Same here.

If Microsoft really delivers TLS1.3 and no major security flaws are found, I have the feeling that we will still be around for quite some time. Not to mention that I am planning to ask Microsoft if they'll keep their Premium Support available after April 2019 and how much it would cost, 'cause if there are still a considerable amount of companies that are paying for it, they'll keep it and I would be more prone to pay for it rather than paying a W10 licence. After all, the US military services - including the navy and the air force - already said that they have specialised hardware and hand-written software running on XP-derivate and they didn't plan to upgrade anytime soon 'cause it would require a complete rewrite of the softwares and further tests before deploying them to the field. Imagine having to rewrite programmes written in C/C++ with the core in x86 ASM for radars, proximity controllers, navigation systems, airflow controllers, pressure stabilisers and many other things...  I mean, it's possible and it would probably get some benefits from x64 and modern AVX512 intrinsics, but it would be a pain in the b- uh... I mean a nightmare to re-write, test and support.

I will continue using XP after April 2019 even if I do not have updates. The most important thing for security is the browser and I use one for XP that is updated approximately every month: Mypal 27.9.4 (oldrac, Pale Moon based) https://github.com/Feodor2/Mypal/releases

Other browsers for XP that are updated weekly: http://rtfreesoft.blogspot.com/search/label/browser

New Palemoon 27 (New Moon, Feodor2's patches based "Mypal") Also versions SSE or noSSE.
KM-Goanna (KMeleon)
Firfox 45ESR SSE (Nightly, Mozilla based)
Basilik 52/UXP (Serpent, Basilisk based)
PM28XP (New Moon, Pale Moon based, pre-release)

+1. I see no reason to abandon XP just because updates stop. I didn't abandon XP when they stopped the first time (and I didn't know about POSReady '09)!

No need to manually install any update. The bug of Microsoft seems to have been fixed and it does not take more than 5 minutes.Screenshot - 11_09_2018 , 19_08_18.jpg

A manual run of the MU picked up all the updates and they all seemed to install fine.  However, kb4458318 popped up again after a second run of MU.  I manually downloaded that one and ran the trusty /overwriteoem switch and that took care of that.

Yes, I had to do that too!
I also can't install KB4457046.
It throws error 0x66A every time on Microsoft Update, and when I try the standalone installer, I get "KB4457046 does not apply, or is blocked by another condition on your computer."
Anyone any ideas about that?
I can't find any reference online to that specific problem.
The other .NET 4.0 update installed fine.
:dubbio:

Hey Dave, until you get some replies from the heavy hitters I'll add I do my installs with my virus protection disabled.  Also have you tried clearing your temp folder for your updates?  The last thing I can think of is check your logs for a clue.

Yes, the lovely yellow shield is back.

There's no need to manually install updates anymore, Microsoft Update it's back and it works as it should. :D

@Dave-H

It seems that KB4457046 is a critical security update for .NET Framework 4 Extended only. If You have only .NET Framework 4 Client Profile installed on Your system then this update is not required for You and this is a Microsoft Update error if it appears again and again.

Sorry for the delay in responding, I don't seem to be getting any e-mail notifications of replies again.
:(
Yes, I only have Client Profile installed on the machine with the problem, so that would certainly explain it!

@Dave-H: you may want to visit Aaron Stebner's wonderful Unified .NET Framework Troubleshooting Guide page:
https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/astebner/2005/08/22/unified-net-framework-troubleshooting-guide/
once there you might download the Setup Verification Tool and the Tool to Gather Logs and run them... you'll get a wealth of info about your setup without harming it, and as a bonus, you get familiar with one of the most useful single pages on the web! :yes:
We have cross posted... well, I'm glad my suggestion is unnecessary, in view of your latest post. Then again, I still recommend a visit to Aaron's page, just to get familiar with it and his powerful tools. :)
