Cannot install Quickbooks 2011 - .NET Framework 3.5 error

Windows XP SP 3
.NET Framework 4

I have been trying to install quickbooks 2011 and have ran into the same road block about 6 times now. I am receiving the error:
1st:
The installer encountered an error when running "C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\Pro\third" /q/norestart
System message - The operation completed successfully.    Click OK or Cancel.
Clicked OK
Component: Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Location:
"C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\Pro\thirdparty\dotnet35\dotnetfx35setup.exe" /q/norestart
System message - Fatal error during installation.
Click OK
Setup.exe has encountered an error, send error report....
Click Finish.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.0 both 2 times and downloaded them from the microsoft website and also tried letting the qb software try to install it. Obviously no success there. I really need to have this up and running by the morning so all the help is GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thanks!
