This came up in another thread. It is only required for programming. If this doesn't apply to you then it is safe to delete.

yes you can delete it if you so wish

its nothing to do with a virus

I assume you updated all your "windows updates" and the .net was installed

i agree with the was installed via windows update and is not much use to the average user and can be safely deleted if you so wish.

i have left it as it doesnt pose a security risk or do any harm that i know of.
