I assume that you are getting this error on install. It means that .Net Framework is failing to install. This is a required component for OneCare.
Note that if this is a new install and you do not have a subscription already, you cannot activate a new subscription any longer.
If this is a reinstall, the following should assist in repairing the .Net Framework components:
To repair .Net Framework 2.0 on XP:
Open Control Panel
Select Add or Remove Programs
Locate Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0
Select the entry and when the installer launches, select Repair.
Reboot when it completes.
Alternatively, see this KB article:
To remove a corrupt .Net Framework install, use this tool:
The download of .Net Framework 2.0 can be found here:
To repair .Net Framework 2.0 and 3.0 on Vista, see this blog entry:
Note that after repairing or reinstalling .Net Framework, you will need to reapply the .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 update via Windows Update.
If the above does not resolve the problem with OneCare, please contact support:
