Some clarification with you: What do you mean "cannot get my dot net framework 3.5 to work"? Are there any error message?
For Windows 7, it includes the .NET Framework 3.5.1 as an OS component. This means you will get the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 plus a few post 3.5 SP1 bug fixes. The feature of 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 can be added or removed via the Programs and Features control panel.
Could you please try this Verification Tool to verify .NET Framework 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2 and 3.5 SP1 on your machine? Please check "Current status" to know the result of verification - success or failed. If they fails to be verified, we need to repair them.
