[.NET] A Microsoft race

My Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 is screwed. Cannot start the application. After trying to fix it with the troubleshooting guide from Microsoft without any joy it looked as if the best solution was to use the canonical uninstall/reinstall pattern. A poll for you all: is it gonna take longer to uninstall Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 or to download the 3gigs ISO from Torrents? After 30minutes it looks very tight, who's gonna win?

run devenv.exe /resetskippkgs 90% of the time, it works *every* time.

too late - I think Tarella already uninstalled the crap out (goog to know anyway = I think I used that cmd line for something else, can't remember what)
