    Opps I forgot to give the other 2 choices of No, I don't have Java installed or no I don't have .NET installed. Can a moderator delete this poll or give me some way of correcting it.

    I actually messed up the survey. I guess I will have to send admin a message asking them to delete it so I can give the 4 options I should have with the survey. No, i'm not writing anything at this point. I'm just curious as to the percent of users that don't have .NET, and Java installed on their machines. In another thread I created I was getting more info as to why some users dislike .NET so much. I use Appguard which I believe is coded in .NET, and its one of my favorite security Apps.

    no to Java and Yes/No to .NET.

    on my Win 7 machine i got rid of .NET 4.0

    but i don't think you can get rid of 3.5.
    i don't see any way to uninstall it so i figure Windows 7 needs it. :)

    Neither here on XP Pro SP3.

    I require neither of them, and noted .NET Framework to be bloatware in the past when I did have it installed. Immediately after adding it I noticed a more sluggish box.

    The only reason I'd consider installing it is for EMET, but most of it's functionality isn't possible on XP/32-bit OS's anyway. And the one thing that is (DEP) is already enabled by default anyway (essential programs/services only). So it's just not worth it for me.

    Do I understand correctly that .NET Framework is bundled/forced upon you with Windows 7? If that's the case, no reason not to use EMET then, considering that OS can also get the full benefit of the program (especially the 64-bit variety).

    Java would have to give me a DARN good reason(s) to use it considering the plethora of nearly perpetual vulnerabilities associated with it. And so far the only thing I noticed it'd do is make it more convenient to add many photos at once to an online album (i.e. Facebook, etc...). I noticed this on a friends PC. Not worth that trade-off to me, I'll just Ctrl+click thank you...

    and considering I don't have a Facebook and don't do social networking anyway, it's really not worth it.

    like i said, there doesn't seem to be any way of getting rid of .NET 3.5

    getting rid of 4.0 is just a matter of uninstalling it from the Add/Remove programs.

    there's nothing i need 4.0 for.
    i'm not even sure i need 3.5, but like i said...

    I have java on one operating system, not integrated into the browser and blocked by default. None of them have .net.

    I still haven't seen a machine without .NET, lots of programs use it, even games!

    However Java is a whole different story, at least in my desktop i do have Java but in my locked down laptop i don't.

    So it would be like this:
    Desktop .NET YES
    Desktop Java YES

    Laptop .NET YES
    Laptop Java NO

    read the comments from your own link:
    apparently, it does not uninstall .NET 3.5 in Windows 7.

    anyway, i don't care too much about 3.5

    i got rid of 4.0 which was enough.
    bloody 4.0 updates took forever to install with Windows Updates. :thumbd:

    i uninstalled the bloody thing and my computer was/is working correctly.
    looks like i did not need it after all because all my apps and programs work.

    Did you try the Turn Windows Features On or Off or the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool?

    I can't read the comments. They don't load here.

    no, i did not try.

    like i said before, i don't really care that .NET 3.5 is there as long as it doesn't get on my nerves.

    like 4.0 did. lol

    Good then. It's not recommended to uninstall or disable it, although it is possible.

    that's what i figured.

    there's no uninstall section in the Add/Remove Programs for .NET 3.5 like there is for 4.0

    which was my clue to leave well enough alone. ;)

    No Java. Period.

    When I used XP last time, I didn't install .NET as I didn't need it at the time. Ever since using Win7 which comes with .NET Framework 3.5.1, I always install the later 4.0 version on a fresh install.

    I don't really 'need' .NET apart from these software that requires it:

    Vodafone Mobile Broadband software (needed to connect to the internet)
    EMET
    Minimem (installed on an old machine, not my primary one)
    PowerBroker Desktops Free Edition (not currently installed on any)

    However, once in a while I do come across a few apps (esp. so-called 'portable' ones) that requires it.

    It's my understanding that it's (.NET Framework) much better implemented on Win7. And considering the usefulness of EMET on top of that, I'd be happy to have it.

    But on an XP system, if you can go without it, I recommend doing so. I once came across a program that required it (Free Studio), and found that by simply using an older version of that program it got around the problem. And the older version is more responsive and does everything the newer one does. And since it doesn't connect to the internet, the lack of any security updates since is moot.

    I have tons of games on my computer, and emulators... and not a single one requires .NET Framework.
