I've got the same scenario on both my old/current XP Home and new/replacement (most likely going back) XP Pro laptop.
Add/Remove Programs lists these two things:
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Hotfix (KB928366)
When I go to Windows Update, it shows that I successfully installed this:Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, Version 1.1 Service Pack 1 (KB928366)
So I'm guessing that's the same as the Hotfix listed above in Add/Remove Programs?
But the actual .NET Framework, Version 1.1 Service Pack 1
is not listed in Add/Remove Programs. Is it supposed to be?
I know some people were having issues with this stuff -- so I wanted to make sure I was okay security-wise here (or if I need to do that unintall and reinstall everything scenario). I don't use this .NET Framework stuff (nor know what it's for). I just want to make sure the computer is secure. Thanks!
