I actually found an alternative solution (http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/w...) that did work. It may actually do the same thing.

The solution that worked for me was "What to do is download dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip from here.. http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live.com/self... Unzip files and run tool and select to remove .NET Framework 4 (there is a drop window asking which .NET Framework you wish to remove,make sure you select .NET Framework 4.)..This tool will safely remove client profile part of .NET Framework 4. You will not be able to remove it by using add/remove programmes as normal because it has become corrupt.Once tool has removed files restart computer and check windows update.You should find .NET Framework 4 client profile offered as an update (KB982670).Download and install this..Restart computer again and run windows update.You should be offered the problem KB2446708 as a high priority update.Install this and it should be fine, you shouldn't see it reappear again as before. Best of luck."

Yes. The Microsoft article contains another method to try but if that doesn't work, it sends you to the cleanup tool.
