Hide Show Step on Wizard Conteol

I have a Wizard control and am having trouble hiding some steps depending on what was selected on the first step.

Basically There are 3 steps Step 1, Step 2, Step 3

On Step 1 there are 2 checkboxes ---  chkStep2  and chkStep3

If None of the checkboxes are selected then step 2 and 3 are hidden

If Only chkStep2 is checked and chkStep3 is not checked then only Step 2 is viisible and has a step type of "Finish"

If Only chkStep3 is checked and chkStep2 is not checked then only Step 3 is viisible and has a step type of "Finish"

If both are checked then both steps 3 and step 2 are visible

The "if"  statement is stright forward I am just not sure on what event on the wizard i need to put it on

Thanks for your help

Watch Question

       don't try to hide.
based on the first step condition
navigate directly to the step what you want
using the

ActiveStepChanged event

Used this code but it doesnt hide corretly and i get this error on some occasions:

The command 'MoveComplete' is not valid for the previous step, make sure the step type is not changed between postbacks      

Step 1 = Details
Step 2 = Trial
Step 3 = NewsLetter
Private Sub Wizard1_NextButtonClick(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Web.UI.WebControls.WizardNavigationEventArgs) Handles wizSecSellerReg.NextButtonClick
		If wizSecSellerReg.ActiveStepIndex = 0 Then
			If chkNewletter.Checked = False And chkTrials.Checked = True Then
				wizSecSellerReg.ActiveStepIndex = 1
			End If
			If chkNewletter.Checked = True And chkTrials.Checked = False Then
				wizSecSellerReg.ActiveStepIndex = 2
			End If
			If chkNewletter.Checked = False And chkTrials.Checked = False Then
			End If
		End If
	End Sub
