If you have it, better update it.

It's something to need to run programs written in that language. It doesn't come with Windows, as far as I know, so somehow you must have installed it. I was surprised myself to see the update, frankly speaking, but I didn't distrust it, and it didn't give errors.

such as my three IBM machines IBM updates depend on .net to work. That's the only reason I use it. If you have no dependencies, uninstall it.

How do you know if you have any dependencies? Don't know. Maybe you'll get an error message or such.

In Control Panel, Add/Remove, you'll see what versions you've got.

With me, I see Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1, 2.0, 3.0. But I don't have 3.5, and as long as I don't need it, I won't download it from http://www.microsoft.com/Net/Download.aspx

Ok, Kees, I have removed everything but 1.1 and every thing works fine so far. It probably means that I didn't nees all that stuff, plus, I freed about 350mb. Still, can't figure out how I got them in the first place and even more interesting on the same day.

Thanks a lot.
