Windows 7 repeatedly updates KB2468871 and KB2533523

by alanglasscock / October 30, 2011 12:20 AM PDT

Since Sept 17, 2011, each time I shut down I get the message that these updates are being installed. When I checked my up date history these two updates were successfully installed each time. How can I remedy this

There are few folk that need this framework. Maybe you can uninstall 4.0 and as a result fix this and more.

I Googled Windows Update support and called one number listed and was on-line with "PEGGY" for 2? hours.
After a remote connection I was told that I had numerous problems with
my machine and it was suggested that I purchase their (iYogi) product to
eliminate the problems. I finally decided to pay for 2 sessions ($75).
After they performed a cleanup I was assured that the problem was
eliminated. About 30 minutes later I did a complete shut down, not a
restart, and the identical problem arose.
I again called Iyogi for help. After another remote session the
technician turned off the auto install option and turned on the verify
before installing option. I told him that this did not solve the problem
just change it. I was then told that it was a Windows issue and there
wasn't anything they could do. Needless to say I requested a refund.

Sounds like a sales pitch.

Now pitch out NET 4.

".NET programs are written to a specific version of the .NET Framework.
When one needs a version you don't have installed, it'll tell you and
refuse to install. There's no need to upgrade elsewise; and in fact it
will just take up more space."
