I've received this update and don't get it, I have a Firefox Browser,
but would not have known that this update had anything to do with
the browser, . . . as there is more information here;

An update rollup is available for the .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and for the .NET Framework 2.0 SP2 in Windows XP and in Windows Server 2003

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/982524

Ms.NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and NET Framework 2.0SP2 for Windows Server 2003
and Windows x86(KB982524)
16.9 MB

Anybody have a sense of why MS has sent this to me ?

Where did you find this and how is Firefox involved?

Microsoft doesn't "send" out anything except through Windows Updates.

Updating the .NET framework is important. If it came through Windows Update, let it install. Otherwise, I would be suspicious...

I can only say that this came as regular update from Windows, I did not install it as of yet,
at least I don't believe I did, per recent search for (KB982524), I declined it and it apparently disappeared from the notification bar.

I just thought it was a little late for an update to mention SP1, . . and rejected it, but as far as I know this would have been generic, meaning, . . it should have been issued to everyone with WXP ? I suppose.

So just out of curiosity have you NOT updated to SP3?

To be blunt, this is kind of a non issue. In about 2 weeks it won't matter because Microsoft won't be sending you ANY updates if you are still on SP2.

Note: Oh, and Jove? I totally agree. I'd rather be fishing too. I don't know why that hit me just now, maybe because I HAVEN'T fished in many years. Just thinking about fishing right now makes my heart hurt...... :thumbsup:

You can't really call it living if you can't take the time to fish can you? I hate living in the big city.............
