      Enabling automatic updates will notify a user for any recommended fix, patches for your system. Same with your Antivirus. Post the complete error or messages for us to understand what are some updates but not all. You could also manually download MSI from the Microsoft  download sites.

          Post the complete error or messages for us to understand what are some updates but not all. You could also manually download MSI from the Microsoft  download sites.
          When updates failed such as for MSI 4.0 a complete detail(name of the file) is posted along with the error code. Had this one recently on windows update prompting/notified to install net framework 4(3 files) or KB 2468871 which also failed. Type the KB code on Google search and a Microsoft link for the particular file will be given. Typing KB 2468871 will give you http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2468871
          Then just download the installer and manually install it. If there are still problems along the manual install, look for the exact detail error. If you have 1 or 5 files that failed to update, look for the names and KB code. List them and try looking for a manual installation instead. Regarding your AVG antivirus, its either you need to reinstall it and see if next scheduled update will be corrected.

            Unspecified error installing netframe. I wasnt sure which edition, as i'm running vista 32 bit. i tried the NDP40-KB2468871-v2-x86.exe and dotnetFX40 Full x86 x64 files, but got the unspec error.BUT you are right, i did see a net frame error b4 too! On the windows update, i didn't get the KB errors, i got  code 641 and code 80070050. Thx

            Skip all x64 bit software package download choices and choose the last one x86(e.g. NDP40-KB2533523-x86.exe - http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=27014)
            Check your installed updates and post all files under Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile.
            1. Click Start
            2. On Search Program and Files search box, type - View Installed Updates - Enter
            3. Post all KB code and corresponding file details installed.

                From Reply#9 - Those errors or failed to install updates are the very same files/kb codes I was having problem with. However, if you choose the link from More information, it will directly give you the manual download by choosing Download Reliability Update 1 for the Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Now.
                Then choose this -> NDP40-KB2533523-x86.exe
                After download is complete, install the package and if you are required to reboot, let it do so. Have you tried the Manual installation instead going for the Windows Update? Do this again for the remaining .NET Framework installers. This is how I actually was able to install all 3 files.
                Your Reply#10 - Where is that error from? From the Windows update?

                  That error is from trying to install NDP40-KB2533523-x86.exe. It downloaded fine, but couldn't install. Widows Installer Service could not be accessed.  Am I missing something? Sorry n THANKS
