PC will not update to .NET 2.0

By Donald.Cunningham ·
I have been doing simple Window Updates on my PC and encountered this problem>
The update id's >Net 2.0 as being one of suggested updates; when selected it goes through download; initializes installation; then everything just freezes. I have checked if maybe there is any application I might have added and removed it and still had same problem.

The following is how to recover from the usual MS corrupted updates. Haven't tried it with Net 2.0, so let us know.

Start?Run?Services.msc?Automatic Updates?Properties?click the Stop button?exit msc.
Browse to C:\Windows?SoftwareDistribution. Rename this folder SoftwareDistribution.old. Now go back to Services.msc and restart the Automatic Updates service.

There are also some issues with .NET 1.1, some languages issues and others beta versions. Uninstall all other .NET before installing v2.0

If you don't have iss installed then you don't need the update, just ignore.
