    I also have the same issue. Hope to have a call back from Microsoft Windows
    XP tech support tomarrow with some kind of answer. According to the Article
    ID: KB917283, This update is NOT listed for Windows XP Home Edition SP2. This
    is why it has downloaded and waiting to install and can not. Calling
    Microsoft at 1-800-936-5700 on an issue of security updates is free and maybe
    they will take notice that this an issue with others.

    I am having the same problem as listed in this thread so I downloaded the
    cleanup tool and ran it. The tool seemed to stall with status removing
    registry entries. I left it for several minutes to see if it would finish but
    no further change was evident. The exit button remoained greyed out so I
    ended the application from task manager. Interestingly there was no popup
    from task manager about ending an app prematurely. I rebooted my pc as per
    the instructions then ran windows update again this time it came back with no
    updates found. I went into add/remove progs in control panel and found .NET 2
    still there so removed it from there. A warning came up that .NET 2 appeared
    to be already uninstalled and did I want to remove it from the program list
    to which I said yes. So I rebooted again and ran windows update again, still
    no updates found. Checking the update history shows KB917283 as still failed
    at last attempt and .NET 2 still does not appear in the update list for
    reinstallation. I am concerned as I know something is amiss here but Windows
    seems to think everything is ok now.

  3. You can download the .NET 2.0 distribution from MS Download
    Center. Here is the link:

    I notice now that Messenger Live no longer works. When I ran the install
    executable it said files were missing and offered to repair the installation.
    I did this and Messenger is working again.

    It occurs to me that this app was still running when I ran the cleanup tool,
    could it have been the cause of the cleanup tool stalling if it was holding
    resources the tool was trying to release? Wouldnt the tool normally warn you
    if this was the case rather than just stalling?

  5. Not sure. I'm having problems with the update as well. It
    keeps failing to install from WU site. I tried downloading the update
    from the MS Download Center, and installing it manually, but it says
    "The installation source for this product is not available. Verify
    that the source exist, and you can access it."
    I tried using the cleanup tool to remove all the .NET vesions,
    and reinstall them all again, but the .NET 2.0 update refuses to
    install. All the other .NET versions, and updates install fine.

    Do NOT use the cleanup tool without very careful consideration. It completely
    uninstalls .NET which is very unwise. If you have other items installed on
    top of .NET 2.0, like the poorly named .NET 3.0 add-ons then you are going to
    be dealing with a seriously borked machine after this tool is run.

    This is a hotfix problem not a framework problem. The hotfix isn't even
    critical and there are other ways to protect yourself.

    You are right. This important note is missing.

    Here's what happened. Created a restore point, Used the cleaner, Windows
    Live OneCare immediately Crashed completely and wouldn't start at all, went
    to MS Update and checked for updates and it didn't find that I needed .Net
    Framework 2.0. Then restored the system and although it stated it
    succeeded - it failed because OneCare was still completely crashed, Norton
    Ghost would not start, Lost my LAN completely, tried to uninstall OneCare
    and reinstall and it would not uninstall with Add & Remove Programs so I
    used an uninstall tool from the Perpetual Beta site and uninstalled it,
    Tried to reinstall and it failed with errors. That was last night. Today,
    Booted Ghost and restored complete system image to yesterday before MS
    updates. All is well except The KB917283 update still states that it
    installs successfully and I can check MS update and it still states that I
    need it.

    You are absolutely correct. Just finished a complete system image retore
    because of the cleanuptool.

    Will try that next. But had seen other posts that repairing .Net didn't
    work and supposedly cleaning it did.

    By the way repairing .Net Framework didn't work either.

  13. Yes, if you uninstall .NET 2.0, then all applications dependent on it will
    fail. Perhaps this needs to be added as a Health Warning to the procedure.

    Since OneCare is a startup item, its failure will mess up quite a bit of the
    system. I'm sorry to hear you've had such a rough time.

    Perhaps a few day's more lurking here will uncover another remedy.

    I had the same problem here at work and home (later). The repitition of this
    same 2.0 update, download, and install, with failures.

    Although my user name has "Administrative priviledges", I cannot normally
    install or update programs that require a true "Administrator" being logged
    in, such as Office or Visual Studio Express....

    I made a hunch that this was a similar case. Checking the event log
    (applications)showed a dreaded 2203 error for the msinstaller. That was my
    clue that the actual "Administrator" had to install the 2.0 update.

    I logged off of my user name, and logged in as the "Administrator", allowed
    the update to download again, and it started to install. After about 8
    minutes of disk activity the update completed succesfully.

    It's worth a try ! At least it doesn't involve reinstallations.

    No problem on the crash....(It was interesting) Thanks for the reply and I
    too hope someone can remedy the issue soon. I did later (after the restore)
    try to repair .Net 2.0 and it didn't work.

    I had the same problem with KB 917283 - tried repairing V2.0 - no good. I
    ended up uninstalling V2.0, rebooted and then installed V2.0 from the MS web
    site.Downloaded the update and this time it installed.
    Casper, Jul 15, 2006
  17. I tred this as well as the uninstall of .NET 2.0, and
    reinstall, but the update still refuses.

    This is the solution that worked for me:
    -Control Panel
    -Add/Remove Programs
    -Select NET Framework 2.0
    -Select REPAIR
    -Apply update
    VIOLA - good to go.
