  • Hi Seaner,

    Some clarifications:
    What's your OS?
    Which version of these two .NET Frameworks with SP2 do you want to remove? .NET 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5?

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

    Firstly, please check your OS. 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
    If .NET Framework is included as OS component, it cannot be removed.

    Secondly, check your applications. For applications, if you have some application based on .NET Framework 2.0 on your PC, you cannot remove .NET Framework 2.0 because it is needed to support the application to run.

    If the above steps are checked, you can try Cleanup Tool to remove .NET Framework that you want to uninstall.

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

    Best regards,
    Yichun Chen
