Check Add / Remove Programs and see if there are any listings there. If there is remove them.

I try to remove Net Framework 1.1 and it freezes about a 10th of the way through. Then I try to uninstall Net Framework 3.5 SP1 and it gives me the message "A problem has occured when loading setup components. Canceling setup." Then I try to uninstall Microsoft Net Framework 2.0 SP2 and it says "Fatal error occured during uninstallation" Then I try to uninstall Net Framework 3.0 SP2 and it gives the message "The patch package could not be opened. Verify the patch package exists and you can access it." Im lost!!!!

Use a registry cleaner on your system. Ccleaner Slim has a safe one. Net framework versions are not cumulative. If the program you are using requires a certain version then that is the version you need.

Why did you remove all versions anyway? Were you having problems with Net framework?

Get Ccleaner Slim at the link below.

If you have broken registry strings a cleaner can fix them by removing. You can also try running scannow SFC. Google for that term for help. Below is one link.

I used the net cleanup wizard to completely remove it from my system. When trying to reinstall Net Framework 1.1 from both the package from the MS website and the OS Disc, i get to almost the end of the installing process and it just stops completely. On every occasion I view the task manager and see that RegSvcs.exe is consistently taking up 50% CPU usage. When i end the process to stop my computer from crashing, it cancels the installation (installation "rolls back"). Whats the problem with this file?

Why do you stop the process? So what if it is taking 50% of CPU cycles.

well its obvious thats the process that is either not there or is corrupted which is slowing it down and preventing it from properly installing Net Framework 1.1.

It is not obvious to me just based on the CPU cycles.

He did it through Add and Remove programs where there is a known bug with the .NET stuff. That is why they made the Clean Up tool.

It is just a suggestion take or leave it. You have tried every thing else.

yeh ive already used the cleanup tool to remove all versions but when i try to reinstall as i said it freezes right at the end (because its obvious its not going anywhere after I wait for like 10 minutes) and the process RegSvcs.exe is consistently sucking up 50% of my usage. When i end the process everything returns to normal and the installation rolls back.

Have you tried a registry cleaner? Look at response #3.

Also, if you are performing these tasks in Windows standard mode there may be a program still trying to use netframe.

Try booting to Safe mode with networking and do it there.

Ccleaner slim has a safe registry cleaner as one of the modules included in the program. Get it at the link in #3.

Just to be safe, when asked if you want to create a backup do so. I usually save any backups to the desktop where they are easy to locate, should you need it. I have NEVER needed one. After you are sure you don't need the backup just delete it.

The cleaner module is excellent. I use it daily.

Tried registry cleaner, picked up a few things but didn't fix my problem. I tried safe mode said "fatal error occurred during installation" message and then closed. Any other ideas?

thanks for all the help guys. I managed to fix the problem by running a repair installation of windows and deleting some corrupted files and registry values like you recommended. :) 4Ever
