    I called Pc Safety and got the following fix for kb953297 update not
    installing. Hope this will help others. Please follow exactly according to
    tech. It worked for me. Other fixes did not work that I tried on discussion
    group for this problem. This is the only one that did for my system. Vista
    32 with all updates except the above.

    To troubleshoot the issue you will need to uninstall multiple versions
    of the .net framework using a .net cleanup utility, and then reinstall
    those versions in their correct order.

    To repair the .net framework follow the steps below:

    1. Download .Net Cleanup Utility from the following link:

    2. Using the .net Cleanup Utility, uninstall .Net Framework 1.0,
    1.1, 2.0. 3.0 and 3.5 (The cleanup utility won't allow you to remove
    NET Framework 2.0 on Windows Vista and higher because it is installed
    as an OS component.)

    3. Restart the computer

    4. Download the following components:

    Net Framework 3.5 SP1 (this will also install .Net Framework 2.0 SP2
    and 3.0 SP2)

    Net Framework 1.1

    Net Framework 1.1 SP1

    5. Install the downloaded updates in this order (the order is very

    · .Net Framework 3.5 SP1

    · .Net Framework 1.1

    · .Net Framework 1.1 SP1

    6. Restart the computer
    7. Go to Windows Update then choose CUSTOM update

    8. Under Optional Software Update, check if other versions of .Net
    Framework is being offered

    · IF NO: Close the case as Resolved

    · IF YES: Install the update using Custom Update then dispatch
    the case to Non-Tech Callback

    Once the installation is complete reboot your computer and attempt to
    install updates again.

    Note: If Windows Update is offering .Net Framework and other updates,
    troubleshoot the other update first before dealing with .Net Framework

    Applies to:

    · Add Windows XP SKUs

    · Add Windows Vista SKUs

    Wonderful, worked like a charm! I've had that darn updates available for weeks, now it's gone and all the updates installed. Thank you for the tutorial on this, I couldn't have done it without this information. What; does Microsoft think everyone who uses a computer is a technician? Who's suppose to be able to figure that out! They must just want everyone to buy Windows 7, other than that, I can't figure out why, these things don't work correctly, updates should configure and install automatic as usual. Thanks again!

    RE: KB953297 Fix

    Unfortunately setupverifier generates a series of error messages that begin
    with, "File C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\gacutil.exe.config
    is not installed on the system," when I attempt to verify Netframe 3.5SP1 on
    Vista. Framework 1.1SP1 verifies; however the above error is the first in
    attempts to verify Netframe 2.0SP2, 3.0SP2 and 3.5SP1. I followed KB953297
    exactly, using the Net Cleanup Utility (All Netframe versions - Vista),
    Restart, installing 3.5Sp1, 1.1 and 1.1SP1 in sequence and concluding with
    the Windows Updates (first 1, then 3 additional). Suggestions??
