One of the computers here (maybe two computers) have Windows Updates for .NET Framework version 2.0, 3.0, 3.5, and 4.0 available to download and install, which I guess, means that those VERSIONS are also currently installed on the computer. (I'll need to check this in Control Panel). Are they all necessary? Could or should we uninstall all but the latest version (4.0)?

(Two laptop computers, Windows Vista s.p. 2)

EDIT: I had a chance to check. I find installed on MY laptop, .NET Framework 3.5 S.P.1, and .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile. I do not then understand the available Windows Updates for Security Update for Microsoft .NET Framework, 2.0 SP2, 3.0 SP2, 3.5 SP1, 4.0. I have no idea which choices to make and no idea if Microsoft Windows Update is giving wrong available updates offered.

You may need all those versions as different programs can call for different .NET versions.
