I am running Windows XP SP3
I want to install Norton Save and Restore, and the system requirements include .net framework 2.0. My Add/Remove Programs lists .net 1.1, so I guess I do need to get .net 2.0. I went to the following page to download it, but it's unclear which link to click for the required download. [http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=0856eacb-4362-4b0d-8edd-aab15c5e04f5&displaylang=en]
At the bottom of the page there are several links. The closest one looks to me like [Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 (x86)]. Is this the right one?
Also, that page says I need Windows Installer 3.0, and 3.1 is recommended. I don't know how to determine what version of Installer I have.
Can someone help out with this?
Another issue is that in addition to the $49.99 price, it forces me to subscribe to an $8.99 extended backup service to store my download for a year with Digital River. If I make backups of my installation file, why is this forced on me?
None of the stores in my town have a boxed copy of this software.
