Network List Service

The Network List Service (netprofm) identifies the networks to which the computer has connected, collects and stores properties for these networks, and notifies applications when these properties change. This service, along with the Network Location Awareness service, enables the display of the status of network connections in the notification area. This service is part of the Network Diagnostics Framework.

This service is installed by default and its startup type is Manual.
