    Try the following steps, please:

    1.    Go to Program and Features, click it.

    2.    Scroll down to Microsoft.Net Framework 4 Client Profile, right click it.

    3.    It will give you a choice of Uninstall/Change, click it.

    4.    Then, it will give a choice to Repair it, pick Repair   it.  It will take about 4-10 minutes to repair (with my PC) your experience may vary.

    5.    When completed, go to your update center, and update it again.



    if this doesn't fix it, try to remove .Net Framework 4.0 with the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool (http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/08/28/8904493.aspx ), reinstall it and install the Updates.

  • Many thanks for this procedure.  It took several minutes to repair but the security update then installed and allowed a troubling situation to be resolved.  Mike Butler
