Author: Microsoft Corporation Security Rating:

The TrustedInstaller.exe process is a part of the Windows Modules Installer for Microsoft Windows Operating System. It is responsible for the management of Windows updates.


The TrustedInstaller.exe process is not an essential file to the computer system. Disabling it or enabling it depends on whether you use Windows Modules Installer or not.

It is a back door and i was finding it difficult to get rid of until i found a neat app called \"take ownership\" got rid of it straight away.

make sure the update is off, never update, turn off also the check for important updates In processor I notice it constantly sends signals otherwise, CPU is on constantly. Just use a good non MS firewall like PrivateFirwall .

Integral part of Windows. If you don\'t trust it, use Linux instead. Calling it untrustworthy because you didn\'t do the research isn\'t helpful to others.

TrustedInstaller is used by a service called “Windows Module Installer” which is used to install Windows 7 system modules. The system modules include Windows Update and Automatic Updates which automatically scans your system to check for any new updates and hotfixes available. So when scheduled Windows Update is performing its update scan or check on your system, the TrustedInstaller.exe process increases the CPU usage.

I takes a lot of cpu and ram. I hear from microsoft, it is a service which takes care of looking for updates for your computer. Only if you are running windows vista or windows 7, it is trustworthy...
