According to my update history at Microsoft Home, I have now downloaded and installed the 3 latest Net Framework security updates 3 times and each time I closedown my computer it trys to install them again!! However when I look at Control Panel - Add or Remove Programms, I cannot find the latest updates in the list?
Can anyone enlighten me as to why they appear not to have been installed?
I have gone through the uninstall/reinstall all .NET Framework releases on a previous occassion when this same scenario happened some time ago and it is a very time consuming exercise (1 to 2 hours) so not to be dived into lightly.
It would also appear that these are NOT new updates. Googling for them highlights people having similar problems back in March 2012 for the same KB numbers,although they do not appear in my update history in March.
While I wait for MS to sort this out I have opted just to hide them by choosing custom update,expanding the update details, and ticking the box marked "do not show this update again" - especially as my update history does say that they have already been successfully installed.
Had similar issues, with Windows Update doing a whole series of them, together, on auto. My system crashed, and I had to restore back to prior to the updates.
I went into W/U, check for updates, and then de-selected them all. Then installed them manually, one at a time, re-booting after each. I did that, mainly, to try to indentify which was "an issue", but all went through, fine, like that, and touch wood, all now seems OK.
