.NET Framework Cleanup Tool
Fully uninstall the .NET Framework

The .NET Framework Cleanup Tool is a free portable tool which quickly removes the version of the .NET Framework you select from a PC.

This is generally a dangerous thing to do and likely to break a host of applications and cause more harm than good, but if you're sure .NET is corrupted on your PC, and repairs, reinstalls and every other troubleshooting step has failed then it just might save your life.

If you're determined to go ahead, it's all very easy. Download the cleanup tool, unzip and launch it (the program is portable, no installation is required). Then choose the version of the .NET Framework that you'd like to remove, click Cleanup Now and it'll be properly removed for you.

The .NET Framework Cleanup Tool supports the following Framework products:

  • .NET Framework – All Versions
    .NET Framework – All Versions (Tablet PC and Media Center)
    .NET Framework – All Versions (Windows Server 2003)
    .NET Framework – All Versions (Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008)
    .NET Framework – All Versions (Windows 7)
    .NET Framework 1.0
    .NET Framework 1.1
    .NET Framework 2.0
    .NET Framework 3.0
    .NET Framework 3.5
    .NET Framework 4
    .NET Framework 4.5
    .NET Framework 4.5.1
    .NET Framework 4.5.2
    .NET Framework 4.6
    .NET Framework 4.6.1
    .NET Framework 4.6.2
    .NET Framework 4.7

While this can be a life-saver, the author says that the removal process will strip out shared Registry keys required by other Framework versions, so you'll need to be prepared to reinstall all of these (not just the one you're removing). Check the tool's home page for more details.

Verdict:

The .NET Framework Cleanup Tool is an excellent way to repair a corrupted .NET setup, but it can also be dangerous - this isn't for novices. Don't use the program until you're sure you understand all the issues, and are ready to reinstall every version of .NET currently on your PC

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build 1709

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows - Fall Creators Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10? The latest release brings back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1607 which is the August 2016 Anniversary Update.
