This problem has been occuring for awhile and is preventing my windows XP from being up to date. It's now preventing me from running certain games and applications that require an up to date windows install. In general it's probably not good either ! I can't install the .NET framework updates for SP2. It seems to work, but then when I log back in it always asks me to update the same ones. I'm not sure what's going on or if there is a way to manually install them? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! Thank you!
