    Start by checking which versions of .NET
    are installed on your computer. You can do this two
    ways, look at the versions displayed in the Add/Remove
    programs list or read the following article:
    Write the versions on a piece of paper!

    Next you want to uninstall any version of .NET 2.0 and
    higher installed on your computer.
    (if version 1.0 or 1.1 is installed I'm almost certain there is no need to
    un-install these as long a they are not corrupted).

    Next you are going to use an additional "Clean Up" tool
    "Automated cleanup tool to remove the
    ..NET Framework 1.0, 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5"
    This tool has a pull down list so only pick the versions
    you un-installed from the list!

    Now try re-installing .NET 3.5 SP1 by downloading and running the

    Last install this update:
    "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update for Windows XP x86, and Windows
    Server 2003 x86"
