Microsoft NET Framework 4.7.1

Q: Microsoft NET Framework 4.7.1

Hello. I just noticed that the exact same day that my laptop began running haywire (the first week in February), a program titled "Microsoft NET Framework 4.7.1" was uploaded to this laptop. Since that day, my Windows Updates have been stuck and won't load. I definitely need to clear some disk space because my C Drive is almost full, but could this program also be causing problems? Should I delete it or replace it or fix it somehow, or would that be a really bad idea?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi I tried twice today to download and install the following updates, Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847) x86. it is a large update taking approx 30mins to download the 248MB package. Both times it got to the end of the download and the next I got was a message saying installation failed. At first I thought it was Comodo BoClean so turned it off the second time but got the same result anyway.
My PC is an AMD Athlon XP2400+, 1GB of RAM running on XP3 and updated via Automatic Updates "notify but do not install". I got a MSN email notification on IE8 RC1 and decided to check my Firewall connection to Microsoft Update, where I was told that the mentioned updates were available and decided to install them though not IE8 at this time.

For real time protection I use Comodo CIS, Comodo BoClean and SpywareBlaster. I switched off BoClean the second time and set CIS to installation mode both times. I cannot see anything else on my PC which could hinder the installation process. In my Add/Remove program list I have Microsoft .NET Framework versions 1.1,1.1 Hotfix, 2.0 Service Pack1, 3.0 Service Pack1, 3.5, Should I uninstall these before installing the latest version or should they all remain on my installed programs?. I would appreciate it if someone could offer some help here as I like to keep my PC up to date.

Hi .Well...let's start with the reason you have MS .NET installed on your system.What applications/drivers do you use which require any version?If you have no such applications...IMO it's not even necessary to install any version of MS .NET on a system. Doing so is a waste of time for those who don't have applications which demand MS .NET.http://forums.techarena.in/customize-xp/866859.htmLouis

I haven't downloaded this update as I have dial-up and it says 26-48 hours to update this. Also, I had to reformat my computer three times with the SP3, even downloading from disk instead of internet - so scared to download Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 and .NET Framework 3.5 Family Update (KB951847) x86 as don't want to have to reformat (and also don't want my computer running for 2-3 days to download).
Are there problems with this download like there were with SP3 (I ended up never being able to have a working computer with SP3)? Do I need this update? Will there be problems if I download from internet, and if not any other ways to update this (for free)?

Like everyone knows how much space .NET Framework takes up on the computer. That's why I wanted to know that I currently have Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Service Pack 2 and Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1. So do I really need both of them or can I uninstall one of them. Or could I uninstall both of them? I really need suggestions because I idn't want to do anything myself thinking I might damage my computer and get into a cantankerous situation. So can I uninstall both of them or either one of them?

Hi .

What version of MS.NET do you have installed? What is the complete error message? I don't see anything that you posted to suggest that Microsoft .NET is the application where the error occurred.

Do you have any of the SPs for that version installed, via critical updates at WinUpdate?

Seems to be a lot of variety for projected causes and cures...I would probably try uninstalling whatever version is installed and then reinstalling it and updating it via the WinUpdate site.

Strictly for purposes of comparison: I reflect 3 entries on Add/Remove Programs: Microsoft .NET 1.1, Microsoft .Net Hotfix, and Microsoft .NET 2.0 SP1.

Have you tried Control-Alt-Delete as a way of closing that screen?

Swifty,

Check out the link below. There is a lot of information about .net there. I figured it would be easier for you to read about it than to try to explain everything about it. As to whether or not you need it, it depends on what you want to do with your computer. Some applications require it. Many users will not need it.

I am using a Sony Vaio that is about 6-7 years old, Vista is Home Premium SP2.
In Control Panel-Programs, i notice that there are two versions of Microsoft .NET Framework installed ( Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 S and Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5.1).

My questions are- are they both necessary? Can I delete the earlier one? Or will deleting the earlier one affect the operation of my older software on this computer?

I am puzzled about what Microsoft .NET Framework is and what it does.

Help is appreciated.

A:Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 S and Microsoft .Net Framework 4.5.1- both necessary?

There's an old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

Although newer frameworks are supposed to be backward compatible, with something that complex it's almost impossible to know if you have a program that depends on a "quirk" of the older framework to run correctly.

It would be similar to deleting a bunch of Dlls without knowing what they are for. With the huge drives these days the space savings is relatively small and you run the risk of introducing problems.

If things are working I'd look elsewhere for files to delete.

Okay, I'm a newbie here but not to computing and I'm getting more and more knowledgeable all the time. But I do run into problems that I sometimes have difficulty finding the answers for. The newest is whether or not I NEED Microsoft's .NET Framework and ASP.Net.

I think I downloaded .net and java both not too long after I bought the computer about a year ago but for the life of me I can't remember why. My OS is Win XP SP2.

This is my first home computer and I really, really don't want to screw it up, but I don't want to have a bunch of stuff on it that is not needed either.

Use Add/Remove Programs...uninstall them in reverse order.Various versions which have different release dates are:NET Framework 1.0 (obsolete)NET Framework 1.1 (obsolete)NET Framework 2.0 NET Framework 3.0NET Framework 3.5 3.5, Service Pack 1NET Framework 4 (beta status, not ready for prime time). Do not consider installing.Note that 3.5, SP1 will include elements of some prior installs, http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...;displaylang=en"Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 is a full cumulative update that contains many new features building incrementally upon .NET Framework 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, and includes cumulative servicing updates to the .NET Framework 2.0 and .NET Framework 3.0 subcomponents."Cumulative means...that it contains all prior updates for prior versions. Contrary to what some believe, I think.In any case...on my system, I only installed 3.5, SP1. But when I installed that, I also installed (as part of 3.5, SP1) updates to 2.0, SP2...3.0, SP2..so I have a bunch of entries in my Add/Remove Programs that relate to those 3 items (sub-items are also reflected in Add/Remove Programs for those items on my system.I don't try to remove those 3 major categories...because they are all part of the same download package. It's not worth my time/attention to worry about whether I could remove them, I know that they are part of Version 3.5, SP1 and I can live with that (since my system functions harmoniously).I don't have any earlier ve...

A:Microsoft.NET Framework.

Here is what I would do, and bear in mind I am not much of an expert. Open your control. Add or remove programs and tick the box to show updates
I would uninstall all netframework updates and then manually go to MS updates and check for Net framework/updates and download them again.
I am guessing there is a corrupt file somewhere.

What is this exactly? I've looked for info's on many websites for explaination but don't really get it...
I've installed this when I was installing this program which can convert movies.
It was PSP video9.

I just want to know if it is SAFE program and what it it and what it does.

Somehow when I turn my computer on it tells me to click on a ''USER'' to log on. It use to be just logged on straight away without asking me to click on the username... How can I skip this? For example how can I log on like before...

Urgent HELP!

Thanks.

...download this & try again - you should not have any trouble installing anything else form MS...

...also, go back to MS Update & run it & reboot, repeat as necessary until it reports no more updates available - you'll probably encounter a bunch more  .net framework stuff plus other stuff...

A:Microsoft .NET Framework

Those are all things you should probably keep. The .net framework is the basis of a great deal of the Windows platform and many, many programs rely on it. The different versions do different things, so you can't just keep the 3.5. The user-mode driver framework could also be in use by any number of programs.

Good ways to greater increase the performance of your computer are to:
Run a disk cleanup utility to get rid of unnecessary files. I like http://ccleaner.com, but there's one built into Windows and accessible via Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup
Run Disk Defragmentor via Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmentor. If you've never done this before, you should do it a few times and it will make a HUGE difference.
You can get a good, free malware scanner from http://malwarebytes.org that will search your system for malicious software
There are some good, free duplicate file finder programs available, too, that will check to see if you have multiple copies of the same files scattered around your system. This isn't usually a huge problem on personal computers, but business computers frequently run into trouble with dup's
I hope that helps! Oh, one other note, it's best to stay away from registry cleaning or repairing software, it frequently does more harm than good. The CCleaner I recommended above has registry cleaning and repairing options, but they are... Read more

I am trying to load "Microsoft.net framework 3.5" on a friends computer running XP. The machine has 2.0 and 4.0 loaded but we want to run picasa on it which says it requires 3.5. The programme downloads (slowly) then goes into "installing" also very slow. When the status bar gets to the end it just sits there. 3 hours so far today. this is my second attempt to install it. Task manager says the programme is running. Any ideas???

I want to use ID Vault but the first thing the install disk wanted to do was install microsoft .net framework.
I googled it and see it's real.
Will it do anything worthwhile for my computer?
Or, is it just a MS gimmick?

If the software requires it, you need it. It's legit
