I downloaded the .NET Framework 2.0 64 bit and tried to install in compatibility mode and was informed that the capability was already built into the OS so it wouldn't install.
I uninstalled 3.5.1 from the "Add Remove Windows Components" and reinstalled to try to reset it to no avail.
I'm out of time for today so will just leave it for now as the drivers
seem to be working fine. I will try to wipe the drivers completely later unless there are any other ideas
Other than this the upgrade from Vista Ultimate 64bit went perfectly (as far as I can tell so far, "knock wood")
