| iFrmewrk.exe is a process associated with the Intel PRO/Set Wireless softwareand provides additional configuration options for these devices. This program is non-essential process to the running of the system, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems. Craig|
| Intel WiFi system bar icon . After killing this process, system bar icon disappear. WiFi still functioning wine. This process use much CPU too. EstoniaMan|
| It's constantly taking up 40% of CPU and 38M of memory on my laptop |
| On my system it uses approx 95% of CPU. I have never seen it END the processing. Although it has something to do with Wi-Fi I do not know what and appears to have no positive affect, only negative. I rate it dangerous as nothing else can be done until you FORCE the process to end. Quentin Feduchin|
| I found this process running on a machine infected with a Vundo Trojan virus. Check you LSA providers with Sysinternals "Autoruns" and remove iframe providers if found. See also: Link Noonz|

| this program will take ~2-5% of computer as well as ~5mb of ram, if much more probably a virus. (may have something to do with icon in the bottom left) It is definitely not vital, so feel free to delete it, and save some of that cpu prossesing power!! koma|
| Although the statement above says "Stopping or removing this program will not adversely affect the operation of your network card", I found this to be ABSOLUTELY WRONG! Unchecking this process on/from the startup menu on my Dell Inspiron E1505 Laptop caused my built-in Intel Wireless Card to be unable to automatically, or manually, connect to my home WiFi network. The Intel Wireless icon also disappeared from the lower-right taskbar. I would strongly suggest NOT removing or inactivating this process if you want to be able to connect your computer via its WiFi card. MikeFinkle|
| I just use the Windows wireless management service so I disabled thgis in the services console with no adverse effects. It got rid of the annoying system tray icon! |
| I play a lot of online games and use a program called GameBooster that shuts down unnecesary programs temporarily. I checked this one off and nothing adverse seems to happen. Carl|
| hasn't caused me any problems... Sumx!|
