I appreciate your nice reply.
Unfortunately, I am still having trouble.
>>>Look at the Add and Remove Programs control panel app and see if Service Pack 2 is listed there. If it is, try reinstalling/repairing it and then check Windows Updates again.
...I did that and it still is in Windows Updates. Furthermore, there really does not seem to be a fully fleshed-out "reinstall/repair" built-in, when I click "Change" in AddRemovePrograms for this item, it runs something but there is no dialog or other indication
of exactly what it is doing-- it just runs and the finishes.
>>> If it still present in Windows Updates uninstall from your computer, reboot, and then install from Windows Updates.
...when I try to uninstall Framework 2 Sp 2, the procesing is halted by a prompt saying... "Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 cannot be uninstalled because it will affect other applications that are installed. For more information, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=91126"
...so I am stuck and that link send me to... http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/bb188202.aspx ...where it seems that I need to uninstall back to the Framework 2 if I want to continue the uninstall. As such, uninstall seems impractical and will probably
be a last resort. That is, I would rather live with the nag than (essentially) rebuild my machine.
If you have more thoughts on the process, then please let me know.
