I am running Windows 7 Home Premium (SP1) on a fairly new machine. I ran malware and McAfee scans which were all clean. I also ran Aaron Stebner's .NET Framework setup verification tool (which was clean as well). I have been using a software program that uses "Microsoft .net 3.5". We have been having some issues with the program and were advised to turn on the following Windows features:
Control Panel>Programs>Windows Features>Microsoft .Net 3.5>two checkmarks below this
I have repeatedly checked these, tow at a time, one at a time, etc and the system will give me a "wait message", state that all of the features could not be started and request a re-boot. Upon a re-boot, neither of these features are checked.
I have also attempted to re-install 3.5 (and the program itself). We have been unable to re-install 3.5 (it appears to start but just disappears without any confirmation whatsoever). When I look in programs I have Microsoft .Net 4.0, which apparently is the "parent" of 3.5
I have also entirely removed both McAfee & Malwarebytes thinking these may have been blocking us, all to no avail, does anybody have any ideas?
Thank you anybody in advance!
Oh, by the way, system restore is also failing!
