Windows 7 Update error 80070308

I am working on a Vizio CT14/CT15 laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.  I am having major frustration over Windows update error 80070308 and have tried all the suggested Microsoft troubleshooting methods except removing all the .NET Framework installed updates and removing SP1 which I can't locate in the installed updates.

I've worked on this issue for two days now.  Any assistance is extremely appreciated.

Try the Windows Update Readiness tool

http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=20858  for x64

Try the general Windows Update troubleshooter site

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971058

Try the .NETFX Verifier tool

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/10/13/8999004.aspx

This will test up to .NET Framework V4.5.2 and make fixes if it can.,

Hi John,

Since I had tried the Readiness Tool and Update troubleshooter, I ran the .NETFX Verifier tool and have attached a .jpg of the output report.

here they say : Solution – Open Regedit & browse to HKLM\COMPONENTS. Delete the PendingRequired value.

The .NET Framework Repair Tool output you showed us say .NET Framework is not working and it cannot fix it.

Uninstall any .NET Framework installs from Control Panel, Programs and Features.
Now go back to Control Panel, Programs and Features, Windows Features (on the left) and UNCHECK (remove) .NET Framework 3.5.

Close out, shut down, start up, go back to Windows Features and CHECK (enable) .NET Framework. Close out, restart if it says, and otherwise run Windows Update and do all updates. Be sure you do Recommended updates.

THANK YOU SO MUCH*!*!*!  I can't say this enough.  Your suggestions worked magic*!*!  No more headaches over this.

It still took three hours to get all the Windows 7 including the .NET updates back onto the system, but at least it all came to a positive end result.

Many thanks!
