I am having trouble with both Windows Updates saying I need updating & Secuina stating that my .NET Framework topics above are all at a yellow seurity threat.

(KB2656351) did fail at one time to install. So I used the Microsoft Fix-It to try and correct the problem. I didn't notice any changes so I did a manual download from Microsoft Support and picked the 64bit install and installed it manually. The problem still is not resolved.

I am citing the following thread:

ALL ARE AT A YELLOW THREAT LEVEL
=====================================

1.) Does this article apply to my situation?

2.) If yes, from what I could tell in the article, the clean-up tool, is NOT for Windows 7? Is this correct? Even though you cited Windows 7 at the beginning of the paragraph for the history background.

a.) Will this tool work for Windows 7?

3.) Or...Should I do a Revo Uninstaller of the .NET frameworks as cited in your thread in the order you mentioned? Or can I uninstall them in order from 2.4?

a.) This sounds like the easiest solution?

4.) If this article does or does not apply to me, what is the step by step solution?
