    @PA Bear,
    That was an AT&T vulnerability, not an Apple vulnerability as originally

    Yeah, people are switching - or simply buying Macs to begin with -
    especially students. I run Hackintosh on all my home PCs for better
    performance than I can get with Windows 7.

    I'm also having the problem described in this thread, and as of Patch
    Tuesday, I now have three patches backed up that won't install on one of my
    servers. Thanks to all who've posted here.

  3. What solution? Without quoting the post you're replying to, who knows what
    your talking about?

    Ok, I am going to post this alternative in hopes that it works for someone
    Download the manual install file from:
    Save the file then shutdown all programs (IM Programs like MSN and Yahoo,
    Outlook, etc) that access the internet. Next turn off ALL internet
    communications and disable the wi-fi.
    Run the downloaded program and it should install without incident.
    Worked for me & I didn't have to reinstall the .NET framework.

    (I hope this solves the problem, I can not begin to say how much all of you
    have helped me in the past, so this is me trying to give a little back)

    Here's what works for me, and how I got there. Note that I'm a mac user, and
    don't have the patience for the long drawn up fixes.

    A long time ago, I ran into a similar problem. An old version of Norton
    Utilities found a several missing files in the .Net installations. I copied
    these files from backups, ran the updaters, and everything seemed to work. I
    also saved a copy of the missing files in case the problem recurred. It did.

    This time around, here's what was missing from my installation:

    In the past, other files that have disappeared include

    After copying these files over, I ran Windows update, and the patch worked
    this time.

    Your results may vary.

    OS - XP Home. I tried the "lazy" solution..worked like a charm. I'd say try
    this before going the whole hog on .Net ..cheers!

    I'm using XP Pro SP3. I've got the same KB979906 won't install problem.
    I've downloaded a copy of the .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 file, dotnetfx.exe.
    If I uninstall .NET Framework 1.1 using the Add or Remove Programs function
    in Control Panel, and then run this dotnetfx.exe file, is that what you are
    describing you have done that worked?
    Thanks for your help.
