    Hi there,

    I have a Sony VAIO laptop with Vista Home Premium, and I cannot, for the life of me, get this update to install. The update is the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.5 SP1, Windows Vista SP2, and Windows Server 2008 SP2 Update for x64-based Systems (KB982536).

    This has been an ongoing issue for quite some time now, and even despite extensive emails with Microsoft's tech support, I can't seem to get the problem resolved. Previous and similar updates download and install automatically without any issue whatsoever, but this update continues to fail with error code 800B0100.

    I have tried disabling and enabling firewalls, antivirus software, all that sort of thing; even downloading the update and trying to manually install it didn't help. Perhaps someone can help me out.
