Hi

After a recent reinstall of Windows 7, I notice a high CPU usage most of the time. In task manager I see that TrustedInstaller.exe is constantly using anything from 10% to 60%, mostly about 50%.

What is this and what can i do about it??

thanks!

Switch Microsoft automatic updates off and see if it goes away.
