Version 1.0 which is part of a normal XP installation is adequate for 
most software, but a few applications (Sharp Reader for example) only 
work if version 1.1 is installed.
unless you really need such applications I think that it is best to leave 
things alone.  I have heard of systems which, like my own, are set to go 
straight to the desktop at boot up requiring the log on step after 
installing version 1.1.   There may be a way round this, but I have not 
taken the risk.
