I have a question how garbage collection works in .NET.  I have a website, which calls a class and then that class calls another class.  Website1 --> class1 --> class2.  If class2 throws an exception which is caught by Website1 and in the Finaly statement I set class1 = Nothing, would this clean up any and all objects tha were initialized up to the exception?  I would like your answer and maybe a link to some good article about this topic.

If class2 has any unmanaged resources, then they will not be disposed of unless you specifically call the Dispose method, otherwise it should be OK

There are heaps of GC articles online (depends on how much depth you want to go into), here's a fairly detailed one that should help:

jppinto,
Please read my entire question,  I believe there is a statement "I would like your answer and maybe a link to some good article about this topic." I was looking for an Expert's opinion and not just a blind link to articles.
