  • Hi,

    TrustedInstaller.exe is Windows Module Installer service which is part of Windows Resource Protection.

    Windows Resource Protection (WRP) is a technology that restricts access to certain core system files, folders, and registry keys that are part of the Windows installation. WRP prevents files with .dll, .exe, .ocx, and .sys file extensions from being modified or replaced.

    Protecting these key resources is important to overall system stability, and, as such, they can only be modified by the Windows Module Installer service (TrustedInstaller.exe). If someone with administrative rights attempts to modify or replace a file that is protected by WRP, he will be presented with the message "Access Denied".

    If you change TrustedInstaller settings, you put your system at risk and your system may not function properly. It’s not suggested to remove it.

    However, if you still want to disable it, you can try to disable User Account Control (UAC) which uses the Trusted Installer account.

    Meanwhile, I listed detail steps to take ownership of file/folder.
    1. Please navigate to the target file/folder.
    2. Right-click on the file/folder and choose Properties.
    3. Click the "Security" tab and see if your current user is listed in the "Group or user names" list. If not, please click Edit-> Add button, type the name of your current user in the "Enter the object names to select " box, then click "OK" to add this group.
    4. Select the user from the list and then check the "Allow" checkbox next to "Full Control".
    5. Click the Advanced button and click the "Owner" tab. Then, press "Edit" button.
    6. Select current user from the list and check the "Replace owner on subcontainers and objects" checkbox.
    7. Click "OK" to save changes and wait for Windows 7 to transfer the ownership of all the objects on the partition.
    8. Click OK again to save changes and exit the Properties window.

    Hope it helps.

  • When you say trusted installer?  Do you mean Windows Installer 4.5?  Are you talking about click once deployment?

  • Your english is fine. But all you did was copy/paste.

    This doesn't help us disable Trusdtedinstaller.exe, which takes up a GODLY amount of my processor.

  • I do not have an answer to your question... however I actually found this utility that will help to restore TrustedInstaller as owner if you find yourself having to change owners on a directory that TrustedInstaller is the default. 

    How to Restore “TrustedInstaller” as Default Owner of a File, Folder or Registry Key in Windows

    Hope it helps.  Good luck.

  • Your company's idiotic placement of automated 'system security' over accessibility has managed to install tablet PC interface software to my desktop. Fortunately Microsoft did actually bother to create a backend so that I am not permanently locked out of my own [vulgarity deleted] computer by your inane attempts to make computing as lazy as humanly [vulgarity deleted] possible.

  • I too am infuriated by this attitude problem MS has. I need permission from MY COMPUTER to delete WMP! my computer wont let me stop unnecessary resource hog programs from slowing it down. Like it's a stubborn grandma who has diabetes and it refuses to take insulin. Maddening!

  • To completely disable "Trustedinstaller" Simply go into main hard-drive's properties then make "administrators" own the hard-drive. After just remove all permissions to "SYSTEM" and grant all permissions to your computer (will be listed as the computer name) and administrators, then boom youre done.

  • Not worth the time it took to read.
    It couldn't work because of the way TRUSTEDINSTALLER works and what it does for the OS.

  • This procedure does NOT give you any additional control over any system-protected in the WINDOWS directory.

  • Yes I am having problems with my windows 7 laptop because of trusted installer - every time I go online my laptop system resources go through the roof - my laptop freezes and jams up!!!  75%+ cpu & 93% system resources - WHY!!! don't give my that rubbish about windows updating, it updates pretty much on its own accord; which is bloody annoying to say the least [instead of asking the user].

    I've switched off updates, to stop it all-together but that did not stop it....alternative to this issue??? - don't go online.... which is pretty pointless.

    Solution: stop doing things without the users consent - there, simple. Just ask the user "Are you ready for updates?"

    Job done. Can't stand MS - full of you know what.

  • The "key" resources mentioned are in fact the whole windows directory. This puts files like the hosts file (system32 dir) off limits. This is a user modified file! All of this on top of possible Fourth Amendment issues, and Fifth Amendment questions surrounding answering the shrink wrap packaging. Am I incriminating myself in answering? I don't think you can make me answer that. 

    My bottom line, the new update process has wiped my install of win10, and did a reinstall without permission or asking. So, Brain surgery, removed update. Everything works great, till, an update slips in, dies half way through, and puts the machine in a BSOD loop, great! Now over 48 hours later, still waiting on reset to finish. Good job letting us know the duration on that option! All of this hassle is 100 times worse when M$ tries to claim eminent domain on my personal hd. No it is not yours, if it is, pay me room and board, the OS is eating up a lot of electricity! Or, get trusted installer off my machine!
