    Default XP Update Install Failures

    After manually downloading and installing .net Framework Ver.2 all subsequent updates (4) fail to install. Should I install .net Framework Ver.3 and see what happens or must everything be done in a particular sequence. Ideas anyone?

    things tend to need to be done in a sequence, as some things rely on other things. its normally best to install windows, install all updates (you can use .net framework 2 or 3 they both work fine) and then install all drivers, followed by your programs that aren't included in windows. I think Microsoft says something else, but this order works for me and i have reformatted on many occasions.

    Yes. I have proceded exactly as you reccomended. Yet the auto downloaded security updates just refuse to install. One is for .net Framework 2, two are Runtime related and the other is a generic unspecified security update. I disabled all anti virus/malware programs, still they fail to install. I will contact Windows support and see what they have to say. Thanks.

    Running XP, erm..

    I suggest checking here first - Linky!!!

    Follow there guidelines and find out what error code you get for each failed update.

    With error codes we can better understand what is going on my friend.

    I've been in situations where updates have failed on Vista all because the clock was wrong and a bad installation of Windows due to overclocking.

    My rule of thumb is if your into overclocking your computer default it when reinstalling Windows and Update Windows with the most current updates for all your hardware.

    If all else fails hit it with a hammer

    Tried downloading and installing manually but still fail to install.

    Followed the suggested link to my update history list and the failures do not appear so I am unable to provide fault codes.

    Contacted MS Support. Expect a response in a day or two and will pass along what they say.

    I had a similar issue with Service Pack 1 for Vista it turned out to be because of the overclock / bad installation of Windows.

    Defaulted / Reinstalled - everything tip top shape.

    But I would only recommend this as a last resort, do await the response from Microsoft see how it pans out.

    Yes, I resorted to bios defaults, no overclocks, prior to installing anything.

    I know this sounds daft but try your SATA cables or IDE cables depending on your hard-drive technology.

    Most people over look this like pinncle problem thinking "Ah cables wont be effected they are INDESTRUCTIBLE" - but there wrong from time to time they degrade over use / heat / wear and tear.

    a cable wont stop net framework installing, it would stop windows booting in the first place.

    I'm affraid your wrong Yblad, I've mangaged to install Windows but have sparadic effects happen to my computer changing cables did the trick.

    Its a viable reason its tricky to explain, it doesnt nessarily have to be a broke line in side the cable more of a degraded line or loosened terminal near the edges, these can all attribute to sparadic errors / installation problems.

    From Microsoft:

    After checking the WindowsUpdate.log file attached, I found that the error code 0x80004002 occurred during the Windows Update process.

    This error is most likely caused by one of the following conditions:
    1. Update Agent 3.0 is not installed properly.
    2. Some DLL files are corrupted.
    3. Installer 3.1 is corrupted.
    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    I'll keep you informed. Thanks for your interest and constructive suggestions.

    You know what you really should do...

    To fix broken or missing system files...

    Go to:

    Start > run > type in "sfc /scannow" and hit enter.

    This will replace and repair any missing or corrupted system files. I use this trick all the time, because I mess around with the system files n dll's quite a bit.

    Try it. It won't hurt anything. And I'm almost sure it'll work for ya

    Sporadic errors, not a continuous error on a specific program. Iíve never heard of any problem with a cable just effecting one program
