    I'm running Windows 7 home. I'm getting tired of the Microsoft.Net Framework updates that take forever to download and install.

    Do I need Microsoft.Net Framework?

    What for?

    Can I uninstall it?
    Thanks

    You don't need it unless you have applications installed that need it, and even then usually if an application needs it, it will prompt to install it during it's setup. The reason why there is so many as because as a Microsoft developer you use Visual Studio to write your applications, and when you write an application using the .NET Framework you pick which framework to use depending on what your app needs or what version of the language you're writing in the application you use is. (this is why you see so many different versions of the framework itself). Windows often comes with a certain version of the .NET Framework built in as well.

    I hope that answers your question.
