    What framework are you talking about.
    Powershell, SQL Server and many other MS products use .NET framework internally. You may run into problems if not aware of this.

    Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and above come with .NET preinstalled. Powershell is 1 app that uses it. Check if other application also use .NET

    Hope this answers your query.

  • When you install your non-Windows operating system, you should be given the option to reformat your hard drive.  When you do that, everything having to do with your current installation should be removed.

  • Hi Electronic bazaar au:

    IMO, if you use Windows Vista/7, it is almost impossible to uninstall the .Net Framework.  But AFAIK, the FX can be fixed doubtlessly with some tools and programs.
