Long time issue with Win updates KB2538242 KB2487367 KB2656351


  • Having issues with 2 Net Framework and MS Visual C++ updates. 

    Have tried all fixes.  None of the mentioned will un-install.   Can't fix, remove, or update them.   When running windows update and choosing the 3 critical updates to install, I get 2 failures and one success.  However the next time I run update, all three are reported as needed critical updates ... I've been working on this for a few months now on and off. 

    I'm running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.  All other updates and the rest of the system works fine.

    I've also tried a few 3rd party fixes as well as some MS recommended utilities.  In every case I get a report that the repair or fix failed. 

    First time here and am not sure this is the right forum.   Please advise.  Thanks .. Rich
