I'm trying to get rid of unnecessary items on the HDD; can I delete the following safely?

Microsoft.NET framework 2.0 service pack 2
Microsoft.NET framework 3.0 service pack 2

I have Microsoft.NET framework 3.5 SP1

As far as I know you have to keep the old versions as some programs may not work without them.

not sure exactly what it does but i do know a vast majority of up to date hardware and software require minimum of net framework 2.0

Not every application is forward compatible with newer versions of NET framework.

So YES you should keep the old versions.
