Windows Updates available as it's 'Patch Tuesday'. I had problems with the .net framework update keep trying to installed over & over so in the end I hid it for now at least.

got same problem on xp on 2nd attempt now, it stalled half way though install this time, first time just said fail at the end.

if it stalls leave alone surf the web or get a coffee after about 10mins the dodgy framework update installs [needs reboot too]

Yesterday I had 11 updates on 2 PC's (W7 64 bit). Took longer than usual, especially the .NET framework 4 one. A Silverlight update failed on both PC's. I was refered to the Silvelight site and installed version 5 - but have never really understood why I need Silverlight at all! Never mind I lige to keep up to date!

Yes same result, Silverlight security update failed on all 3 of my W7 computers. Found later that a newer version 0f Silverlight exits v5 and updated it. Netframework 4 failed on 1 and still trying to sort.

Silverlight is a browser plugin to enable some interactive media applications. It is powered by the .Net framework. I have found little use for it. Silverlight initally failed on my systems but later when I ran Windows update it reported that I was up to date. Network 4 can take a while and problems with this could be linked to Silverlight and vice versa.
