.NET framework 3.5 update query

  ex-wirecutter 14:52 31 Jan 2009

I have just downloaded Microsoft update for .NET framework 3.5 as it was labelled high priority .
I noticed however that it has installed a facility called " Preference Counter " , this sounds suspiciously like spyware to me .
Correct me if I'm wrong .

No quite , I was most concerned with the ,
" preference counter " being spyware .

I have noticed a new Icon in Control panel following .Net Framework 3.5 update, called Windows CardSpace. When I try to ooen it I am referred to event viewer, which says "The Windows cardspace Service is too busy to process this request.User has too many outstanding requests". Any ideas?

Not sure how you have it or how you get rid of it though ! Not in my Control Panel. I have XP.

Have just updated to 3.5 and YES, I now have Cardspace..but it works for me. No error message such as John has.
