I have this on my computer, and it seems to be pretty new under microsoft network inspection. Why would they have to inspect my network other than the regular MS Security Suite?

It's part of Microsoft Security Essentials v2.0 that protects against network vulnerabilities.
If it's causing errors or issues, open MSE and go to:
Settings / Real-time protection / and UNCHECK "Enable network protection against exploits..."

Hi Bigionseternal,

This file has nothing to do with Norton Internet security or the Notification Services Event logging as previously posted, It's part of MSE Network Inspection System...this was a new feature added into MSE V.2. It is functional on Vista and Win 7 - not on Win XP.

Source: (You will note this information is coming from Microsoft as well)

I know you will see the CORRECT information for this file here. Doctordeere had it correct, however, this add to that to give you a complete answer to your question, and to let you know you should not turn if off, if at all possible, except for temporary periods of troubleshooting.
