windows keeps trying to install NET 3.5 servive pack 1 and it keeps failing. I keep getting the message 'widows can't check for updates'. This has been going on for some time and it's getting frustrating as I can't download things like itunes. I have seen this problem on other forums but no matter what has been suggested, nothing seems to work. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

have tried these ideas without success. Download manually fails on instalation and windows can't find sfc/scannow. If you have other ways to solve this problem please keep them coming as it's getting me down.
Thanks
