Turning off system restore got you nothing? WoW! Try using ATF cleaner this may work as a bandaid but you may have some more cleaning to do. What kind of laptop are we working with here? As for the Patches the newest patches cover everything that the old one did plus any new changes. Not sure if you can uninstall the old ones or not. I will ask the windows techs.

For some reason .net framework is not backwards compatible
For programs that need 2'0, that is what you have to use. You can always redownload it when the need arises

Hey, I would trying deleting old files off your hard drive that you don't need, that would probably stop that message from popping up.

How much Used space and Free space does you hard drive have. Open My Computer and right click on Local Drive which in most cases is ©. I use CCleaner to get rid of a lot of left over things. WARNING. Don't use the registry cleaning IMHO. Then go back to My Computer and see if things are getting better. Now while your in Local Disk Properties click on Disk Cleanup and go back and check again. I wouldn't do any thing drastic until I did the basics. One last thing; after all this is done defrag. To do this just go to tools on Local Disk Properties and you will see it. I hope this helps you. Get back to us michael49er.

You may have accidentally deleted a driver file.
