Hello.
If you scroll down to Maurice Joyce's post on the thread with the following link, you'll find some explanation/background to .NET problems :-
http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/424...
Since then there have been further updates; and depending 'pon what OS you're using, here are the current arrangements, when fully patched.


WINDOWS 7
2.0.50727.4955
3.0.4506.4926
4.0.30319.1

VISTA SP2

2.0.50727.4209
3.0.4506.4037
4.0.30319.1

XP SP3

2.0.50727.3618
3.0.4506.2152
4.0.30319.1

When updating Microsoft Applications, it is a good idea to keep in mind that some Microsoft Updates do not "kick in" until after a reboot. Therefore, it is recommended to try following this proceduce when installing Microsoft Updates:

1) Check Microsoft Update, install all security-related patches
2) Reboot
3) Repeat step 1, repeat step 2 if anything was installed at this step
4) Run a full rescan with the PSI

Hope the foregoing is of some help....regards,

I've windows 7 with dot.net 2.0.50727.4955; but PSI means it is not secure... I can not install a newer patch...

I've installed Windows 7 + updates and in parallel Office 2007. By this doing the Office setup did a rollback for the .Net installation. I had to reinstal Office 2007 after rebbot. Now PSI shows me the .NET version 2 in the current patch level but as unsecure component???

U should not be having issues with .Net & Windows 7.

From the Action Centre>Open Windows Update>View Update history - have U got KB2416471 installed correctly?

If this does not quickly resolve the issue I would create your own Thread. This thread is dealing with .Net issues with Windows XP - tagging on Windows 7 problems can cause confusion.
