    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family
    Update (KB951847) x86

    I have continuously tried installing this update for the last 4 months, and
    cannot install it. It downloads, but will never progress/complete when
    installing wether I do it while running windows or while shutting
    down/restarting. I can't stop receiving the windows updater alert for it
    unless I set to never check, which I prefer not to do.

    Any help with this is appreciated. Thank you.

  2. Step #1 => Before doing anything else, write down what .NET Framework
    versions are currently installed:

    How to determine which versions of the .NET Framework are installed and
    whether service packs have been applied

    Step #2 => Now see Resolution Method 2 in this related KB article:

    After running the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool (not the Windows Installer
    Cleanup utility), reinstall all .NET Framework versions (but only the ones
    you wrote down in #1 above) manually using the download links on the page
    then run Windows Update manually to install security updates for same.

    NB: If you remove .NET Framework 3.5 (SP1) using the tool, reinstalling .NET
    Framework 3.5 will also install .Net Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2; then
    Windows Update will offer .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

    IMPORTANT! => If you remove .NET Framework 3.5 (SP1), reinstall your .NET
    Framework versions in the following order:

    1. .Net Framework 3.5, then...
    2. .Net Framework 1.1, then...
    3. .Net Framework 1.1 SP1

    NB: KB923100 references this page: Please read
    ALL of it as well as the related page before using the .NET
    Framework Cleanup Tool.

    Step #3 => Check-in at Windows Update and install any critical security
    updates offered.
