How to fix .NET errors in Windows

How to fix .NET errors (installing update) in Windows:


1. Download .NET clean up utility : http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/attachment/8904493.ashx

2. Remove the specific .NET version that won't install in Windows Update. DO NOT REMOVE ALL VERSION.

3. Reboot

4. Most of the time, .NET 1.1 and 3.5 are common versions that fails to install. After reboot, download and install the .NET installers:

Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1
