Claim Speed and Space in Windows 7
We all are aware of the official release of Microsoft’s windows 7 Service Pack 1 update. This update was made available to all users via windows update or by using an offline installer. While most of the upgrade went smoothly and some users ran into an embarrassing problem of computer slow down.

This is all because of the two reasons i.e. the unwanted backup files created by windows 7 service pack 1 update and due to the unwanted process named mscorsvw.exe. It may vary from computers to computers that mscorsvw.exe is causing computer slow down. But the backup files is the main cause of computer slow down for the users with low disk space.

Now here are those tricks to claim speed and space in windows 7:

1) To Claim Speed or Stop "mscorsvw.exe"

  • Click Start  >>  CMD  >>  Right click and run as administrator.
  • Now type “c:\windows\microsoft.net\framework\v2.0.50727\ngen.exe executequeueditems" (without Quotes). This command will process all pending work.
  • Now close the command prompt and restart the computer.
  • Now it is done i.e. no mscorsvw.exe process is running in task manager.
