| I ran the NET framework cleanup tool. |
I turned off Teatimer and all antispyware and rebooted.
Using Windows Update, I first tried the Net Framework 1.1 Service Pack, but received this message:
Net Framework 1.1 Service Pack:
Application has generated an exception that could not be handled.
Process id=0x7c8(3192), Thread id=0xc88(3196).
Click OK to terminate, Click Cancel to debug the application.
Registered JIT debugger is not available. An attempt to launch a JIT debugger with the following command resulted in an error code of 0x2(2). Please check computer settings.
cordbg.exe !a 0x7c8
Then I tried the 3.5 Service Pack. It downloaded, installation was initialized, and then I got the "Installing Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847) x86" message.
But the process just hung at that point. After half an hour opf nothing happening, I canceled the program.
I've tried this whole process twice now with the same results.
