    To install this update, you must contain Windows Installer 3.1 or a later edition installed on the system. To get the most up-to-date edition of Windows Installer, you have to visit the Microsoft website. You can take out Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0 with the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool, and after that you have to reinstall the Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0 in addition to install the Update.

    From my opinion you have to attempt Going to Program and Features, then you have to press on it. Then go down to Microsoft.Net Framework 4 Client Profile and after that right press on it. It will provide you an option of Uninstall/Change, press it. After that, it will provide an option to Repair it, choose repair it. It will get about 4-10 minutes to repair (with my computer) experience may vary. While finished, go to you update center, in addition to update it again.
