My computer crashed early this past week and for the first time since I bought it in early 2006, I had to do a complete restore of the operating system. Which, of course, has meant wading through over 200 updates and who knows what all. Everything has gone smoothly, though it's been a pain in the ass, but now Windows Update is telling me I need Microsoft .NET framework 3.5, and it simply won't install. I have tried a few tricks and suggestions from the net, but none has made any difference. Has anyone else run into this? I can't figure out what could be clocking the install.
