx.msi Windows Installer package to install the .NET Framework 1.1.

Suit yourself but if you had done exactly what I posted, you would see no error message.

 

@sikntired, he's already got that installed.
