.Net Framework 3.5 will not install on windows 8 with media center

I can't run a lot of my programs because .net framework 3.5 won't install. Whenever I try to install .net framework I get error code 0x800F0922.
I have tried many different ways of enabling .net framework. I have tried enabling it via control panel (turn windows features on and off).

I'm running windows 8 with windows media center.

On an unrelated note I am having trouble installing updates:
  • kb2809289
  • kb2750149
  • kb2779444
  • kb2756872
  • kb2769165
  • kb2770917
  • kb2779768
  • kb2781197
  • kb2785094
  • kb2811660
The computer fails to install updates whenever I install it.

Thanks

Hi,

 

Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

 

From the issue description, I understand that you are unable to install .net framework and few Windows Updates and you get an error 0x800F0922.

Method 1: Run Windows update troubleshooter which will automatically fix some common problems with Windows Update.

e.       Follow the on screen instructions.

 

 

Method 2: Run these commands in Command Prompt (Admin).

a.       Press Windows key +X.

b.      Click on command Prompt (Administrator).


On the open Command Prompt window copy and paste the commands (all at once) –


net stop wuauserv

net stop cryptSvc

net stop bits

net stop msiserver

ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 catroot2.old

Method 4: Temporarily disable third party security software.

 

Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

I am not using any third-party antivirus at the moment.
Right now I am only using windows defender.

I tried all of the methods and none of them worked. Method 1 actually did find an issue and re-downloaded all of the updates but other then that nothing new happened.
