No-one knows you've done anything unless you put a reply post up
There's no obvious errors in either CBS or CheckSUR logs.

I would suggest resetting Windows Update - How do I reset Windows Update components?
post back with your results.

If you modify an existing post, the system doesn't flag the thread as being unread, and doesn't notify the other participants that anything has change - a reply post tells the system to flag it, and email all involved.


I suspect that the problem is with the basic .NET install - and that can only be cured by a repair install or clean install.

See here for instructions for a repair install....
