Are there unsuccessful instances of these updates.

I read a thread, within the past week, about .NET update problems.
It might be helpful to you. Various potentially successful methods are described.

Another option.
Download the .net 4 framework standalone installation program.

Uninstall all .net framework references in "programs & features.. I don't know if a special uninstaller / remover is available.

edit


reboot

run the clean up "as admiinistrator"
reboot

Here's the cleanup tool.

Reboot.

Run the .net 4 framework; right click; left click "run as administrator"


reboot when the install has finished
run w7's update manually
