How to undo a suspended windows update

I recently tried to do Windows updates and the sytem locked up on me. I had to manually restart it, everything came back up fine.
I am now trying to install the XOsoft engine on this server, and the remote installer is giving me the following error.
"An installation for Microsoft.NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 is currently suspended. You must undo the changes made by that installation to continue."
How can I undo this suspended install?

kk glad you solved this out. It probably kept restarting because you have the service to autorestart on failures. Try double clicking on it in your services console (services.msc) and check that out. You might want to disable the restart feature or leave it.

Retrying to install the framework SP1 should detect that installation didn't finish and repair it.

I've tried, the update installer stops responding. I've done this twice, maybe I should remove .NET 1.1 and 2.0, and try them all again from the start...
The problem is that this is occuring on our Exchange Server, which as you know complicates things greatly.

Don't try from windows update simply download the redistributable for DotNet Framework 2.0 SP1 and try from there.

Well it looks like IIS was the cause, while it was running I could not perform any .NET updates. It kept trying to stop it, and some other service would keep restarting  it (Don't know which one). This conflict caused the update to hang time after time.
I had to stop the Service, and uninstall 2.0 to get rid of the suspended update.
