Netframework 1.1 SP1 will not stop updating!

Report Post 1 Minute Ago
I keep getting this update reminder on my netbook XP to update Netframework 1.1 SP1. As far as I see it's already there, unless this is a new update for it. Please, no reminders XP is not longer supported. In fact, there is a small simple hack to get updates until 2019. And it's been working for me and 2 other XP machines.

However I try to install it and it doesn't install. Some other place said delete it and try the update. I can't even delete it. Windows will not allow me. So for the present I have shut off Updates and hid the Security icon on the tasktray that trys to bug me.

Anyone know how to resolve this issues or point me where it's discussed for a resolution. Many places I have gone just yak about it and hit and miss. I've found no real solving. I have even gone to the MS Update website and told update to forget about this, do not remind me. That's doesn't work! Thanks for any suggestions. ":-\

For now, just uninstall .NET (all of them) and see if that cures it. There are too many causes but since very few folk need .NET I start by removing all of them. Here's a cleaner.

It may have been updated but you can hunt that down. I did not broach the subject about what happens after any .net update. That is the background recompile....
