Yesterday I decided to use windows update and had it install .NET 1.1\nand 2.0. On reboot I got a BSOD before the desktop loaded. In safe\nmode it was fine so had windows load last good configuration, removed\n..NET. Everything was fine again. Decided to download Vista RC1 and\ninstall that. On first boot of the OS got the BSOD again. Well, Vista\ncomes bundled with .NET so that explains it. The BSOD is just a stop\nerror and gives no indo as to what is causing it, just some numbers\nand letters that mean nothing to me. Anyone experience this before and\nknow the cause? As for now I'm back to XP sans .NET.
