Microsoft .NET framework 2.0 cannot be uninstalled

I had an application that runs on .Net (ACT! 2010) continually crashing.“  Tech support promised me that if I uninstalled .Net 2 and re-installed it, everything would be OK.“  The only problem was, when clicking on the “Remove” button, I get the error message “Microsoft . NET framework 2.0 Service Pack 2 cannot be uninstalled”.

After hours of reading through TechNet articles, forum posts and the like, I found the very simple answer: uninstall .Net 3.5 and 3 first.“  After it’s big brothers were gone, .Net 2 gracefully uninstalled.“  Now anyone want to make me a bet if ACT! will start running again with a clean install of .Net?
