KB979909 and KB979906 Updates Fail

    I have tried many times since 6/11 to install the subject updates with no
    success, with the yellow shield reappearing again and again. I keep getting
    the following 'Automatic Updates' message:

    Some updates could not be installed:
    Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 Security Update
    for Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, and Windows XP x86 (KB979909)
    Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1 Security Update for Windows 2000 and
    Windows XP (KB979906)

    (I also found an 'Error Code' 0x643 listed in the 'Installation Failure'
    detail screen.)

    I have seen various recent messages in this discussion group with the same
    or part of the same issues, but listed suggestions (e.g. editing the
    registry, finding, uninstalling and reinstalling previous updates, etc.) are
    much too technical for someone like myself with limited troubleshooting

    Is there an easy fix?

    I am running Windows XP with service pack 3. I have had this computer (Dell
    Dimension 8400) for 5 years, have always installed the updates as soon as the
    yellow shield appears, and have never had a problem until now. If I cannot
    get the updates to install successfully, is there any way to block these
    particular updates from causing the yellow shield to appear?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    I am still having this problem. At this point, I'd just like to permanently
    cancel/block out the attempted 2 updates. Is there a way to do this?

    Thank you!
