    Cannot install Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.1
    Service Pack 1 (KB929729) - I tried downloading direct from Microsoft
    website after it failed many times through the Start Menu. So online,
    when it came to running the installer program I get told that "Windows
    Installer has stopped working", I looked in Services in Administative
    Tools and looked at the Windows Installer settings, but unlike all the
    other services, i was unable to Start, Pause or Restart it..
    Also WMI Provider Host has stopped working, I get this Description of
    the problem -

    Problem Event Name: APPCRASH

    ... when I click on "Check online for a solution (recommended)",
    Windows checks for a solution in the background but this never seems to
    bear fruit as the message is constantly appearing.
    Would greatly appreciate help with this, thanks in advance.
