Wow, guess what!!! I was still sitting with that .Net 1.1 not installing issue, even after trying a few more times. I had a check on my update history
on the microsoft website and up came a box saying something about several error logs had been created (due to the non installation of this update) and
would I like to send a report to Microsoft. Usually I say no to sending anything to them because I just don't trust them, but this time I decided to
send it and see if they could do anything.
Today I log in and find that I still have the yellow shield with the .net 1.1 update BUT there was a second .net 1.1 update with a different code
number at the end of the title. So I hit the 'update now' button and hey presto, both of them actually installed!!!!! Ta-dah!
I then went onto the website and did a 'check for updates' and a .net 4 update came up and I installed that too, successfully. As a final check I
looked at the update history and all have installed just fine. Whooop Whooop.
Not sure if these updates will have sorted the system restore issue, but now a bit reluctant to try a system restore in case I cock-up the new
Thank you for all your help and patience, and thank you also to everyone else who posted with advice, muchly appreciated.
