    Getting many Windows Module Installer entries in System Restore Points


    Hi. I've found a lot of Windows Module Installer entries when I check my SR points, sometimes on a daily basis. If no SR points were created a System Checkpoint will be created after 7 days after a previous SR point which is normal. If I Scan for affected programs nothing is shown (unless I installed or uninstalled a program prior to these restore points) Does anyone know what these Module Installer Updates are for or what's supposed to be updated?.
    I deleted all SR points and rebooted then created a restore point manually 2 days ago and so far no Windows Module Installer entries.
    Thanks, Mark

    MS changed something in Windows Defender (Windows Defender Verification Task in Task Scheduler). When that task runs Windows Module Installer creates a system restore point. These are done daily now and we haven't found a way to stop them, short of Turning Off System Restore. Why and What they are for, we're not sure.

    Note: if a restore point has been created in the last 24hrs, then a new one won't be created.

    Thanks, Eagle 51! That issue was really bugging me. Plus the fact that Microsoft never fixed the Windows Defender scan issue (result0x2). Created my own task to run a scan daily which works fine. Overall I liked Windows 7 the best. Very stable and no issues to my knowledge. Thanks again for your reply.
