We've got a Server 2003 R2 box that is running Exchange and we also have our Anti Spam and Anti Virus on here. we have had an issue with the Anti Spam and our suppliers have advised us to uninstall ALL .net framework and re-install them but i'm not sure that this won't affect other programs we have on there.
Is there any way to check what programs use the .net framework on a server ?

Thanks

I don't think so there will be any method or software available which can show us which files are used by what software. But i am sure that if you are using Microsoft's some large application, it definitely affect by removing or reinstalling of .NET framework. Now a days Microsoft creates almost application which are depended on .NET framework. Exchange Server is using .NET framework. if you have not installed much applications on your server, go to Read me file or System Requirements page of the application.

More i would like to suggest you is that if you are aware of applications which are using .NET framework, before removing or reinstalling .NET framework, stop those application's services, then perform the suggested steps from your suppliers.
