.NET Framework Issues

Recommended Posts

I was referred here from another forum, who helped me with malware/ virus issues. It turns out that a lot of windows own files were infected. Through the SFC /SCANNOW command, I was able to get most of the files back onto the system, however, i also needed to reinstall a few program files. I seem to be having issues reinstalling the .NET Framework. I have removed remnants of it with the Microsoft uninstall tool, and then tried reinstalling first through Windows Updates, where it downloads the update but fails to install everytime. I also downloaded dotnet3.5 file from Microsoft but that too fails to install. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.


I have a Dell Inspiron 1520 laptop. 1GB Ram. 100GB HDD. Running Windows XP PRO SP3.



I have since found a dotnetfx cleanup tool, which I ran. It cleared all instances of the Net Framework, and then tried reinstalling via Windows Updates, this time it was a success.
