valtor111 Posted December 15, 2009 Share Posted December 15, 2009 I'll try to be brief, but I doubt I can be, to give you the whole story. Alright, so I've got Windows XP with regular updates, and I've had Paint.NET for almost two years now. About a week ago it wouldn't open when I double-clicked on it- instead it slowed down my system. I don't clearly remember how I deleted it, but it took a while to do (I think I did a search, sent the file to recycle bin, then emptied bin). Then I tried to download a more recent version of Paint.NET, aka 3.5, but I got stopped. http://img706.imageshack.us/i/problemn.png/ So I found your site and discovered that an earlier version (what I know now to be 2.0) was problematic, so I used Windows Installer Cleanup to delete versions 2.0, 3.0, and 3.5. Then I read your post where it said I needed 3.0 as a base, so I tried to download it. But somehow, there was still a "newer version" on my computer. http://img519.imageshack.us/i/problem1.png/ So I checked my currently installed programs, and all the computer could recognize was the base 1.1 version. http://img130.imageshack.us/i/problem2h.png/ My computer somehow thinks I still have . . . 3.5, I'm guessing-? still lurking around. But I did a search of all files and folders for the whole computer, using the exact filename, and the computer couldn't find it. http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/8987/problem2x.png So basically, if I try to download 3.5, I get stopped. And if I try 3.0, I get stopped. I simply cannot move ahead, and I'd really appreciate any advice. Thank you very much for reading and considering. I know I've screwed around with my system, so I've probably dug a deeper hole than most people you see. Most sincerely, -Valtor Quote What a pain.
