Did you try going to the Control Panel, finding "Turns Windows features on or off", and finding "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1" in the list?

There is no such item in the list.

The relevant ones in the list are:
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Extended
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Multi-Targeting Pac
There is no item related to .NET version 3.5.

Are you looking in "Turn Windows features on and off" or in "Programs and Features" at the general list of programs that can be uninstalled? The two are very very different, although nearby each other.
