.NET Framework Updates
I am running XP Pro and currently have all 3 versions of .NET Framework on my
computer. All three need to be updated. My question is "Do I need all three
versions?" It is a home computer and I just use it for E-mail, music,
pictures, and looking things up on the inter-net via dial up.

Re: .NET Framework Updates
If you have an application that uses/needs .NET 1.1 then 2.0 and 3.0 are not
to be considered supersets or replacements for .NET 1.x
So if you where to delete version 1.1 then there is a good chance
the application that requires .NET 1.1 will fail.

Each version of .NET is usually installed along with the application that
requires it, so if you have all three versions, then chances are that
somewhere along the way you installed at a minimum 3 applications,
with each of those 3 applications requiring and installing
it's own version of .NET

The olny other way you could have installed .Net is via the
"Optional Updates" listed when using Windows Update.
