  • Are you asking about upgrading your computer to Windows 7? If so, you'll get a lot more feedback if you ask here:

    What Windows version are you going to upgrade from? The answer to that question is important because if you are currently running XP, you cannot do a traditional upgrade to Windows 7. You *can* use an upgrade version of Windows 7, because your installed XP qualifies, but the procedure you will follow will not preserve your existing software and files.

    For more info and help, please follow the link I've provided to the forum for installing, upgrading and activating Windows 7.

    As far as removing .NET v1.1 is concerned, try this.

  • Hi Oldmanwildbill,

    Thank you for your post.

    Referring to removal of .NET Framework 1.1 on Windows 7, it depends on the applications that are run on your PC.
    This means, if you have any application or program that is based on .NET Framework 1.1, you need to leave .NET 1.1 on your machine to make the application or program run properly.

    If you cannot remove .NET Framework 1.1 manually via Control Panel, you can also try Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to clear it.

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

    Best regards,
