My problem has many of the same symptoms as Franam posted on Oct 14th.
Every time I run the .Net 1.1 Install it gets to somewhere around the 'Registering Components' section and then... Bingo.... it just reboots. Like Franam I've been through most of the stuff recommended by MS such as cleanups, etc, but every time it's the same performance.
Like Franam, I'm now convinced it's a more deep-rooted problem. About a year ago, I had a Trojan problem and you guys, together with Hijack This got me sorted out. I'm wondering if something got twisted around in that episode that is now causing the problem.
The one thing I did do was to enable Installer Logging and I'm attaching the logfile. Any help greatly appreciated.
PS Obviously not my day, I'm getting a message saying I can't upload a file with that extension. It's a .txt file in Notepad. Help!!
