Do a scan at the Windows update site click here. After it scans for updates it'll probably offer you .NET framework as one of the recommended updates. You can then download & install it.

just tried that; all iT tells me I need is the " shared password " thing; nothing else.........

click here explains a little more on .net framework.

I'm not completely sure of all the ins and outs myself but when I installed "Drive image 7" I had to install .net framework as well. j.

Control panel/add/remove programs and if you have it, this is where you will see it. j.

If the certain program you're trying to run/install wants .NET & cannot find it, then it either isn't present on your system or has gotten corrupted. I suppose the next best thing to do (as the Win update didn't help) is to manually download & install the .NET software. To download - click here. It is a large download - 23MB so I'd suggest first saving the download to a folder on your PC then clicking on the saved file to install. If you need it in the future you won't have to download it again.

You need Net Framework to use Drive Image 7.0 if you use this package it will install it for you.

that is correct

I WAS actually " looking at" spyclean from Guard IE .IT needs this "thing" apparently, but am wondering WHY now; what is so special ABOUT the .NET thing that it COULD BE needed BY that programme.....I may just stay clear OF it and use what I have here......
