    I've had consistent problems installing KB2656351. I got no error messages doing the update, but it kept reappearing in my list of WU. Finally, after running repair, Fixit, etc., Windows showed the KB2656351 update to both the .NET framework 4 Client Profile and .NET framework 4 Extended successfully installed on March 8, 2013, and both appear in the Windows Update list Update History and also in the list of Installed Updates, as well as in Control Panel. The update continued to appear for download/installation, however, and I finally hid it. Belarc indicates the KB2656351 has not been installed, and lists the update as Critical rather than Important (as WU does).

    Is this update actually installed, or do I need to take further action?

    Thank you for any help with this conflicting information!

    Thank you for your reply! You mention "uninstall any .net 4 components"; I'm guessing this is done in the normal way via Contorl Panel Uninstall, right? Should I attempt Repair before uninstalling? I have seen the Net Framework Cleanup Tool User's Guide at the link you supplied, and I admit to finding the caveats pretty intimidating. Perhaps I need to spend more time on the site, but so far I haven't found anything on reinstalling the offending .Net Framework 4. Is this simply done through Windows Update? Thanks for contending with my very basic questions!
