    KB2656351 Dot Net on a Rampage!

    Hey Y'all,

    Just thought I'd be a little proactive in case this pops up for someone else.

    KB265351 { a .Net 4 update } just kept installing and installing every time I shutdown my Win 7 HP SP-1 fully patched.
    Windows update showed 4 successful installs but it kept wanting to install at shutdown or if I ran WU and told it to check for updates. Even ran WU as Admin still didn't clear it up.

    So I googled and tried the .Net Repair Tool couldn't fix the problem.
    Next I uninstalled the KB and then ran the .Net Repair tool still couldn't fix the problem.

    Getting drastic I ran the .Net Cleanup Tool which uninstalled all .Net versions.
    Reinstalled .Net 4 (PowerShell 3 won't run w/o it) and ran Windows update...Success.

    So if you run in to this problem maybe you can save yourself some time and frustration by heading right to the .Net Cleanup Tool. HTH
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!
