  • Hi Johnpenn,

    Thank you for your post.

    Some clarification with you:
    What's your OS?

    Referring to removal of any versions of the .NET Framework, it depends on the applications and OS that are ran on your PC.

    For OS, here is a useful blog that shows what version of .NET Framework is included in what version of OS. See: http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/archive/2007/03/14/mailbag-what-version-of-the-net-framework-is-included-in-what-version-of-the-os.aspx

    For applications, if you have some application based on .NET Framework 2.0 or 3.0 on your PC, you cannot remove .NET Framework 2.0 or .NET Framework 3.0 since we need .NET Frameworks to support the application. If you don't have any .NET 2.0 or 3.0 application, you can try .NET Framework Cleanup Tool to remove them.

    compression pack 1.0 for wind. xp

    visual c for 2005 redistributable

    visual ++ 2008 ATL update kb973924

    These installers are some runtime products or security updates for the existing products or OS. It would be better to keep them on your machine.

    Hope this helps! If you have any concern, please feel free to let me know.

  • Yap you need them all, If you are using software built upon them.

    I don't know about a utility, but when  you install software they (the necessary) will install automatically, or may be they will alert when you have to download and install them manually.
