mscorsvw.exe

Mscorsvw.exe is a process that is used to precompile Microsoft .NET framework assemblies in the background. It can appear in the Task Manager after installation of .NET or an application that uses the framework, and can consume up to 100 percent CPU usage. The mscorsvw.exe process should precompile high-priority assemblies within five to ten minutes; otherwise, it will run as low priority and defer to other processes.
