    I get the same message.Some show as 0 in size.
    Mark them to not show again i think it's called.
    It becomes hidden anyway.

    Remove from History

    Go to your Windows Update website and remove it from your History list and then try it again.

    Remove the .NET and install .NET 2.0 to fix the problem, This can be done manually
