One of the solutions here definitely works, there appears to be 2 or 3 different solutions.

Basically, you need to remove all Net Framework entries from Add/Remove Programs, download NF1.1, and the NF1.1 patch, install and keep the installation files until you have attempted the MS update again and completed it successfully. It seems to require the presence of one of the .msi files from the aforementioned products, they have usually been deleted on most user's PCs since those files and updates aren't recent.

You could try here

Uninstall all versions of NetFramework from Add and remove programs.

Download and install Version 2.0 click here

Then leave the MS updates to download and install (if you have MS configured to auto update

),hopefully this will cure your problem.

You need the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility; click here

brundle i have down loaded the windows installer Cleanup Utility,

in the control panel when i try to remove the sais horror, it's saying 1

This action is only valid for products that are currently installed, ?

Them under neath its got hotfix tried to remove this but again i get .

The upgrade patch cannot be installed by windows installer service because the program to be upgraded maybe missing or the upgrade patch may update a different version of the program, verify that the program to be upgraded exists on your computer and that you have the correct upgrade patch. any idea's where i go now,

You need to find the MS Installer Cleanup entry in your Start menu and remove the NetFramework entries. It works independently of Windows' Add/Remove Programs. The error message refers to my first post, the installation files for those applications are missing. NF is up to version 3 now, you really only need to install 2.0 to enable older applications that require 1.1 to work. If any app needs version 3, it includes version 2. I did a fresh install of XP recently, and only installed Net Framework 2.0, then 3.0 when I needed to use an application that required version 3.
