I don't know which groups were eliminated by the author, but one was
dotnet.general. Since the OP is installing .Net 3.5 + sp 1, it would be
appropriate to answer the question here, where I am seeing it. At least
it is appropriate to see an answer here by a searcher at a later date.
As the response said, rebooting should help. Just because you don't see
an active user interface to an install, does not mean one is not
occurring. You should look at the task manager, and kill any
msiexec.exe processes, then try again.
