.NET Framework security updates fail (KB974417)

I'm running WinXP/pro SP3. I *always* use MS update.

The following four updates always fail (and have been failing for some time):
KB974417 -- Error Code: 0x645 (since 16-Oct-2009)
KB953297 -- Error Code: 0x64C (since 16-Oct-2009)
KB971090 -- Error Code: 0x663 (since 29-Jul-2009)
KB963707 -- Error Code: 0x80070663 (since 18-Jul-2009)

I've tried all the standard repair procedures with no success. I don't
(knowingly) use or muck around with the .net framework. I've been running
MSUpdate for years -- these updates just don't work. Other updates work fine.

The machine runs fine. Any ideas? I'd like to avoid spending days in
configuration hell if possible.

KB974417, KB953297, and KB971090 are Security updates.
Microsoft offers *** no-charge support *** for getting Security updates
installed. From the 3 updates' MSKB articles:
Ex: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/953297

" How to obtain help and support for this security update

For home users, no-charge support is available by calling 1-866-PCSAFETY
in the United States and Canada or by contacting your local Microsoft
subsidiary. For more information about how to contact your local
Microsoft subsidiary for support issues with security updates, visit the
Microsoft International Support Web site:

North American customers can also obtain instant access to unlimited
no-charge e-mail support or to unlimited individual chat support by
visiting the following Microsoft Web site:
http://support.microsoft.com/oas/def...spx?&prid=7552 "

And, if you do decide to contact MS, they will then become aware of the
installation issues associated with this month's round of updates.

Download your free copy of the Belarc Advisor here:

Install Belarc Advisor by running the setup program "Advisor.exe" (about a
2-Meg download), then you can scroll down to see these failed updates. They
will most likely have a red 'X' by them, with relevant links to get
information. Hope that helps get you started on more fruitful
troubleshooting. :)
