TrustedInstaller.EXE Pain In The Ass

I've been working with Windows Vista Enterprise a bit and i've found something quite annoying. There are processes that seem to take up 100% of the CPU. Now they don't always individually consume 100% but they each take say 20% and with five of these going at the same time your now using 100% of your CPU and your PC slows down. Trusted Installer is one of these processes that is especially annoying. It seems that it may be related to the windows update service. The name is suspicious but it is ineed part of the Windows Vista operating system.
