So are these supposed to be running constantly on Win8 Pro x64? Also, when these are running, I can also catch msiexec running also. I shouldn't think they would. But the last few days they have been. Maybe it's time for a reformat? Any ideas?

I have researched all of them and they seem legit:

One could be running because you have a portable Usb drive attached-
Visual Studio installed or a program that has it installed.

I would probably do a Windows Update then a reboot.

Another may be if you have Chrome installed -- I would go into the options and about then check it for updates- quite possibly the "trusted installer" may be that trying to update in the background.

No Chrome installed and no portable drives going. Visual C++ is installed.

So you have had the OS installed what 3 minutes, guess its time for a format :rolleyes:

Thanx for the blatantly uneeded, not to mention, unwanted, sarcasm. If you have nothing informative to add, you can just walk away. Thank you.

This may sound crazy-- but I found another board that suggested these fixes.

Call up "services.msc" look for the ones dealing with the Windows Installer then stop the service as well as the WMI 's.
The WMI it suggested stopping and starting it.

It was also suggested to look for the c:\windows\prefetch then delete all that is in there and reboot-- "this may take some time for it to restart" (some may say this does nothing , but two people said it helped the process stop quicker after first install)

Those suggestions - I saw say fix 1/3-1/2 of the issues you described.

One of the fixes said probably -- the installer itself never gave the successful termination and therefore keeps running... By stopping the service it won't start again until you install something. That will probably give a successful termination.
The Wmipvse - the suggestion of that restarting was that it would try again to finish successfully.

Other than doing a defragmentation (unless you have an SSD) I have not found much on the rest of the services.

I'm not sure when this actually started. But I'm thinking it was when I installed the Win8 app for The WB. So should I maybe try and uninstall that app and see what happens if the problem reoccurs?

Well if the application works-- I would not mess with it-- it is possible and is a common error with bad coded applications.... they don't tell the installer they are done and usually does not get cleared out until the next thing that is installed or a reboot.

Well, the app works for the most part. But when I try and watch a full episode of something, it actually takes over a minute for it to load the show and then stutters like Hell. So I haven't really used it.

I would probably look for some program options-- sometimes they have things like pre-loading or flash storage (if flash) usually through the right click. Either that or disk space usage.. sometimes if flash based you could go for the quality and set that to medium. In some cases that takes the skipping out.

Yea, they don't have any settings at all.

Well, the problems started up again and I removed The WB app and all the issues just stopped.
