I uninstalled/reinstalled .NET framework client profile because updates failed to install manually and automatically. My scan says it still needs an update but when I "download solution" it says No Important Updates Available.

It highly unlikely a home user will require .NET Framework 4 for a very long time hence it is an optional download offered by MS.

If in the future it is required it will either be installed by the programme requiring it or U will be informed by a "pop up" notice.

On that basis, I would completely uninstall .NET Framework 4.

A full rescan with PSI should give the all clear.

If U insist on keeping it type .NET Framework in the Forum Search Box. It will reveal all problems users have had & some fixes.

Hello.
This link and Maurice Joyce's post within will give some background to .NET problems :-http://secunia.com/community/forum/thread/show/424...
Depending on what Operating System you're using....here are the arrangements for the .NET versions:-


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
I have it on good authority that .NET4 should not be required.
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 procedure 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,

Post crossed.

Thanks. I like the "don't need it" solution but do I need an older version or none at all? My other PC, a 5 yr old Win XP, has versions 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 on it. Since I have no idea what it does I have to wonder if they are needed or not.

Leave everything but version 4 alone. .NET does not work like other programmes - they are dependant.

Once U uninstall .NET 4 just run a full PSI scan & U should be OK.
