First of all, does the typical home user need to install .NET Framework? And, if so, must the versions (1.1, 2.0, 3.0) be instaled in sucession or is it okay to install 3.0 if you haven't installed the earlier versions???

I can't answer for the "typical home user" :thumbsup:.

I do know that certain applications (e.g. my ATI video drivers) require the installation of NET before they can be downloaded from the website. That's the reason I installed it on my systems (I have two ATI cards) and the only reason. I suspect that other apps may also require it for whatever reasons.

I also understand that some game require installation of NET in order to be played (I guess online). I don't game, so I don't know.

Regarding versions, you only need install the latest version, after removing the others via Add/Remove Programs.
