I support an SBS 2008 network with 15 XXP3 PCs connected.

All except one are fine. This one keeps having a problem with an update and I couldn't find much on the KB mentioned.

Error msg is:

Microsoft.netframework 2.0 service pack 2 security update for WIndows 2000, Windows Server 2003 and Windows XP KB974417.

Any ideas?

Hello,

I do not think your error is included in our post.

Also, could you provide the WindowsUpdate.log from your %SystemRoot% (normally C:\Windows).

Please provide this info and I might be able to help further.

It seems like there are some errors on the Windows update file downloads.

stop the Automatic Update service on the system.
rename the folder c:\windows\Software distribution to Software Distribution_old.
start the "Automatic Update" service and check for updates.

Let us know.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks I did that and ran updates twice and it found nothing.

Working remotely, so just waiting for someone to shutdown the PC locally to check if problem has been resolved.
