TiWorker.exe

Hi ! I have a very interesting problem, here it is: when I simply do my work on my computer, this program named TiWorker.exe pops out of nowhere and uses ~50%  of my CPU for absolutely nothing. I heard it's a part of a windows update installation program, but I really don't think so. If so, then why it suddenly disappears when I open the task manager? Is my computer playing jokes on me ? Do I really have play this hide-and-seek game with this program? I hope to find some kind of solution to this problem. I've tried everything that I could find online: turn off windows update from services.msc and so. Temporarly, it seems that I've found some kind of bridge, if I keep the task manager opened, it would literally "scare" TiWorkes.exe and prevent it from happening. Although it may seem funny, trust me, it isn't ! Thanks for reading this and trying to help, I really appreaciate all of that.

tiworker is the windows Trusted Installer.

Maybe some update keeps trying and failing to complete.  Just a guess.

I might open command prompt admin or powershell admin and run these commands to cleanup(delete) the updates folders/files.

First try analyzing component cleanup and if it says to, run the cleanup;

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /AnalyzeComponentStore
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup

Then the updates cleanup, followed by Restarting the computer.

paste them all in at once is OK, one will fail, that's OK too;

net stop wuauserv
net stop cryptSvc
net stop bits
net stop msiserver
Del C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr*.dat
Del C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Network\Downloader\qmgr*.dat
Ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.bak
Ren C:\Windows\system32\catroot2 catroot2.bak
