Hi!! Have you seen the Web Post "Aaron Stebner's Weblog: Automated clean-up tool to remove the .net???? It covers 3.5 and he has an e-mail, which I would definitely use before using his tool. blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2006/05/30/611355.aspx :)



I had the same install error when putting .Net 3.5 on a vista machine. The result was that all userids on the machine lost authority to do anything (couldn't even open Notepad).

Luckily, I could still log on in Safe Mode and use System Restore to back out to a previous restore point.

Hi! That's interesting..... I wonder why he doesn't mention anything like that? He apparently has full or at least partial use of his computer. It crashed and then came back....What's better ? Tool or Restore ?
