I installed .net framework the other day (don't remember version, as I am posting from work and this problem is on my home pc...but its the latest and greatest one) found out it didn't work with the program I was intending to use it with, tried to uninstall... it froze about a third of the way through and refuses to go any further... left it overnight- nothing, tried to uninstall a number of times since then- same thing. I'm thinking that I am going to have to uninstall manually... don't know how to do this though. Any tips/suggestions help ect... would be much appeciated, thanks. I am running xp pro sp2.

Have you tried a system restore point to a date before you installed .net?

Generally unless you have a program that requires it, and Microsoft's insistence not withstanding there is no real need to install .net on ones computer.

I originally was using it for some plugins for google desktop search that required it... I decided to uninstall both them and .net... and as for the restore point, I don't really want to go that route because of my having installed and configured some programs since then that I really dont want to have to reinstall and reconfigure... plus I figure it will be a learning experience if I do it this way... and I want to learn more about computers then I presently know... which is not to say I don't know a lot... because I do- I work for the government as a network admin... I just have not used this particular method before.

If .net will not uninstall and you don't want to try a system restore, one other option is to try reinstalling .net see if you can uninstall afterwards, or just leave it be.
