All I wanted to do was update my Bios and Drivers at Dell for my D600. They recommended their Download Manager. Then I was prompted to download Microsoft Net Frameworks so I could use their download manager. BIG mistake. I never realized it would be such a big program and I want to uninstall it ALL. So I have Net Frameworks 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 and Service Packs and Hotfixes etc. What is the best way to uninstall ALL of Net Frameworks? I also have a couple Net Frameworks which downloaded but Failed to install too.

EDIT: Removed list of programs, not pertinent/clutter ~ Hamluis.

In the first place...you don't need to use Dell's download manager, I've yet to figure out why it exists (unless it's for Dell customers with dialup).

To uninstall MS.NET...simply go to Add/Remove Programs...uninstall each listing for MS.NET Framework in inverse order. Uninstall 3.5, SP1 first...then go to whatever else remains.

Do not bother uninstalling security updates to MS.NET, focus only on 3.5, SP1...then 3.0...then 2.0. If you have 1.1 installed, it can be uninstalled, it's been outdated for years now.

Thanks, uninstall from Control Panel worked fine, inverse order. I have a few Frameworks Updates that I downloaded but they Failed to install. How do I delete those?

I would not even worry about them :thumbsup:.

You could do a search for them and see the file locations...and then delete them, if you like.

Windows Update download files usually end in enu.exe. You could run a Search on *enu.exe" to try to find the downloaded files.
