.NET framework is an application and programming environment.  When a .NET framework gets installed it is generally as a prerequisite to another application.

It is correct that it should start automatically.

Its simple: You have installed Microsoft .NET Framework v4.0.30319
(You installed Visual Studio 2010) or you installed a  modern application that uses this new FrameWork

Make sure the service points to: "C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\mscorsvw.exe"

and that is not a virus

puru1981 - Thanks - I had already been to that link.

sublifer - I believe it got installed during an update/patch.  It was not part of the OS load.

Juliancito - It is pointed to that location.  Not concerned it is a virus.

larkvale - That article probably provides that best explanation (layman) of exactly what NGEN does.  I will use that to justify keeping the service at startup (Automatic).  I am completing the last checks for accreditation of this server and I had never encountered this service.  It is not on my D/C or Exch Servers.
