In that case, you would need a Windows 7 CD, which should be the same one you used to upgrade to Windows 7 (if I'm not mistaken).

Yes I tried that again this morning. I used the Microsoft .net uninstall tool and was able to get 1.1 and 1.1sp1 to install, but 3.5 fails to install and 4.0 does not install either. I am also back to c++ 2005 constantly installing every time I run windows update. And even though I let windows update install C++ 2005, it doesn't show up as installed.

HP Restore sounds like a CD to restore to factory settings, not to repair install. You'll need a Windows 7 CD unless you're happy restoring to its factory settings (in such case, make sure to back up your data first).

I run that as administrator and I get an error this product is not supported on Vista Operating system. Which is weird because I am running Windows 7 Home Premium. This computer was originally Windows Vista, but it came with the Windows 7 upgrade which I did through the upgrade disc that came with the computer.

Previously when trying to install 2.0 it states that installing 2.0 is not necessary because it comes as part of the operating system.

I tried using the CD you suggested (Windows 7 upgrade cd) and got the message, the version of windows you are trying to install is older than the version you are currently running. The installer then closes.

I also ran a windows 7 64-bit repair disk and that did not resolve the issue. I am able to run windows update and was successfully able to update C++ 2010, but I am still having issues with C++ 2005 and the .net framework.

Also my mouse still resets every time I restart the computer. It doesn't save my settings even after clicking apply.

You might want to uninstall any service packs on your Windows that you did not have at the time it was upgraded to Windows 7. Then try the repair install again. See if that works.

I was able to uninstall SP1 and then run the upgrade disk which re-installed Windows 7. Now I am getting windows update failures about half the time on anything from windows security updates to .net framework updates. Sometimes the updates install other times they dont.

I am running the system update readiness tool now.

Well, after installing the system update readiness tool I still get the message no more updates so looks like everything has been fixed. I am able to run the game that was causing these problems to begin with. So thank you for your help Amlak and happyrock I appreciate it!

I just had this problem yesterday with a laptop that I was fixing with .NET Framework 4 it was a pain but eventually I got it fixed.
Here is what you want to do and I hope this works for you.

1.) Download this .NET Framework Cleanup Utility here
2.) Once downloaded run the tool and choose to clean all version of .NET Framework
3.) Clear your temp folder by going to run and type %temp%
4.) Restart your computer
5.) Now try to re-install the .NET Framework

After uninstalling all the versions then run the cleanup tool. Reboot and then install the versions in chronological order. This method has worked for everyone we have suggested it to but it has to be run in the exact order or it will fail.

I appreciate the advice, I did as you both suggested. I ran the uninstall, then the clean up tool, cleared my temp folder, restarted, etc... I was still getting the errors with the install. My only option was to re-install the upgrade. Which I did, and everything is running smoothly now. .Net Framework is installed and windows update is working properly. Thanks again for all of your help!
