On my Windows 7 PC, trustedInstaller.exe is taking about 25-50% of my CPU - how can I stop it?
I tried asking Windows to stop all automatic updates, but when I reboot the damned thing is back.
P.S. I tried running CMD and then "sfc /scannow"
but I got
> Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.
> Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation
then it stopped.
Should I try to repair Windows? http://forum.thewindowsclub.com/wind...ndows-7-a.html
Okay I went into Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools and managed to stop it from starting when I rebooted. I might need to re-start it again at some point, but at least I got my CPU-time back. [Aside what the heck went wrong here - cant Microsoft build in a fix for TrustedInstaller taking too much resource and achieving NOTHING ?]
Okay, so now I'd run ESET on my Archives external disk.
(Btw, when I first start the external hard disk Windows wants to scan it - is that dangerous to let 'windows' do that?)
