I am running a Windows XP computer, and like many others, I am having trouble with the installation of certain Net. Framework files using Windows Automatic Updates.

Specifically how can I "tell" the Windows Automatic Updates feature to not list certain Net.Framework files for installation (ones that will not properly install) while Windows Updates continues to function normally with respect to other files? Or to put it another way, is there a way to temporarily list certain files for Windows Updates to ignore, until the problem with those Net. Framework files is fixed?
Thanks.
Richard

go to control panel/windows updates and change the settings to notify me but don't automatically download and install them,click apply, then you can do a custom install whenever you get updates, leaving out the ones you don't want.

Go to add/remove programs in control panel. Tick the box to show windows updates.
Uninstall all the .net framework and then go to windows updates and reinstall all of them. One may be corrupted.
