windows update

Windows update fails to install the microsoft net framework 3.5 service pack and net framework 3.5 family updates. Code 900. I've seen this posted repeatedly except for the code 900, I can't find anyhing when I search for what that code means. I've tried to install directly from website the three seperate downloads that have to be done in the proper order. Two will download, one sends a pop up message that the update does not apply to my computer. Not sure where to go from here with out knowing what the error code 900 means?

After installing Windows Installer 4.5, restart the computer once.

Then try to install Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 Service pack 1 and the Family Updates from Windows Updates and check.

You may also want to try installing the Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 Service pack 1 and the Family Updates standalone package if we are unable to install it from the Windows Updates.

The standalone package links for Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5 Service pack 1 and the Family Updates are as below:
