    Must troubleshoot Windows Update after EVERY restart

    TiWorker.exe is always hogging half of my RAM and to fix it, i troubleshoot Windows Update where it fixes the following:

    Potential Windows Update Database error detected 0x80070490
    Windows Update components must be repaired
    The problem is that i have to do this at every restart with he same results; "fixed."

    How do i fix this?

    Edit: it actually happens every time i do troubleshoot, not just after a restart.

    Try run the SFC tool:

    "According to a member of the German-language Dr. Windows forum, which was one of the first sites to spot the problem, the issue can be solved by running the Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) command below with administrative privileges:

    DISM /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    While this process takes some time, it should prevent the CPU from being overloaded with spurious analysis and error logging. Thus far, Microsoft has not commented on the flaw in the update, nor has it indicated any plans to release a patch of its own for the issue."

    Thanks for the replies and sorry for the slow response. i have been so busy. i will try the above methods. It seems like if it isn't TiWorker.exe hogging my resources, then it is updates.exe or svchost

    i successfully downloaded updates, but it hasn't changed troubleshooting results. still the same old two problems that continuously get fixed. It TiWorker was hogging half my resources for a few minutes after login, but that seems to have subsided. i bought a bluetooth mouse, though, and when i connect it, my bluetooth keeps going on and off and on and off. i reinstalled the drivers and set Bluetooth AVRCP Devices power management to not turn off allowing the computer to turn off bluetooth to save power, but it did nothing. i tried to do the same to Bluetooth HD Device, but it crashes windows.

    Not sure if the problems are related though. most likely not
