It might show the name windows modules installer worker, in the Task Manager but its file name in “TiWorker.exe” which can be viewed in the “Details” tab.
Why does it use a Large Percent of the CPU?
To be precise, this process that takes up such a huge amount of CPU is relatively normal on Windows 10. The function fact about this process is that if you continue to let it run on the PC, it will do its work and stop its process.
As a result, the use of CPU stops. The problem is, that the time period of usage depends completely on the CPU speed. It also depends on the required updates for the PC.
