after downloading a BUNCH of long delayed updates for windows 7, two mscorsvw.exe processes popped up in my task manager. the *32 one went away, but the other is still there. I looked it up and read it'll go away once it's done compiling .net framework thingers or whatforth, but it's been quite awhile and it hasn't gone.

It's also odd to me that when I looked this up, several different places had the exact same copy/pasted explenation of what it was and what it was doing, that's a little weird.

Why do you consider it weird...if two sources display the same information?   I would think that would be confirmation of the accuracy of the info, rather than something not to be expected.


In any case, take a look at:








I would not worry about this process being on a system, whether it's supposed to disappear or not.  It's a valid Windows process.

It's weird cause last time I saw a process that people insisted was a normal windows process, with the same word for word copy/pasted explanation on several websites, it turned out to be some nasty malware in disguise.

It's gone away on its own now though, so I think it's fine
