Microsoft .Net Framework is a programming infrastructure created by Microsoft for building, deploying, and running applications and services that use .NET technologies, such as desktop applications and Web services. i.e. Its a platform to develop console, windows as well as web applications ......
The .NET Framework contains three major parts:
1) Common Language Runtime: A runtime environment that manages the execution of .NET program code and provides services such as memory and exception management, debugging and profiling, and security. The CLR is a major component of the .NET framework.

2) Framework Class Library(FCL): The collective name for the thousands of classes that compose the .NET Framework. The services provided by the FCL include runtime core functionality (basic types and collections, file and network I/O, accessing system services, etc.), interaction with databases, consuming and producing XML, and support for building Web-based and desktop-based client applications

3) ASP.NET : ASP.NET is used to create Web pages and Web services and is an integral part of Microsoft's .NET vision
