can i install this? there's this program:

soundcrank. apparently adds lyrics to all your mp3s. i have wanted something like this so that i can view lyrics in my ipod. i downloaded it and it said it needed to install the 2.0 framework. looked it up quickly on wiki. also noticed i have 1.1 installed. went to install the 2.0 and my antivirus software, as it always does, prompted me to decide whether i want to make the registry change. i dont know why but most of those registry change warnings spook me. the specific words in the warnings. the hints at possible misuses, etc. so i didn't go through with it. i want to, though. should i? i just cancelled the install of the 2.0 and then removed it. the 2.0 was bundled with the program, btw.

Adding .Net framework is pretty harmless as far as possible downsides it's just a virtual machine for .Net, kinda like Sun has for Java, a library of functions and such for .Net programmers to use in their apps.

If you're fearful of the .net bundled with the software, I'm gonna guess you can DL it from microsoft.
