  1. Hello, im having a few problems (windows xp sp2)

    I installed .net framework 3.0 yesterday, since then..

    -IE7 fails to install :S (will provide log)
    -Can't read PDF's (before i could)

    So im guessing its the .net framework doing it? Im willing to post logs of anything its just i have no idea how to fix this!

    Would posting my software versions from belarc help?

    Thanks :D

    Doubt that .NET has anything to do with it.
    You might want to uninstall Internet Explorer 7, then reboot, defrag, then reinstall IE7
    What reader are you using to attempt to read your PDF's?

    I was using adobe reader, but it somehow disappeared.

    Have tried easyPDF and a few other free alternatives.

    -IE7 log added

    the dot Net framework stuff is totally unnecessary. Once in awhile you find something
    that requires it. Personally, I've yet to find something I need strongly enough to warrant installing dot Net** (imo) junk.

    There are now three version of this stuff from Microsoft -- that ought to tell you something.
