Hello, I just updated my Windows XP OS to Service Pack 3. Don't know what has happened, but when mscorsvw.exe starts to run (observed in Windows Task Manager / Processes) about 10-15 minutes after start-up, my computer will immediately shut down and reboot...again and again! I have now place that process in my SpyHunter's blocked items list and the computer seems to be running fine now. Any thoughts on what may have happened? Or what now happens (or doesn't happen!) with that process blocked? SpyHunter says the path is C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\mscorsvw.exe Regards, Knock

If you have no software dependent on Net framework then a simple solution is to uninstall it.

Sorry, can not give you a list of dependent software. It would be very long and almost impossible to be sure of knowing\listing them all.

Thx Thunder2,

I don't know anything about Net framework dependent software. So, I'll just keep this process "blocked" for awhile and see if there is anything that doesn't run.

That is a very workable solution.

FWIW: My experience is that...any program/driver that requires MS.NET to work properly...will always let the user know that install of such is required.

I suspect that your version of Net became damaged, but that's just based on the fact that many programs/functions which have previously worked properly...malperform only when key files may have become damaged.

That is true. But only if it is not already installed.

If the OP has Windows updates set to auto and has d\l`d and installed all of them then he has it whether he need`s it or not. I would hesitate to just uninstall it since we do not know if any of his installed programs require it.
