Windows 7: Trustedinstaller runs all the time..

Trustedinstaller runs all the time..

Hello,
Recently, Trustedinstaller has started to run continuesly on my rig, occupying up to 60% CPU capacity.
I have tried to restore to an earlier time point, where I not had this problem, but with no success.
2 months ago, I did a complete reinstall of the OS, and it has been working flawlessly until a couple of days ago, when this started.
How can I stop this program from running all the time?

Best Regards,
Anders

Anders what anti virus and malware are you running?

I would start by downloading malwarebytes and running it in safe mode. If it finds nothing then I would run a system file check to verify and repair your system files

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

ZigZag,

I am running Bullguard Internet Security ver. 10, which includes antivirus, malware, spyware, firewall, etc.
I will later today run the programs you suggested.

Hello,

I ran Malwarebytes, it found three Malware, that then were removed/quarantened. But problem still is there.
Then I tried to run SFC /Scannow, but it comes up with a message, that "Windows rescource protection does not allow this action to take place".

What other possibilities are there now?

WDC Green: 750 GB runs Hot, 4 TB runs Cool ???
I have two external hard drives, both in Vantec NexStar3 USB enclosures. The older 750 GB WDC Green drive runs HOT to the touch, the 4 TB, and the 2 TB before that, run pretty warm but never hot. Why might this be, and would that much heat cause earlier than necessary drive failure?
