Hi all. windows update keeps downloading .net 3.5 to my computer. It has done this 7 times tonight. I have automatic update turned off and according to installed software it is already on. The yellow sheild keeps flashing to D/L the same thing continuosly. How do I stop this please or is it something more sinister? thanks Jane
Hi peter. It shows succesfully installed but I can see 5 copies of the same file when I go to the add and remove software option in control panel? Tonight I am going to uninstall all of them and manually download the .net update myself. This was suggested to me in an email so I will try it. Interestingly in relation to robinofloxley this did occur after I D/L the lastest Java update and installed it.
If I recall the resolution to these rogue updates which show as installed,but are not actually installed,and therefore keep appearing as wanting to install is to re-download and install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. During the install you should choose the repair rather than install option.
If that does not cure things then the other option is to uninstall and reinstall all .NET Framework components.
Manually downloading the updates is unlikely to resolve matters.
