    windows modules installer

    Hi, I have a lot of restore points piling up in my list of restore points with the title "windows modules installer." Almost one every day. I cant find anything matching in event viewer or task manager. Anyone know what this is and how to get rid of it? Appreciate your help.

    Have a read about all of this here: Defender update frequency normal?

    I recommend you disable System Restore if you don't need it and do a lot of backups with a tool like Macrium Reflect or similar.
