Let me fix it myself

To resolve this problem yourself, follow these steps:
  1. Locate the C:\inetpub\monitoring\web.config file and make a backup copy of it.
  2. Open the C:\inetpub\monitoring\web.config file with Notepad to edit it.
  3. Locate the SERVICES_TO_IGNORE line in the file. It will look like this:
    <add key="SERVICES_TO_IGNORE" value="SysmonLog" />
  4. Edit this line to add the text ;clr_optimization_v4.0.30319_32 which is the reference to the Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN v4.0.30319_X86 service as shown below.
    <add key="SERVICES_TO_IGNORE" value="SysmonLog;clr_optimization_v4.0.30319_32" />
  5. Save the C:\inetpub\monitoring\web.config file and refresh the performance report in the SBS Console.

More Information

The behavior of the Microsoft .NET Framework NGEN v4.0.30319_X86 service not running even though it has an automatic startup type is normal for this service. If there is nothing for it to do it stops itself automatically.
