What are they and what do they do? I never seen them before. Is it Dr. Watson? And why would it be running? I have not had a blue screen in a while.

The System Event Notification Services can send notifications to keep applications informed of network status and it is useful to ensure that applications work well in mobile scenarios. There are various ways to subscribe to SENS notifications. See Accessing System Power and Network Status Using SENS..

DWTRIG20.EXE is located in the C:\Program Files\Common FIles\Microsoft Shared\DW folder along with DW20.EXE (Microsoft Application Error Reporting) and DWDCW20.DLL (Microsoft Event Reporting Disk Cleanup Wizard).

Should this thing stay installed or even there? Or should I remove it?

That depends if you have a need to track system events related to Windows logon, network connection status, power changes, bandwidth, etc. Using SENS, an application can be notified when network connectivity changes, when available power decreases, when a user logs on/off or when there are changes in cache transmissions and bandwidth. SENS notifies COM+ of these events, which assigns them to any subscribing application (COM+ Event System subscribers).

The connectivity functions and notifications of SENS are especially useful for applications written for mobile computers or computers connected to high latency local area networks which help to optimize the application's operation based on those conditions.

I never used the service myself so I'm not sure what kicked it in if you never encountered the startup before.
