It will also make you restart your computer if it finds anything wrong.
Now, press the Windows key and the R key at the same time.
Type in: At the System Configuration console, click on the Services tab.

Look for the Windows Module Installer, it should now be on the list.
If it is not started, right-click and select: Start
If still no joy, we may need to replace the TrustedInstaller.exe in C:\Window\Servicing, or do a repair install.
