Trusted Installer is the internal "user" account that is active when installing/uninstalling programs. Don't stress about it. It is active ONLY when installing or uninstalling programs.

If you remove it or otherwise disable it, you will no longer be able to install any programs.

Correction:

This comes from Microsoft:

Quote:
Trusted Installer The Trusted Installer is actually a service, not a user, even though you see permissions granted to it all over the file system. Service hardening allows each service to be treated as a full-fledged security principal that can be assigned permissions just like any other user. For an overview of this feature, see the January 2007 issue of TechNet Magazine. The book Windows Vista Security (Grimes and Johansson, Wiley Press, 2007) explores service hardening in detail, including how it is leveraged by other features, such as the firewall and IPsec.
