I have a Windows XP and I currently have Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 installed. Is it safe to uninstall Microsoft .NET framework 1.1, 1.1hotfix, 2.0 Service Pack 1, and 3.0 Service Pack 1? They take up several hundered MB, so I guess it doesn't matter too much.
And also, what exactly is Microsoft .NET framework? I just needed to install it for an application.
You can uninstall it. If you need it again, you'll just have to reinstall it. The funny thing with net framework is the versions are not backwards compatible.
Mark why won't my laptop work?

I will add that...installing 3.5 also installs some of the earlier versions and there is compatibility. I believe that some confusion arises because of the beta releases of various versions, which did not necessarily link with previous versions.
I just did this not more than 30 days ago...so there is some interrelationship.
