I previously described a set of steps in this blog post that can be used to manually remove the .NET Framework and reinstall it if you receive an error message stating that setup is unable to find the file tmpXXXX.tmp when attempting to install a .NET Framework service pack or hotfix. However, I've heard from a couple of customers over the past few weeks who still received errors related to tmpXXXX.tmp after performing the cleanup steps in that blog post. As a result, I posted a more complete set of steps that you can use to clean up your system and reinstall the .NET Framework. You can find them at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/03/07/8108332.aspx.

It took me 2 days to find you Aaron but [whoopee] it was worth it!! I downloaded your nifty brilliant tool and within 5 minutes my problems had gone away. I was able to get back to business - and... you saved my sanity. Thank you, thank you a million times for all your generosity and kind heartedness in helping lesser gifted computer users like me to get around these pesky glitches that drive us all to distraction!!

Is it better to download the Microsoft .NET Framework altogether to correct the error message "An unhandled exception has occurred in a component in your application," which comes up everytime I start the computer?
Hi Puri Jo - I'm not sure I understand your question. That error message sounds like it is coming from an application that is crashing, not from the .NET Framework. You can try to narrow down which appliation is causing this crash by running msconfig.exe and choosing the Startup tab and looking at the programs that are listed there - those are the programs that are currently configured to start up each time you reboot your computer.
this net frame work v1,1,4322 pops up when i try to click media center. and can't seem to get into media center can you help me? what do i do to get into media center
Hi Mary - I am guessing you are using Windows XP Media Center Edition on your computer. That version of Media Center requires that you have the .NET Framework 1.1 and 1.1 SP1 installed. You can install those versions of the .NET Framework from the links at www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx and www.microsoft.com/.../details.aspx.
