By 'not current' do you mean the subscription has expired and Norton no
longer can obtain definition updates ?
If the answer is yes, then you have more pressing matters to attend to
then worrying about installing .NET Framework 3.5 SP and the .NET Mafia
First step is to go here using Internet Explorer and have the system
scanned for the presence of malware:
Second step, if the OneCare scanner detects and removes any detected
resident malware, is to uninstall Norton and get another antivirus
Uninstall Norton from Add/Remove Programs [ARP]in the Control Panel.
Then visit Symantec.com and grab the Norton removal tool:
Run that after removing Norton from ARP.
Install an antivirus. Free worthwhile ones are Avast and Antivir.
Use google to find them.
After doing the above 2 steps, check the versions of .NET installed in ARP.
IF there are no .NET runtimes installed higher then .NET Framework 1.1,
suggest you hide .NET 3.5 SP1 and the .NET Family update.
IF .NET 2.0 is installed, you can apply .NET Framework SP2 as a
substitute for the above:
Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 2
