.net 3.5 framework update installed but will not boot RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was intructed by Microsoft to download and install the .net Framework 3.5 update, which my laptop (windows xp, SP2) did successfully. i was then instructed to shut down my laptop and re-start. on re-starting, it made it to the windows profile login page, but then goes no further. the cpu light is constantly on, i have left it for hours to get through whatever it is working on but does not make any progress past the windows profile page.

    how can i get rid of this update if I can't access the remove/uninstall feature in windows? or any button/icon for that matter?
