why on earth would you want to remove your .net framework? maybe i'm a little lost you have 3 copies of .net framework 2 on your machine? or you have .net 1, 2, and 3 ?

I had to remove it yesterday (I had to use another program specifically for removing .NET) because Visual Studio 2008 wouldnt install.

I cant access the link now but Ill post the link to the program later today if you are interested on trying it out :) You can use it to eliminate any version of .NET (or all versions).

Please note that I do recommend having at least one version of .NET installed on you system. Without it any .NET application may not run on your machine.

*edit: .NET cleanup utility (*.zip)

They're not inclusive. That means that .NET 3 does not include everything in .NET 1 and .NET 2. Unless you know which programs are using which versions, you need to leave them all installed.

When you get to the product to cleanup dialog box, there is a drop down menu that you can select what versions of .NET to get rid of (or ".NET Framework - All Versions")

Insure that you know what you want to do however as software that uses a specific .NET framework may not work anymore. If you are only wanting to get rid of some versions of .NET do to hard drive space requirements, then I would not recommend it...There are better methods to free up hard drive space.
