How to get rid of .NET framework of any version?

    Question

  • Windows Vista 32bits Business + current SP No one application installed which would need the .NET framework. One time in the past there was one application installed which needed .NET. But currently that app is not installed. .NET not selected/installed in Control Panel -> Programs and Functions -> Windows Components .NET related services stopped and disabled permanently. No .NET related items under Control Panel -> Programs and Functions No .NET related items in All Programs menu Windows Update reports a critical update was available for download and installation. It is the .NET 3.5 SP1 or similar, I don't remember it exactly. I wanna to get rid of these security update notifications by removing the .NET frameworks of any version. The absent stuff simply doesn't need any security update. Actually, I want to get rid of the related vulnerability. The famous .NET clean and verification utilities have been applied. No success. Windows still reporting a important .NET update available and to be applied. I don't want to have this .NET 3.5 SP1 because no one on this machine needs this. How to get rid of these: - update notifications - related vulnerability - .NET framework installations of any version

    Do that in Windows Update by hiding anything you don't want installing. But getting rid of the .NET framework may not be a good idea. (?)
