Unable to install .NET Framework 3.5 (Due to .NET Framework 3.0 installation failure)

Hello,

I've been unable to install .NET Framework 3.5 due to a .NET Framework 3.0 installation failure 1603.

I've tried the following:
Ensured that administrators have full control to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Security\ServiceModel 3.0.0.0

Removed all versions of .NET Framework using .net framework removal tool and rebooted.

Stopped all IIS services and re-ran the install.

This is an SBS in production with Exchange, Trend Micro Server, so I can't really reinstall IIS6.

Below are the logs:

I've tried the cleanup utility for 3.0 pre-release as well as the .NET Framework cleanup tool and removed all version.

I can try the gradual install plan.  I'd really like to avoid reinstalling IIS, so I'm leaving that as my last step.
