    Hello. I have same problem which its solutions are described here. I tried “first way” bith to manal and windows module installer worker keeps using my cpu somehow. I tried “second way” and the first try it found around 5-6 problems which were fixed. After restart I ran the tool again and it found 3 problems which were fixed. I restarted again and ran the tool and, again, it found 3 problems which were fixed. Seems to me there should be something else (which I have no clue of what may be) because its finding and fixing the same problems three times in a row.

    What Windows Update says is the following.

    Troubleshooting has completed.
    Problems found!
    (1) Service registration is missing or corrupt. FIXED! (GREEN CHECK)
    (2) Windows update error 0x80070490(2016-07-04-T-11_57_15P). FIXED! (GREEN CHECK)

    I have an interesting problem –
    Windows Modules Installer Worker works, takes some memory, CPU, and HDD usage, but Windows Update is up to date, and not looking for or doing anything. Is it possible to find what exactly that process doing in that moment?
