    Hi,

    I've been getting an unusual thing happening when using auto updates. I
    get the little icon and am told I have Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
    and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Update for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP
    x86 (KB982524) waiting to be installed. I click on install and it runs
    through and says install completed, and I then restart the PC. On boot
    up I have the little icon for updates again and find the update waiting
    is Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Update
    for Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP x86 (KB982524). On going to the
    update history I find that it says that it has been installed 3 times
    yet it still keeps telling me it needs to be installed.

    any ideas?

    Gerald

    KB982524 is an Optional, non-security update: Feel free to hide it.

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

    1. Stop the Automatic Updates service:

    Start > Run > (type in) services.msc > [OK]
    Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Stop
    (Stopping the service will take a moment)

    2. Delete the contents of the Download folder:

    Start > Run > (type in) %windir%\SoftwareDistribution > [OK]
    Open the Download folder and delete its contents
    Close the window.

    3. Go to Windows Update website | Select CUSTOM and allow the scan to
    complete | Uncheck/deselect KB982524 and hide it ("Don't show me this update
    again").

    4. Start the Automatic Updates service:

    Start > Run > (type in) services.msc > [OK]
    Double-click Automatic Updates > Click on Start
    (Starting the service will take a moment)

    Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
    Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) as well as your current IE
    version (e.g., IE6, IE7, IE8) in your first post.
