    I have 4 different Microsoft .NET Frameworks installed. Do I need all of them? Because they take up a lot of space. So what should I uninstall or install out of them?

    Yes, it's OK to have versions 1, 2, 3, and 3.5 all installed.

    Actually, you're a little behind in updating them. Run a Windows Updates custom scan and check for additional updates for them.

    The .NET Framework 3.0 includes 2.0 and 3.0, but it doesn't include 1.0 or 1.1. If you use programs that require the 1.0 or 1.1 versions of the .NET Framework, you need to leave those installed. If you don't know if you need them or not, the only way to find out is uninstall them and see what breaks.

    I've installed each version of .NET Framework as it's been released, and the newer version doesn't overwrite and remove the older version. Different programs may use a different version of it, so it's playing safe by leaving all versions installed.

    I've heard that version 4.0 will be released in a few months.
