This service processes software installation, removal and enumeration through Group Policy. This is a valid MS service.
You should be able to locate the file c:\windows\system32\appmgmts.dll

I have Vista SP2 32 bit and I can see that file.
You may want to do a repair install as mentioned here : http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/88236-re...tall-vista.html
