    I have Win XP Home SP3, Windows Live OneCare and Update set on Automatic. It
    worked fine. However recently, every time I reboot Windows, a yellow shield
    icon appears in the notification area saying updates are available. There
    are four updates for MS .NET - KB 982524, KB 982168, KB 979909 and KB
    974417. I installed these updates "successfully" several times,
    nevertheless, they pop up again and again. I disabled the automatic update,
    but my WLOC got red...
    How to get reed of these updates?

    Since support ended back in June 2009 and presuming the maximum term for
    a subscription is 1 year, you are now at the end of your subscription
    for an unsupported product. Uninstall OneCare and move to Microsoft
    Security Essentials.

    When does your OneCare subscription expire?

    Open Add/Remove Programs | Make sure the SHOW UPDATES box at the top is
    checked | Scroll down & tell me which, if any, of the following are listed:
    KB982524, KB982168, KB979909 and KB974417 ??

    PA Bear,

    sure, the KB 979909 and KB 974417 were installed on 6/23/10, but the KB
    982524, KB 982168 were not... My WLOC subscription expires in September and,
    of course, I'll switch to MS Essentials.

    Now, how to install the other two Kb and get rid off of the reminder?

    KB982524 & KB982168 are Optional, non-security updates. Feel free to hide
    them & move on with your life.

    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 & KB982168 and hide them ("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)

    don't simply hide updates.. that just leaves your system vulnerable, always
    try to ge the updates properly installed

    I just run into this problem and I check with microsoft:
    the problem turned out to be a currupted/damaged .net framework component. it
    required to uninstall the whole .net framework and then install it again.

    this is what I was asked to do and what I did:

    to uninstall the whole .net framework I was asked to use this tool
    http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Blog_Tools/dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip

    (*** make sure you select all versions****)

    then I just dowloaded the .net framework with sp1 again from here:
    http://download.microsoft.com/download/2/0/E/20E90413-712F-438C-988E-FDAA79A8AC3D/dotnetfx35.exe


    after that I uninstalled manually the 3 updates I was having problems with
    (KB982524, KB982168 and KB979909), then windows updates took care of the
    remainder updates and I've believe my problem was resolved.

    goodl luck!

    the problem turned out to be a currupted/damaged .net framework component. it
    required to uninstall the whole .net framework and then install it again.

    this is what I was asked to do and what I did:

    to uninstall the whole .net framework I was asked to use this tool
