    Opening a new thread as suggested by PA Bear.

    OS: Windows XP Pro SP3 running IE8 but Chrome for anything useful.
    Part on an office network with an SBS2003 domain server.

    The above updates won't install and fail with error 0x80070643. I have read
    KB976982 and followed its procedure to remove all .NET versions and replace
    them in the order 3.5SP1, 1.1, 1.1SP1 followed by Windows update. This has
    not resolved the problem and the updates sit in my systray, waiting..

    I am also running AVG Free and take the view that any AV is better than
    none. Is there any suggestion that AV is preventing this update?

    You receive error code 0x80070643 or error code 0x643 when you use the
    Windows Update or Microsoft Update Web sites to install updates

    Yes, that's right but its much easier to type 0x80070643 or 0x643 than

    'Product: Microsoft Fix it 50123 -- Error 1720. There is a problem with this
    Windows Installer package. A script required for this install to complete
    could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Custom
    action RUN_32_PARSEARG script error -2146827859, Microsoft VBScript runtime
    error: ActiveX component can't create object: 'Scripting.FileSystemObject'
    Line 22, Column 14'

    which is the entry for the MsiInstaller log entry in Application events.

    Does that help the diagnosis?

    => OPTION A: For home users, no-charge support is available by calling
    1-866-PCSAFETY (1-866-727-2338; and/or 1-866-234-6020 and/or 1-800-936-5700)
    in the United States and in Canada or by contacting your local Microsoft
    subsidiary. There is no-charge for support calls that are associated with
    security updates. When you call, clearly state that your problem is related
    to a Security Update and cite the update's KB number (e.g., KB979906).

    Or you can...

    Start a free Windows Update support incident email request:
    https://support.microsoft.com/oas/default.aspx?gprid=6527

    Customers who experience issues installing Microsoft security updates also
    can visit the following page for assistance:
    https://consumersecuritysupport.microsoft.com/

    => OPTION B: First run the Fix It in this KB article & see if the update
    will install after doing so:

    How to fix MSI software update registration corruption issues
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971187

    If no joy, see...

    When installing updates using Windows update or Microsoft Update you may
    receive Error 0x643 or 0x80070643
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976982

    Then proceed per the following:

    =====================

    Step #1 => Before doing anything else, write down what .NET Framework
    versions are currently installed:

    How to determine which versions of the .NET Framework are installed and
    whether service packs have been applied
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318785

    [As of this post, KB318785 hasn't been revised since November 2008 so you
    may not find the pertinent information in it. YMMV]

    Step #2 => Now see Resolution Method 2 in this related KB article:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923100

    After running the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool (not the Windows Installer
    Cleanup utility!), reinstall all .NET Framework versions (but only the ones
    you wrote down in #1 above) manually using the download links on the page
    then run Windows Update manually to install security updates for same.

    Download links for .NET Framework Cleanup Tool:

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

    •
    http://blogs.msdn.com/cfs-file.ashx...-90-44-93/dotnetfx_5F00_cleanup_5F00_tool.zip

    NB: If you remove .NET Framework 3.5 (SP1) using the tool, reinstalling .NET
    Framework 3.5 will also install .Net Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2; then
    Windows Update will offer .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

    IMPORTANT! => If you remove .NET Framework 3.5 (SP1), reinstall your .NET
    Framework versions in the following order:

    1. .Net Framework 3.5, then...
    2. .Net Framework 1.1, then...
    3. .Net Framework 1.1 SP1

    NB: KB923100 references this page:
    http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/05/30/611355.aspx. Please read
    ALL of it as well as the related page
    http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/pages/8904493.aspx before using the .NET
    Framework Cleanup Tool.

    Step #3 => Check-in at Windows Update and install any critical security
    updates offered.
