Well this was a bit of a surprise to me when it popped up as it is my only encounter with such an issue with updating. I was wondering if anyone has figured a way to resolve this issue yet. Apparently a few updates were released today and 2 of them (they might be Win 7 specific) were glitching out repeatedly with the 80200053 Error. The two updates were labelled: -Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 Update for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64 (KB982526) -Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile for Windows 7 x64 (KB982670) It is in fact specific for these two updates only, as there were a few others today that installed fine but every time it would bug out on the two. I tried googling this, searching the FAQ's and all that, but it seems a lot of the info out there is based on old problems, sparse in general, or haven't worked. Any thoughts?
