Windows 7: .NET runtime optimization service

05 May 2012   #1

.NET runtime optimization service

I have a Critical Event in Applications. The faulting application is mscorsvw.exe. During a search of my computer I found a duplicate of the file in in the same path, the only difference was the size.

Upon trying to open each of the two files, I discovered that neither would open and both are application files. Looking at Properties I discovered the the files are the .NET Runtime Optimization service. Upon looking in Services, I discovered that .NET Runtime Optimization is not mentioned..

My question is: how to fix the application error?

All assistance will be appreciated.

Windows Update released some .NET updates just the other day. Have they been applied yet? If not force an update by going to Control Panel / Windows Update / Check for updates.

There were four updates for .NET and I installed them all. Do you think that will fix the problem and answer my question?
