    Does anyone know why, after removing all versions of Net Framework,
    and then installing just the 3.0 redistributable package, that NF 2.0
    shows up in the Add/Remove Program list again?

    Can't seem to permanently remove this one?

    No error messages on the uninstall of 2.0, it said it was removed.

    Insalled 3.0 and now 2.0 is magically back...

    Some auto updates for 2.0 are independent of 3.0, there are benefits to 2.0
    that are only available within that version. If you have a genuine reason
    for
    not wanting 2.0 installed you will have to disable automatic updates -
    unwise.

    From second link above:
    "You may have several versions of the .NET Framework installed on your
    computer. Each version of the .NET Framework can co-exist with the other
    versions on the computer."
