    For the last two days the computer has been trying to add a new update
    "Mircosoft .NET Framwork 1.1 SP1" on my computer. Currently I have SP3
    loaded and working with Windows XP professional. It fails on the download,
    fails on a install from re-start and fails from a direct internet install
    ERROR Ox643. What solutions do you have?

  3. You mean "Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 SP1" I assume. ;-) Are you sure on
    what is being installed? Is there an associated KB###### to go with the
    title of what is being attempted?

    This is not exactly *new* - it has been out there for several years
    (8/30/2004) - so the first question I have is whether your Windows XP
    Professional (32-bit) with Service Pack 3 system was recently rebuilt from
    scratch (clean install)?

    If you use the second web link above to download and *save* the service pack
    and then you follow these instructions:

    This may seem like overkill - but you may have other underlying problems.
    If you do all of the following - a few things should be more certain than
    they were before you started... Like you are unlikely to have any
    major/known malware on your system, your Windows Update components will be
    the latest versions and working properly, your hard disk drive should be
    free of unknown problems and organized for best performance and describing
    your issue should become easier - if it even still exists after all this.

    Every time you are about to click on something while
    at these web pages - first press and hold down the
    CTRL key while you click on it. You can release the
    CTRL key after clicking each time.

    Once the scan is done, select just _ONE_ of the high
    priority updates (deselect any others) and install it.

    Reboot and logon as administrative user.

    If it did work - try the web page again - selecting no
    more than 3-5 at a time. Rebooting as needed.

    The Optional Software updates are generally safe
    - although I recommend against the
    "Windows Search" one and any of the "Office Live"
    ones or "Windows Live" ones for now. I would
    completely avoid the Optional Hardware updates.
    Also - I do not see any urgent need to install
    Internet Explorer 8 at this time.

    Come back - let us know.
