    NET 4 Patches - still a no-go?

    "Skip .NET 2 and .NET 4 updates again "
    This article appeared in the Window's Secrets August edition with several patches listed in the "Skip" section. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on my Toshiba Satellite A505 which is a 64bit system. I am 'holding' on not installing 2 of these patches for my system. KB2468871 and KB2533523. Both are .NET4 Framework patches listed as being for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2 for x64-based Systems. Should I continue to 'hold' on these 2 patches or should I (and can I) delete them? (and how would I delete them? I have never seen a way to do that)

    These updates continue to remind me that they are there.

    Any suggestions on this?

    Barb, Good morning (here). Haven't seen you in a while.

    You would not delete them, but if you right click on the patch you can choose to hide it so it will not be offered again until you inhide it.

    If you already have .NET 4 installed, I recommend you install the patches.

    Well, Joe, now I have to ask a silly question.... how do I know if I have .NET 4 installed?

    I would think that MS would take heed and offer new patches that would not cause so much trouble. I will wait and hide them cause I do not wish to see that little message constantly popping up. Thanks Ted!

    If you go to Control Panel, Programs and Features. You can see the .net framework listed on installed apps. Click on View installed updates link on left side of window to see the installed updates.

    If you are offered an update to .NET 4 then .NET 4 is already installed.
