Was just looking at my Control Panel and noticed this icon for Windows CardSpace on there, hasn't been on there before if I remember right. I looked it up on Wiki. to see what it did and didn't understand a thing that it said.
Can someone tell me, in plain English, what the hell this does and if it's any good or should I delete it?

Thanks.

Windows CardSpace is a new feature of Microsoft Windows that helps you better manage and control your personal information and helps shield you from many forms of phishing attack as well as some common malware attacks.
