Computer caught in UPDATES LOOP

    Earlier I tried to install fee trial NERO 10 from WWW. Did not intall
    and I think it was a .NET issue. Tried then to install NERO 9 Lite, that
    failed to install.

    Anyway, on boot-up I notice that Automatiic Updates wants to install 3
    updates KB979909; KB974417; KB982168.

    These initialise and install. But sometime on turn off, PC wanted to
    install them again as it's turning off.

    Anyway, last time I unstall updates the PC turned off immediately.

    I thought great, but, when I boot up Automatic Installer shows same 3
    updtaes to install.

    A loop situation here. How can I stop it? TIA.

    "hide" it.

    There is a corruption in .NET I think. This is why NERO would not
    install. NERO told me what it was that did not succeed .NET 3.5,
    -something like that.

    This thread is somewhere near, I might find something here:

    I fixed it.

    Basically I removed all .NET with:

    http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Blog_Tools/dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip

    and then reinstalled .NET 3.5.

    and got all the current updates.

    <SNIP>
    Many third-party apps (including heavy hitters like Intuit QuickBooks &
    Oracle) haven't been updated in ages (or people are using outdated versions)
    and therefore weren't compatible with the changes introduced in these recent
    ..NET Framework updates, especially the security-related updates.
