I accepted Maurice's post before thanking him, ddmarshall & Mogs for their help. Thanks guys.
Regarding ddmarshall's "which one do I need", I honestly have no idea. All must have come via MS updates. Thanks again.

An extract from a proper "tester" of .Net for home users.

The future release of .NET 4 will be optional

In the quietly posted support article 982320(click the link below to see this article), Microsoft delivered an ominous warning of things to come. "How to temporarily block the installation of the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows 7" indicates that, in the future, .NET 4 will be an optional update.

The good news is that .NET 4 will be smaller than previous .NET versions and should be free of the applications past issues. I'll be first in line to test it and confirm this when the update comes out.

? What to do: Be on the lookout for my future write ups on .NET 4 releases.

This is the authority on .Net if U want to be bored to death:

Aaron Stebner is a source of information but is not working on .Net 4 as can be seen here:
http://blogs.msdn.com/astebner/articles/488032.asp...

There are issues with .Net4 hence my advice - see this from MS.

http://download.microsoft.com/download/B/5/7/B57D2...

I personally do not use Automatic Update and will block this install until I can see a use for it.

If happy can U please lock the thread.
