I nocticed on my PC upstairs (has Windows XP Pro) that on the Windows Update, I updated to .Net Framework 2.0: x 86...but on my laptop downstairs (has Windows XP Home Edition), this update did not appear on Windows Update...should I go to microsofts website and manually d/l it...I really don't even know what .Net framwork is, but when I read desciption it had said somethings about improved caching, performance enhancement, etc...right now on my laptop I have .Net Framwork 2.0 (just without the x86)

Could you explain what .Net Framework does and if I should go to microsoft.com and update it?

X86 refers to working within a 32 bit environment....if you are using any appliactions that utilize ASP then you should update manually to 2.0....also graphics cards that are not integrated with the mobo MAY utilize NETFRAMEWORK....I HIGHLY RECOMMEND updating for security purposes...NET FRAMEWORK is full of holes!

so what about 2.0:x86, should I uninstall 2.0 and then install that x86 version?

BTW don't know if it matters, I've got XP Home Edition, my upstairs PC has XP Pro...

Monkey..dont let the (x86) confuse you...it refers to working within a 32-bit enviornment as opposed to a 64-bit environment...thats all...so if your using a 64 bit operating system (x86) would NOT work...thats it...it will be fine on WinXP HOME.
