Furthermore make sure to run the Registry cleaner. it also helps you to remove the residuary entries. After all this reboot the PC and install the latest version of .NET Framework.
You are the BOMB! This worked. I have been trying for months and months to update with constant "failed" messages. THANK YOU. By the way, how do you run the registry cleaner without downloading those SCAM softwares?

Which scam software's are you talking about? Actually, you shouldnt download any of the software that is provided on the net, and even if you download any of those then you should first check its user comments and reviews, to get an idea whether it is good to be used or not. Among all, the best registry cleaner that you can opt for is Ccleaner.
