How do I tell what TrustedInstaller is up to?

    Hi All,

    I am watching my CPU usage on my Terminal Server. TrustedInstaller.exe
    seems to be active a bit of the time.

    Question: is there a way for me to tell what TrustedInstaller is
    installing? I would like to know, in case I can prune something
    to make my system go faster.

    Many thanks,

    I love Process Explorer. But, it failed me this time and just
    said TrustedInstaller without telling me what it was up to.

  3. Process explorer gives you some insight into what process is doing, but,
    Process Monitor will log almost everything, file access, registry access,
    network traffic, etc.
    Dowload it from Sysinternals and let it run for a while. Save the log and
    analyze it.
