    I've been running Vista Ultimate for about 2 months, and am so fed up with
    it, that I'm ready to junk my computer. I did try to revert back to XP, but
    unfortunately I can't get drivers for my laptop for XP. I have no choice but
    to run Vista, and I am serious P.O.'d about it. My absolute #1 complaint, is
    TrustedInstaller. This P.O.S. service will run at random, and nearly halt my
    machine. YES, it ony runs for a couple of minutes, but it seems to have a
    knack for knowing when I am the most busy, and when freezing my machine is
    not my first choice of actions. It amazes me that after almost 30 years of
    software development, MS doesn't have the forsight to run a process like this
    during lul's in pocessor activity, or at least run it at a low enough
    priority that it doesn't complete disrupt what you are doing. I can't find a
    way to stop this process, I can't kill it, and if I disable it in the
    Services menu, I contantly get warning and errors because it is turned off.
    Is there ANY way to get relief from this? Is there any way to set it up to
    only run in the wee hours of the morning, or maybe only when my screen saver
    pops up (indicating that I am not using my machine?)

  4. Hello Brian,
    You may want to try public release of SP1 for Windows Vista.
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsvista/bb738089.aspx
    There are some changes in that RC1 release of SP1 to reduce the amount of
    time trusted installer runs as well as some changes to reduce the amount of
    time some of the components request a check for updates( the component
    makes the request to check for updates which triggers trusted installer to
    run). Since the call can be per component, various compoments that make
    requests can request at different times.
    Automatic Updates is just of the calling components and it can be set to
    run at a specific time. Not all components that make individual requests
    to check for updates have that option.
    If you install updates that require a reboot, after the reboot trusted
    installer may run after the reboot to complete the installation of the
    packages.
    Thanks,
    Darrell Gorter[MSFT]
