Windows Update Code 490 Errors with .NET

Have seen this one a few times now.

For some reason the Windows Update program fails with an error 490 for the .NET Framework. For most people this can be ignored but if you want to get rid of it this is what worked for me on two client systems:-

This should correct the .NET install and you can now install updates via the Windows Update process.
If this doesn’t work then you may need to ‘clean up’ the .NET Framework installation.
A tool for this can be found here
