.NET Framework - Do I need it? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have MS .NET framework 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2, 3.5 SP1, 4 Client Profile and 4 Extended installed on my PC.

    Do I need all of them or can I safely remove any or all of them? I don't do any program design or development. I would appreciate any advise on this.

  • You likely should keep all of them.

    Different software on your system will require those to operate correctly.  Uninstalling any version may cause some programs you have installed to fail.
