I want to delete windows .net framework from my computer.

I am not a gamer nor a programmer.

I only use my PC for internet access, email, music, pictures, cd and dvd viewing and recording.

This is a large program. Do I really need it?

Will deleting it cause any problems or hurt my PC's security?

Several applications are built around .Net framework. If none of your applications need it, you can remove it. I checked on my computer and it uses 185 MB of disk space, which isn't that large. The framework service requires less than 8 MB of memory.

Thanks for the reply.

I am not sure how to determine if any of my programs require .net framework.

Any suggestions?

Remove it and you'll see what no longer works.

Thats what I would normally do.

I thought I would be a little more careful this time as I have cost myself a lot of wasted time in the past by quickly doing something stupid.

Your suggestion is right in line with my normal thought process.

Thanks again.

If I were you I'd leave it alone as a lot of newer applications require .net.
