I was wondering if it was necessary for me to retain any/all of the MS Net Framework programs/updates on my system. I do not seem to have any programs that need it. I recently uninstalled .Net Framework 4.
It is in broad terms important and in some cases vital to retain some of them.
Indeed some cannot be removed as they are inherent to the Operating system and installed when the operating system is installed.
That is why, if you go to Add/Remove programs you will NOT see on the list some of the Net Framework installations.
Did you uninstall Net Framework 4 using Add/remove programs.

Establish a restore point before you use the Tool.
The tool is here on this linkhttp://blogs.msdn.co...28/8904493.aspx
ENSURE you select the correct entry when using the tool.
As Neil Jones
as so correctly said
and indeed as I have said a number of times on your other threads,
It does no harm if you leave it be.
providing you have used the correct procedure for uninstalling - ie: the programs OWN uninstaller OR the Add.Remove programs in Control Panel and NOT simply deleted the program folders and files, then UNLESS you experience problems attributable to the remaining fragments of the program - LEAVE IT ALONE.
It will NOT do any harm, but your constant search, albeit with the best of intentions to find and remove such fragments is in my opinion a receipe for CAUSING problems.
In relation to your second query re REVO - I have NO idea. - except is your system time and date correct
