.NET Framework Cleanup Tool 2015.12.18
Software Product Description
There are a couple of very important caveats that you should review before using this tool to remove any version of the .NET Framework from your system:
The .NET Framework cleanup tool supports removing the following products:
Not all of the above products will appear in the UI for the .NET Framework cleanup tool on every operating system. The cleanup tool contains logic so that if it is run on an OS version that includes the .NET Framework as an OS component, it will not offer the option to clean it up. This means that running the cleanup tool on Windows XP Media Center Edition or Tablet PC Edition will not offer the option to clean up the .NET Framework 1.0, running it on Windows Server 2003 will not offer the option to clean up the .NET Framework 1.1 and running it on Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 will not offer the option to clean up the .NET Framework 2.0 or the .NET Framework 3.0.
When choosing to remove any of the above versions of the .NET Framework, the cleanup tool will also remove any associated hotfixes and service packs. You do not need to run any separate steps to remove the service pack(s) for a version of the .NET Framework.

Pros: None. Should be needed if Microsoft had a clue about their own installers and un-installers!
Cons: Does not work in all situations. Most situations actually.
Other Thoughts: Written by Microsoft...
Why do we need it in the first place?
Because Microsoft has no clue how their software works (or doesn't) anymore! They have a lot of water over their head! A bad platform can never get better. It can olny get worse!
