This morning I thanked Anthony Wells in another thread and said I was now back to 100%.
Huh! I spoke too soon!!!. I have a typical Friday afternoon issue - I've been having some problems with my new Live Mail account - stuff not getting sent. So I looked at the current 'Live Mail' thread to compare notes.
There was a link there to the Microsoft Update Centre, which I followed. That told me I had 16 optional updates- 9 for software and 7 for hardware so I installed them. (The Updates window said it had installed 18, not 16!)
I
rebooted and rescanned - just MS .Net Framework v1.1.4322 needed sorting.
The MS Yellow Shield icon was showing - this took me back to the MS Update Centre. There were now 5 critical updates showing, just a few minutes after there were no criticals.

So I installed these. Rebooted & Rescanned.

Now there are two issues:
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.x 1.1.4322.2032
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\aspne t_wp.exe
and
Microsoft .NET Framework 3.x 3.0.4506.2152
C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v3.0\Windows Communication Foundation\SMSvcHost.exe
I have already followed the "Download solution" but am now going round in circles.
Help, please!

I've just been back to Microsoft Updates. It tells me I have a critical update for .Net Framework 1.
Again, just a few minutes after I installed all the other criticals. I'll see what effect this has i.e. I'll reboot and then rescan. Then go back to WIndows Updates.

But are Microsoft really issuing so many updates this afternoon?

Hi taffy.....I've just had one Definition update today....but your're using XP SP3....when you scan for updates, you get the ones you need....not necessarily what everybody else has.....that's the way that I've understood it to work.

Wotcha, Mogs!

Just scanned and now 100%! Touch wood.

Control Panel says I have four .Net Framework programs:

1.1 (apparently empty)
2.0 SP2 183 MB
3.0 SP2 179 MB
3.5 SP1 28.04 MB

Do I need all these? What do they do anyway?

Bah humbug! Have a great weekend, Mogs. (Cardiff City --->>> Premier league!)

PS Mogs - I've answered my own question via a simple Norton Search! Yes - I can have all of these programs, per

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/829019

Mind you, this mentions .NET Framework 4! I can't suggest that Secunia add it to their list of programs because I've no info. Perhaps they will?

The Microsoft .NET Framework is a software framework that can be installed on computers running Microsoft Windows operating systems. It includes a large library of coded solutions to common programming problems and a virtual machine that manages the execution of programs written specifically for the framework. The .NET Framework is a Microsoft offering and is intended to be used by most new applications created for the Windows platform.


Here's another from Wikipedia !!

Here is the background from one of my fixit threads.

.NET FRAMEWORK PROBLEMS
=======================

A bit of background information worth knowing before trying to fix .NET issues with Windows XP,Vista & Windows 7

1. .NET Framework 1.0, 1.1 and 2.0 are all side-by-side versions that can be installed and uninstalled without affecting the others. This means that if you are running into an issue in .NET Framework 2.0, for example, you do not necessarily need to remove .NET Framework 1.0 and 1.1 in addition to removing 2.0.

2. .NET Framework 3.0 is an add-on that requires .NET Framework 2.0 to be present as a prerequisite. If you have .NET Framework 3.0 installed, you will not be allowed to uninstall .NET Framework 2.0 until you first uninstall .NET Framework 3.0.

3. .NET Framework 3.5 is an add-on that requires .NET Framework 2.0 SP1 and .NET Framework 3.0 SP1 to be present as prerequisites. If you have .NET Framework 3.5 installed, you will not be allowed to uninstall .NET Framework 3.0 SP1 or 2.0 SP1 until you first uninstall .NET Framework 3.5.

4. .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 is an add-on that requires .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and .NET Framework 3.0 SP2 to be present as prerequisites. If you have .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed, you will not be allowed to uninstall .NET Framework 3.0 SP2 or 2.0 SP2 until you first uninstall .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

.NET 1 & 1.1 are very old & it is highly unlikely U will have a programme that "calls" on it to work. It can be safely uninstalled in the knowledge that if it is later required they can be re installed as Standalone items.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++

If you are having trouble installing .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5, I recommend trying to install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. It will install .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 and 3.0 SP2 behind the scenes, and these versions contain additional fixes not in the original 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5 releases. Plus, 3.5 SP1 will automatically uninstall any older versions of 2.0, 3.0 or 3.5 that are on your system, so you can save some time by not trying to install a version of .NET Framework that 3.5 SP1 is going to uninstall during its install process.

Link is here:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?fa...

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++
The latest version of .NET framework 3 is different among the various versions of Windows.

Windows XP: V3.0.4506.2152
Windows Vista: V3.0.4506.4037
Windows 7: V3.0.4506.4926
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++
There is a last resort but read the details before embarking on the action described.

NET FRAMEWORK CLEANUP TOOL FOR XP & VISTA

The link to a .Net Framework Clean Up Tool is here:

I would STRONGLY advise U do not install .Net 4. MS will almost certain make this an OPTIONAL install.

If this post has solved your problem could you please select the ACCEPT option. This will lock the thread and stop you & I from receiving unnecessary update emails.
