I just uninstall it because I do not use this extension and the sites that demand. I'm on Apple Mac OS Snow Leopard and I intend to stop using Microsoft technologies.

2 out of 5: just to have use it on a site and also because the uninstaller is fast and incompatibility with Firefox 3.6.4 beta

Microsoft Support instructions for .NET Framework Assistant removal Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Reiterating the comment left by Paulie-D:

for instructions (by Microsoft) on how to remove this addon, visit this site:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/963707

Straightforward instructions for removing this thing. It was really easy, actually.

I uninstalled it simply because it was slowing my browser down and I don't use oneclick, and therefore don't need it. I'm glad Microsoft has an article on how to remove this... shows they're at least SOMEWHAT considerate.

I don't have anything strong against Microsoft. It would be a hella lot better if one could actually choose to install this thing or not, but... you know, at least they give instructions on how to remove it.

This appalling AddOn is auto-installed with .NET without user approval and uninstall is made difficult on purpose! Microsoft represents itself in its true colours of a malicious software monster.

Tip Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I never had a problem with it, but since i never used it, I followed Fred Flintstone advice and un-instralled it.

Tip:
In XP(&Vista??) it will try to re-install thru your automatic updates. So after you un-install it make sure you add the update for this to your ignore9Hide) list.

I, like Dawn, cannot get rid of this following all of the instructions from both annoyances and from MS as well...I also do not have the *.microsoftdotnet item in my about:config screen..I have disabled the extension until I can figure out how to get rid of it for good & wish I could give it zero stars, but not allowed

How do I get rid of this blasted thing? Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I have followed the tutorials on this site: http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article08-600 using regedit to delete the key at Local Machine, Software, Mozilla, Firefox, Extensions; then deleting the folder at Windows, Microsoft.NET, Framework, v3.5, Windows Presentation Foundation, and STILL, this &*#$(* extension keeps re-installing itself.

I am unable to reset "general.useragent.extra.microsoftdotnet" in my about:config because I do not have it there for some reason. I *think* this is what is causing my issue, as I have now gone through the above linked instructions three times with no success.

Regardless, this is a truly terrible user experience to inflict on your potential customers, Microsoft. You are not winning me back to your software by first installing this add-on without my permission, and then making it such a nightmare to get rid of. (What other software do you have to reghack to get rid of? Unbelievable.) Thanks a lot for wasting my time.

Service Packs Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I uninstalled ver 1.1 (I think) by clicking the uninstall button in the add-ons window. It now shows >Net Framewok Assistant as ver 0.0.0. with an active enable/disable button and a greyed out uninstalled button.

In add/remove programs, the "size" field for Net Framework Assistant 1.1 is blank.

HOWEVER, add/remove programs show Net Frameworks version 2.0 Service pack 2 (185 megs), Net Framework version 3.0 Service pack 2 (179 megs) and Net Framework version 3.5 SP1 (28.5 megs).

Anyone know if these can safely be removed by using add/remove software?

Thanks.

Service Packs Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I clicked the uninstall button for version 1.1 and it uninstalled, I think. It now shows up in the add-ons window as version 0.0.0, with only the "enable/disable" button active.

Add/Remove programs in control panel shows no size for .Net Framework 1.1.

HOWEVER, I have entries for Framework 2.0 Service pack 2 (185meg), Framework 3.0 service pack 2 (179meg), and Framework 3.5 SP1 (28.05 meg).

Anyone know if these can be safely removed using Add/Remove Programs?

Thanks.

Brilliant, when the word MS is used in conjunction with open source software all the kiddies are quick to jump in frothing at the mouth trying to spread the word about how evil Microsoft is. I can't see linux or mac users ever going onto this page, so I deduce that all the commenters are indeed using windows, Congratulations to being total hypocrites, Microsoft's software is clearly good enough for you otherwise. And saying this is a security risk is a bit of a joke, Clickonce was built around security, Yes there are security flaws in everything but I believe crackers are more interested in more common addons such as Flash

Onto the review, helps test with click once deployment brilliantly with no need to switch browsers

Malicious Rated 1 out of 5 stars

If you're looking at this page you might not remember installing this Add-on, because you didn't.

Depending on your Windows Update settings this Add-on is installed quietly and without permission. In my case the Add-on has its uninstall function disabled, and for good measure, all other Add-ons were uninstalled. Your experience may vary, but probably not by much.

This Add-on takes some of the code execution vulnerabilities of Internet Explorer and integrates them into Firefox. The Add-on may also remove NoScript, AdBlockPlus, and other Add-ons to ensure that arbitrary/malicious code is not hindered in any way.

Unless you are specifically using this Add-on (and it is almost certain you aren't and never will) you can (and should) remove this by first using Add or Remove Programs to uninstall .NET framework 3.5, after which this Add-on is downgraded with its uninstall function restored.

Microsoft offers no tool to uninstall the Add-on, and the instructions for removal are so needlessly complex (e.g. registry editing) that they appear to be deliberately written to intimidate users into leaving this Add-on in place.

This is a particularly reckless use of Windows Update to compromise a third-party application and I hope this is not a trend that Microsoft continues.
