Anyone had this error with updating .NET before?

After trying to update Windows I get an error code when .NET tries to install. The error code is: 0x80131506.
I have search Google and Microsoft, but cannot find a fix, so I have turned off this particular update. Anyone know of a way to make it work? Do I really need it on my computer (XP Home)?

Thanks. Looks like, after reading the comments, that there is not a decent way to fix the error yet. The daft thing is that Microsoft's fix advice is awash with warnings that things can go wrong if the hotfix is applied. They advise not to do it. Way to go Microsoft!

I know......part of my conspiracy theory with any Microsoft updates, fixes etc
