Who is "Reanne"? You may not realize you started your own conversation
thread and others may access this conversation differently than however you
are accessing things to get to this message/post this message. I did a
quick search in this newsgroup and found no recent original post by
"Reanne".- so your comment doesn't help explain your problem much.

All we know right now is the error you get when 'trying to download an
update'. If we take that at face value - you could just be downloading and
saving the update to some folder on your computer for later installation and
the download itself is giving you that error... Or you may be misuing the
term/expanding it beyond its meaning and downloading/installing the update.

There error code you gave (looking it up with Google) seems to refer to:
"The application requested data from a web site, but the response was not
valid. For details, use Event Viewer to view the Application
Logs\Microsoft\Windows\Bits-client\Operational log."

What we don't know is what Operating System you are running, what service
pack level (if any) that Operating System is updated to, if it is 32-bit or
64-bit, what specific update you are trying to 'download', what (if
anything) you have tried in order to attempt to repair the issue, what
antivirus software you are using (be very specific - maker/version), etc.
If you could provide some/all of that information (I'll explain how) -
perhaps someone can assist.

Start button --> RUN --> type in:
(No "RUN", press the WindowsKey+R at the same time.)
--> Click OK.

That will give you (picture at top) the full name of the operating system.
That will give you (in the test) the Service Pack you have installed.

How to determine whether a computer is running a 32-bit version or 64-bit
version of the Windows operating system

Some people (those with 32-bit versions of Windows XP or Windows Vista
anyway) have said that this fixes it:

Re: Error code 80200053

OK, so, I only registered to reply to this message.

Firstly, thanks to Shenan Stanley for posting the reply.

I'm using Windows 7 64-bit and suffered error #80200053 when trying to
install "Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile for Windows 7
x64-based Systems".

The solution suggested - visiting the page "'How do I reset Windows
Update components?' (" and
installing Fix-it worked perfectly. Upon restarting the update installed

So, just to let everyone know there is a solution and it (or at least
seems to) applies to Windows 7 64-bit.
