Windows 7: TrustedInstaller (Windows Modules Installer)

28 Feb 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
TrustedInstaller (Windows Modules Installer)

Morning all!

This is a quirky nuisance to me. Not causing any problems, just occasionally a waste of time.

TrustedInstaller (win mod update service) will fire up for no good reason, other than to just be ready if needed.

Example, Check For Updates to just see if there ARE any, and it launches!

Also after MSE definition updates.

My peeve is the time it just sits there, doing nothing (I have traced it using Procmon), until the idle timeout of ~10 mins is up. Then it will clear the CBS log entries from pending renames, etc.

Does anyone know how to change the idle timeout value? It just irks me to have to wait for it to finish, especially if I need to reboot.

Any thoughts?
