    I've seen posts for months about what a piece of crap TrustedInstaller is.
    It constantly goes out, buries the CPU, and otherwise makes Vista totally
    useless. Of my list of 100 annoyances about Vista, this has to be the #1.
    Is there any way to shut this off? I'm not one of those NOOBS incapable of
    doing my own updates, why does MS deem fit to kill my machine and check for
    updates so often?

    If my laptop had drivers for XP, I'd go back in a heartbeat.

    That might not be a good idea. Im a trusted installer noobie. Ive been
    reading posts about trusted installer and it sounds like windows update uses
    it. Trusted installer is in the file permissions. That might cause a problem
    for vista. This may be correct or incorrect

    Yes - either back install XP or try LINUX. As a CIO for a large company my
    personal experinece has lead me to the opinion that I would not remotely
    consider upgrading any user in our 20+ thousand work force to Vista. On my
    home computer, not running all the corporate overhead software, the machine
    is continually rendered useless by "trusted installer". Also, other packages
    also have problems (WMP for example). I'll probably spend time tomorrow
    downgrading my machine back to XP so I can again be poductive at home. Thank
    god I didn't subject any actual users to this OS.

    Machine at home specs - P4 3Ghz, 2GB RAM, Vista ultimate edition - this is
    beyond what most of the machines at my office run

  7. Hello,
    Servicing is now now working on your system
    Trustedinstaller is what is used to update the OS,
    So this implies that the you are no longer updating the OS.
    Patches should not install
    Security updates should not install
    Service Packs should not install
    Optional Components should not available
    plus other packages that attempt to update OS files through supported OS
    means.
    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]
