    Hi all,
    I have around 800 PCs, mostly XP. There is WSUS 3 SP1 in place, with
    auto-approve rules for most updates.
    It is working well, updates are being installed over night.
    Lately I got a lot of reports from users, that they are being bothered by
    messages about updates.
    After a bit of digging I found out about update KB928416, Microsoft .NET
    Framework 3.0: language pack for x86 CPUs. It tries to install continously,
    even if its for older version of NET.
    When trying to install manually, I'm getting:
    Installer detected newer version of this application. Use add/Remove
    programs to repair or remove application.
    I tried to remove NET manually on one affected PC, however it won't
    uninstall, saying something about being needed by other applications.

    So far I have 71 PCs with this symptoms, any idea how to fix this? Manual
    install/remove is not really an option, I have many users on remote sites.

    Any feedback appreciated.

    Why distribute a package that isn't needed and is causing problems?
