Hello again...

The dotnet updates can be a real bugger. The last time I ran into this problem (same 3.5 update) I had to uninstall ALL of the Net Framework updates and run the cleaner to get things straightened out.

Turn off Windows Automatic Update while doing these steps.

Let's start with the least complicated first. You'll need to download Dial a Fix. Run it...selecting everything on the left side. Then run it again, this time just click on the Flush SoftwareDistribution button. Reboot and try to install 3.5 again.

No Joy?

Run through both methods listed in this Microsoft Article. Method 2 is the one that works most often for me, but try them in order.

I've got a gig tonight so will not be online again until morning, but this should keep you busy for at least a little while. :whistling:

I tried the 1st part with no result and then went to the Microsoft Article, The 2nd step says look in add/remove programs for .net framework client 4. I did this and there is not a file on the system that says client 4

I think that is for the difficulties with the Net framework 4, if you HAVE IT INSTALLED


The next paragraph refers to the problems with the installation of the earlier net framework editions.

To repair the .NET Framework 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, you must uninstall multiple versions of the .NET Framework by using the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool, and then reinstall the components.

FYI I switched the memory and have not had any unintentional reboots since. Wanted to make sure you knew that part of the problem is taken care of.

The .net framework update not installing is a newer issue discovered when trying to track down the rebooting issue.

Please let me know if I need to use the .net framework cleanup tool and then if it deletes something where and how do I get it back? Will I still be able to use internet explorer?

Glad to hear the rebooting has stopped with the RAM changes you made. Funny it would pass memtest as everything pointed to a memory issue. :thumbsup:

Uninstall all versions of the NET Framework, run the cleanup tool, then reinstall all the NET Framework versions in chronological order...starting with version 1.1. All versions are available on the page I linked you to except for the last one. Get all the other versions installed, then get the last one through Windows Update, This is the solution that has most often worked for me as I stated in an earlier reply.
