Cannot uninstall .net 3 beta

P: n/a
I am trying to install Windows Home Server Connect on my laptop and the
install falls over with a message that I have to unintall components (WinFX,
Indigo etc) of .Net 3 Beta. I have successfully installed WHS Connect on
four other PCs with no problems. I DON'T have this on my laptop, and it
doesn't appear in the Add/Remove Programs list. Also when I try to install
..Net 2 (having already uninstalled that) I get the same error. I have tried
deleting all .Net registry keys but still no joy. Is there a way of finding
and removing this "hidden" software?
