Low tech person found solution for his recurring Windows Update for Microsoft[QUOTE]\nNET Framework 1.1 SP1 Security Update for Windows 2000 and Windows XP[/QUOTE]\n(KB979906).\n\nI read earlier to uninstall NET 1.1 from Add/Unistall.\n1) I did that.\n2) I downloaded and re-installed NET 1.1.\n3) I downloaded and installed NET 1.1 SP1.\n4) I downloaded and installed KB979906.\n\nI did all this through Microsoft Update. (It seems the installs through\nWindows Automatic Update wouldn't work.) Also,\n\n5) After KB979906 was installed, I found about ten minutes later that\nngen.exe starting working. I waited for it to stop working after several\nminutes. After all was quiet on the hard drive, then I re-booted. AND, so\nfar, no recurring update for KB979906.\n\nFor me, this is success. I hope what I learned from someone earlier here can\nhelp another simple person trying to keep their PC running.\n\nIf this didn't work for you, then I am sorry. These problems are so\nfrustrating, especially when you are trying to get work done.
