Via "Add or Remove Programs" acessible though the Control Panel you can remove .net 2.0.
After that I highly recommend to reboot the computer before reinstalling the framework.
I had to do this 3 times on XP Pro and except the reboot, never had any problems.

Thanks.  Did you reinstall from the Microsoft Update via internet?  I need to remove it from a Server 2003 and a few workstations XP pro.

No, we had the installation files on a share. I didn't use Microsoft Update.

That depens on the app you want to run... I would recommend latest version including all bug- and security fixes.
