When my Windows boots up, I get a ".NET Runtime Optimization Service v2.0.50727_X86" notification popup from the task bar.
I am not very computer literate when it comes to specific issues, such as this, so if you would, kindly tell me what the heck this service is affiliated with and why it finds "hardware" (no new hardware installed)? Does this service have anything to do with the .NET Passport service in MSN? Can I uninstall this service without compromising my OS?
Thanks in advance for your time, patience and response.
