Have you tried every single step from this thread: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=854 ?


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Thanks for replying and yes.

1. .NET Framework is installed.

2. Applies to v2.5 only.

3. Installed Cleanup utility but there was no old Paint.net in the listing.

4. & 5. Repaired Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 twice.

6. Can't run PdnRepair because Paint.net is not installed.

7. Didn't move Paint.net.

Not sure if this is somehow related but for the past month or so I've not been able to install Windows updates or ever search for updates. Tried most of the solutions found on the Internet without results.

You need to enable your "Windows Modules Installer" service, aka TrustedInstaller. My guses is you followed some "optimization" or "tweak" guide online, and it told you to disable it. Am I right?

No sir. It's enabled and set for Automatic. Sometimes when I reboot I receive the message that it has stopped so I go into Services and restart it. It then seems to stay started; however, I just noticed that I cannot disable, stop, pause, or restart it, so, apparently what I see in Services is not really what is happening.
