hello ...i downloaded paint.net last night. after the download completed, it said i had to download "framework" in order for paint.net to work and referred me back to a link at download.net. i downloaded framework link but it resulted in errors that my nortons systemworks program could not repair so i tried remove paint, framework 2.0 and framework.3.0. from my computer. framework 2.0 gave an error message sending me to a link which is no longer available. framework 3.0 referred me to a microsoft support link.. but it didnt tell me how to delete the program.. i contacted microsoft by phone and they want $59 for tech support which i dont have please tell me how to remove the programs. im at my wits end.. thank you tonya (my computer is windows xp and was working perfectly before this download)
