    Windows Modules Installer Worker - high CPU usage

    Hi Gregory,

    The Windows Modules Installer Worker is a background application that checks for new updates from the Windows server and install them in your computer. It's task takes high usage of CPU that causes load on the system especially when Windows Update is running.

    We recommend that you check the following first:

    • if your device is running the Scheduled Automatic Maintenance
    • if the Windows Update is running and installing
    You may check the resolution provided by TnTzzz on this thread.

    Update us with the results.

  3. Windows Module installer worker  with high cpu

    Hi Kelly,

    On a Windows 10 PC, the CPU fan sometimes runs very fast and makes noise because of Windows Module Installer Worker occupies more than 50% of the CPU.

    Let us isolate the issue by changing Windows update to manual mode. Follow the steps below and see if it helps:

    • Press Windows key + R and type services.msc.
    • Search for Windows Modules Installer.
    • Double click the Windows Module Installer.
    • Change the Startup type to Manual.
    • Go to Settings and select Update &
      security.
    • Click on Windows Update.
    • Click on Advanced options and change Automatic (recommended) to Notify to schedule restart.
    • Reboot your PC.

    Please do get back to us for further assistance.
