Security Update for Framework 1.1 SP1 won't install
Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 on Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows Server 2008 x86 (KB2656370) can't be installed on my Clevo (Mesh) D480W. Windows automatic updates keep proposing it but keeps failing since yesterday morning.

Thanks for help.

Go to Control Panel - Add Or Remove Programs.

Make sure that "Show Updates" is NOT checked, and make sure that "Sort - By Name" is selected.

What versions of Microsoft .NET Framework are in the list?

Hello, thanks for your advice, but I haven't checked this yet, which list are you refering to?

I'm just trying to confirm which version(s) of Microsoft .NET Framework your computer currently has installed.

Your computer is running Windows XP, so it's possible that some or all of these versions are installed:

1.1 SP1

2.0 SP2

3.0 SP2

3.5 SP1

4.0

It appears that you don't have versions 3.5 SP1 or 4.0 installed.

There's no need to install either of them, unless you install or update a program/suite that requires one of them.

If you do require one of them, you'll be alerted to install it.

Version 1.1 SP1 is several years old, so it's unlikely that the security update for it is needed.

My advice is to uncheck that security update, then select not to show it again.

Do NOT uninstall/remove 1.1 SP1 or the other 2 versions.

I too have the same problem. But in my case I do have 3.5 SP1 and 4 installed. I still can't get the update to work.

Do what I advised fv104. Uncheck it and then select not to show it again.

I don't know if this will be of any help or just confuse things further, but here is what happened when I attempted to install that same update.

My Comodo firewall (free version) popped up a notice the program was not recognized and isolated it. From there it would not install and opened the"Notify Microsoft" dialog.

I clicked the "do not isolate again" option and launched the installer again. All went just fine and the software installed normally.

BTW.. Another variable is I have Windows Update set to notify me when updates are available, then download them from the Windows Update Catalog site, then install them after that.
Following is my system info:

Hello,

thanks for all the advices.

I've had the idea to reinstall framework1.1sp1 just in case it's been corrupted or accidentally deleted, using following link: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downl...ils.aspx?id=33

Unfortunately the download didn't work cause netfx.msi installation package cannot be found on my computer (error 1706). Any chance to find a a path to recover that one?
