I have an HP Pavilion DV6 Laptop with an AMD 3510MX APU, running Win 7 Premium 64-bit.

Three security updates for Microsoft Framework ver. 3.5.1 appeared while updating Windows today, but don't think this version is installed and see just one update for this Framework; maybe a mistake on my part.

I do have Framework 4.0 installed, and will install these updates of course, but am curious about offered updates for software that doesn't appear to be on my laptop?

Windows 7 comes with .NET 3.5.1

Look in c:\windows\\framework - there should be a v3.5 folder.

This built-in version of .NET won't appear in the main add/remove programs list - you must click the "Turn Windows Features on or Off" link in the navigation pane. – Fopedush Jan 8 '13 at 22:46

@Tom Not at all sir. I do this for a living. And I had to go look it up myself. It's just not something I need to know on a daily basis. Nobody does. :) Also, I've done worse. Heck I've forgotten worse. – Mark Allen Jan 8 '13 at 23:13
@Tom: You can accept the answer and "close" it yourself. – Karan Jan 9 '13 at 0:09
