WSUS Client failing on all .net security updates


  • Hello,

    I am currently having an issue with multiple users having failed updates, just a few of them have 1-3 failures, not a big deal. However, there is one user in particular that has 11 updates failing every time and they are all .net security updates, they range from 1.1, 2.0, and 3.0. I have tried going to the KB articles on MSDN and following the steps as well as the 'Fix it now' tool(s). Nothing has worked thus far, I have even tried to all the stesp in this link 

    I don't know what else to do other than replace the computer and start over, though, that is like admitting defeat. I really dont want to do that unless there is no other option. Can anyone explain why its only .net security definitions? Is there some other .net update that is required before he can download the rest of these?

    Anyways, here is his comp specs:

    Windows XP Pro SP3 Version 5.1 Kernel 2600.  I dont think you need the hardware but if you do just say so.

    Thank you
