There is apparently an issue with the 'installed' .NET Frameworks that
is preventing the updates from being installed.
Please see -

Updated: what to do if other .NET Framework setup troubleshooting steps
do not help

To avoid interference from 3rd party software ( antivirus/security
suite, etc. ), suggest you configure XP to Clean boot first, then go
through the steps starting with attempting a Repair of the troublesome
..NET Frameworks, .NET 2.0 first and .NET 3.5 second.

How to configure Windows XP to start in a clean boot state
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310353

NOTE: If a 3rd party firewall was previously being used please open
Windows Firewall in Control Panel to confirm that it is now On once
you've booted to the Clean state. ALL 3rd party firewalls are Disabled
in a Clean boot.

If the attempted Repair of the .NET Frameworks fails, then proceed with
the rest of Aaron's recommendations.
