After having a great deal of trouble trying to install one of these automatic updates, I decided not to install any further ones of the same type. Now I have a list from SP2 to 4. Can you tell me if they are absolutely necessary. What are they used for? Since refusing to update the first one, my laptop has run perfectly happily for over a year. I don't want to upset the applecart by trying to download them again.

Some programs won't run without certain dot Net Framework apps. Usually if you come across one it will offer you the download.
