"Optimizing computer for best preformance"

Recommended Posts

It's running a program called 'ngen' which pre-compiles the EXE's and DLL's so that they don't have to be re-compiled every time you run the program. This saves memory and improves startup performance.

(Note that this ngen / pre-compiling stuff is specific to "managed" code such as C#. That's why you don't see it employed for most other desktop software, which is ususally written in C++.)

It's "Optimizing performance for your system" - it's optimizing itself, not changing any of your computer settings. There is no need to fear. ;)
