problem with installer

  ouch 20:24 13 Sep 2006

Can anyone help me sort out a problem with windows installer please. several weeks a go I downloaded an update for Microsoft NET Framework, it downloaded ok but when it began to installer it stopped half way and said their was a problem. now everytime I switch on my pc the installer retries to install and I get the same message. I tried ms help line but they havent come up with anything. i can give more details if anyone has any ideas what it may be.

Can you System Restore to before you installed the update?

Does this help click here
"Setup cannot install Microsoft .NET Framework because another version of the product is already installed."

I have tried system restore and it doesnt help. the download page you gave me is probably the one I downloaded from in the first place and If I download it its not going to help as installer is still trying to install the first download, hence my problem. I have tried to uninstall too but it wont do that either. thanks though.

Bit more info is needed really ouch.
The update you downloaded,was it the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0

If so,there is a couple of threads about this and a similar problem,and a fix is availble.

skidzy, thanks that seems to have helped although I dont know if its sorted it completely but its more than MS has done for me so far. thank you.
