    You can turn the XPS Viewer on/off through Add/Remove Programs, "Turn Windows Features On And Off", also removing the scan/fax support there should remove the Fax as well. Then when your printer goes to install it will install its own scan/fax (if needed) software.

    Don't worry that you see .NET Framework 3.5 even though you have 4.0 installed in Windows Components, its not a big deal and each framework actually works independently. So apps that require 3.5 use 3.5 and apps that require 4.0 use 4.0, etc. Perfectly normal I would not touch it. Fax might be under Print and Document Services, Windows Fax and Scan.
