After reading the information on the microsoft support website for this 1.11 driver framework update kb2761494, I still do not know what it means. What does it do and why is it needed? The computer works. What is wrong with the computer that this update will fix? The importance on the MS Update program on the computer says, "Recommended".

NET Framework 1.1 is the oldest active version of MS.NET and most systems do not have it installed or need it. NET Framework 2.0 may also include 1.0 or 1.1 components.

Simply put, if you have 1.1 installed, you need any critical updates to it for security purposes.

As for understanding what an update does...most of us don't "understand" many things about our systems...I don't know why that would be a concern. It's what we do understand...that sllows us to use them for our enjoyment and other purposes.

The name in the Windows Update list was not "NET Framework", but "1.11 driver Framework". To my knowledge, I never took any such "NET Framework 1.11" on the Vista machine. To best I know, none of the program (very few) which I installed are old and none would use any such old NET Framework (just my guess). The computer was bought new in middle of year 2008. The only few programs installed since the buy date are PDF-Xchange Viewer, PenPad driver, Norton 360, Jarte word processor, and Corel Office(a few weeks ago). Any other suggestions or ideas for understanding the update kb2761494?

The Windows Update program on another laptop computer with Windows Vista also showed the same update as available. Because of this, I accepted the kb2761494 on both of these computers. Not sure what to expect from this, but done. (Keithuk, I did not yet read the site you referenced).
