I have the identical problem on two networked machines. Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 2.0 (KB917283) fails to instal on either of them. Both XP SP2 with all previous updates.

It's just failed for me as well - on a PC and a laptop.

I also can't find any reference to this KB at the Microsoft site.

I'm now left with the annoying yellow shield in my task bar (you have updates waiting to be installed), but in spite of trying to install it several times on both the PC and the laptop, it fails every time.

Is this an MS cock up, I wonder??

Failed for me as well .I try to download it tomorrow.

Downloading is not the issue.

It's already downloaded and sitting on your machine.

It's installation that's the problem. It may be that this is a 'dud' update issued by Microsoft. If it is, they will correct it in due course.
