unable to repair/update Microsoft .NET Framework 4
Hi,

Recently i discovered a series of numbered folders on my C drive. I've concluded that they are from failed attempts at installing the updates for Microsoft .NET Framework 4. I've tried running the microsoft fixit program... i've also gone to the control panel and tried to repair the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 program but received the following "fatal error during installation" report, that it could not be fixed. How do i fix Microsoft .NET Framework 4? I'm not very computer savvy when it comes to this sort of technical stuff...i've read something about having to uninstall all versions of Microsoft .NET Framework which apparently is a tedious process that I'd like to avoid if at all possible. Also my computer won't let me delete the random numbered folders its creating on my hard drive even though I'm the only administrator on this computer and i actually have all my user controls turned off at the moment. thanks in advance....

How did the problem start and how did you discover that Framework 4 had a problem?

Have you deleted anything manually that may have damaged it? Have you used any registry cleaners or system optimizers that damaged the system?

Have you tried uninstalling it? System Restore?

Q. How did the problem start and how did you discover that Framework 4 had a problem?
A. Recently i discovered a series of numbered folders on my C drive. inside the folders were microsoft.net graphics along with a bunch of numbered folders. after googling i found that they were most likely microsoft.net framework 4 failed installations because it makes a new one just about every day.

Q. Have you deleted anything manually that may have damaged it?
A. not that i know of

Q. Have you used any registry cleaners or system optimizers that damaged the system?
A. I have used CC cleaner and an AVG cleaner, but i'm pretty sure the problems existed before that.

Q. Have you tried uninstalling it?
A. No because i wanted to find if there were other solutions first which is why i'm posting here. I did try to repair it through the control panel.

Q. System Restore?
A. No

the original was closed because it expired. I've reopened; in the future, instead of opening a duplicate thread, either report that you'd like the original reopened, or just type 'bump' in the quick reply box within 45 days.

Thanks,

I do not know if late or I could be of assistance but here goes my two cents. That error you said you received is normally MSI software corrupted or .NET installation has become corrupted. Have you tried repairing it in the control panel? As in going to uninstall in the control panel and double click on Microsoft .net framework 4 client profile and select repair on it? Then after that restarting your computer and firing up windows update again? Let me know.
