SQL 2005 installation problems - .NET Framework 2.0

Hi experts,

Trying to install SQL 2005, on SBS 03 R2 Premium.
Through the installation, SQL goes about installing required components namely .NET Framework 2.0.

All looks well, as in it would appear the required components install correctly, then when SQL installer scans the computer configuration it comes up with an error

"Setup has detected a problem with Microsoft .NET framework installation and cannot proceed. Microsoft .NET framework 2.0 is either not installed on this system or is corrupt"

I have uninstalled .NET framework 2.0.. downloaded the version off the web.. installed that.. no success same message.

I ve looked at the install logs, and am pasting below:

Oh, sorry... that didn't look anything like my Summary.txt (but mine didn't fail, eh?)

I also don't have any *_.NET Framework entries.    Are they small enough to post here?

Hummm.... That by itself is a bit bizzare...

Let's start with some obvious things... let's check the disk to see if you've got a corrupted file system.   Recall that running CHKDSK on the system partition requires a reboot... bummer

What kind of virus checking software do you have running?

Graye,

We use Trend Micro for antivirus solution.

I tried installing SQL on this server prior to it having any antivirus software, and same issue appeared.
I am just running CHKDSK /F, but I don't think this is really an issue.

This is a new server

Graye,

I fixed the issue.
Downloaded the MS Install clean up tool,
Removed:
.Net Framework 2.0
.Net Framework 1.1 (hardware upgrade)
as what appeared in Add/Remove programs.

re-installed .Net Framework 2.0.. and all worked.
I am assuming that this issue pertains to some sort of a conflict with 1.1 version.. and some hardware upgrade...

This is an ACER box.. perhaps it has something to do with that.. never mind.

Thanks for your help, but no points for you today
