I can not install the latest .NET FRAMEWORK. It downloads ok, but when I select to install it I am told that there is another intallation in process and I need to finish that one first.

This has gone one for three weeks now. As a result I can no longer open Windows MSGR. I am told by the computer that maybe I should try to download and reinstall it. But when I try to reinstall it, I get the message that "another installation is in progress..."

I have consulted with the helpers at Mircrosoft. They offered many solutions. All of which I tried. But I guess the problem was too much for them, as I have not had a responce from my last failed attempt (10 days ago !) :flowers:

Also, on a different level of sophistication. Last year I downloaded a paid version of Norton Internet Security. The supbsription expired, but be dammed if I can delete program !! It will not delete !!! or uninstall, I guess that is the better word. I have made several efforts to uninstall the program for several months now.

Thank you for any insights,
also soon I will be trying to resize my c drive from an additional NTFS volume I accidentally created. :thumbsup:
