Not sure if this is the right place for this but here it goes anyway.
Windows needed a repair install because it would freeze during boot at a black screen. I boots into safe mode just fine. Restoring to an earlier time worked until it needed a reboot for a critical unkown update to windows. after the repair install it says it needs to repair dotnet frameworks then says to reboot. apon reboot it is back to freezing again. if I continue without rebooting everything works good except updates which require a reboot to finish the dotnet repair . Please advise

Uninstall all the Net Frameworks from the add-remove,starting with the lowest version.

Most users don't or won't ever use it...........if you have any programs that need it,they'll ask you to install the version that it needs.

I've been hesitant to reply due to the fact that dealing with removal and reinstall of .Net can be a pain at best of times. Doing so is a risk and might leave you worse off than you are now.

The last set of MS updates included .Net security patches, one of which damaged my system so I couldn't apply all the updates even after downloading manually. I was able to fix it over a few days of reading and downloading tools but it was hit-and-miss and I was without any .Net for a while until Windows Update started working again. It was as much luck as what I did that got it to properly install again.

Some games and other applications will use .Net as well as a lot of developer tools and languages.

If your going to uninstall .Net you'll need the proper tool and guide found here; https://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/08/28/8904493.aspx?Redirected=true .NET Framework Cleanup Tool User's Guide

You might want to go to the MS download page and/or search for the .Net framework your replacing and download them first. IE: "dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe" or "dotNetFx40_Client_setup.exe" and/or "dotnetfx35setup.exe".

.NET Framework Setup Verification Tool User's Guide is another tool and guide you can use to check things; https://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/10/13/8999004.aspx?Redirected=true

Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool - This can be found here; https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30135&WT.mc_id=rss_alldownloads_all

Good luck with whatever you choose.
