    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.

    The source for the uninstaller.

    end edit

    Reboot.

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


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