Have a Widows XP Pro desktop automatically getting updates from Server. Unable to install KB2633870. Associated Update KB2600217 installs ok. I have 50 other desktops and laptops where the update installed no problem. Tried repair of .net Framework 4. Tried Uninstalling and reinstalling .net Framework 4. Still no go. I don't want to reinstall Windows but I am prepared to do it as last resort.

1) See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2633870   for info on this update...

2) Try manually downloading this file at the URL above and try a manual install

3) Is there an error code associated with the failure?  Exactly HOW is it failing?

4) See: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/976982 for 2 methods to attempt repair, Method 1 is a downloadable "FIXIT" , method 2 is a manual repair procedure...

Trying the manual install. Will advise.
FYI-- no error codes. Message says installation completed successfully (???)

Manual Install did not work. Same symptoms- Message indicating successful install.
Will proceed with Step 4.

Ran the fixit and tried a repair (for the 3rd time). Ran Windows Update and the Update again appeared to install but is not installed. Very Weird.
