I have been running into QuickBooks problems. Looks like I need to reinstall .net framework. When I go into Control Panel > Add Remove Programs, I see

Microsoft .NET Compact Framework 2.0
Microsoft .NET Framework (English) v1.0.3705
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Hotfix (KB928366)
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

I can't uninstall .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. When I Select remove, it gives me an error.  I opened the error and here it is:

[05/05/09,07:17:06] Windows Installer Patch Registration Fix for .NET Framework 3.5 (x86): [2] CGenericComponent::Install() expects the setup file for Windows Installer Patch Registration Fix for .NET Framework 3.5 (x86) but fails to get it
[05/05/09,07:17:06] setup.exe: [2] ISetupComponent::Pre/Post/Install() failed in ISetupManager::InternalInstallManager() with HRESULT -2147467259.
[05/05/09,07:17:07] WapUI: [2] DepCheck indicates Windows Installer Patch Registration Fix for .NET Framework 3.5 (x86) is not installed.

Any help?

As an update, I have uninstalled all other versions of .NET Framework through Add Remove Programs. Then I found the .NET Framework uninstall tool here

It has completely been uninstalled. I will see if QuickBooks is still tripping. Anyone want to comment about this and get some points ? :)

Thanks, thats a great idea. I'll have some ;-). You can clean the system using CCleaner (www.ccleaner.com) of any temporary internet files and unwanted dlls, etc. That might also help.

Well, in my expert opinion, you should download the cleanup tool from here -

http://cid-27e6a35d1a492af7.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/Blog_Tools/dotnetfx_cleanup_tool.zip 

And don't forget to reinstall it again afterwards...

;D
