    Windows powershell/module installer query

    Hey all
    Since yesterday i have noticed for about a few seconds every 20 minutes something seems to trigger windows powershell and the module installer service. I'am aware that both programs are essential so i'm wondering if this simple just routine maintainance or not. I have done the usual antiviral scans with came up empty or were non related with this (i had PUPs which were inside chrome but after uninstalling chrome, malwarebytes scans came back clean). I have provided a screenshot to show you what i have seen in the event viewer and task manager and whether I should be concerned or not. It does not any any impact on performance but it is a bit worrysome for me

    Update (0118 GMT): for curiosity i ran the scannow/ sfc which said i needed to restart due to system repair. After i did this power shell des not have appear to have run since but i will wait at least 24 hours before marking as solved.
