    cpu over specified threshold, heavy disk I/O several MB/s

    all while missing from my computer , in task manager saw something about some .Net framework doing stuff, some language don't know what optimization, then triggers also the antimalware service, windows update,something called tiworker (windows modules installer) that survived 3 restarts already and also disabling windows update

    I do no t want any of that.

    What can I do, there are tens , maybe one hundred as far as I know, services. A mire.

    Will I be able to still run a windows machine in 2013 with a really bare minimum services?

    Does switching to bblean as shell will get rid of many of them? But most surely don't because shell and services two different meals.At least that I will try it to see for myself.

    thank you if you decide for any advice and sorry to bother.

    What antivirus protection do you have?

    Is it expired or current?

    Do you have Bing Desktop installed?

    Heres a link with possible solutions, please read it completely as there are several possible fixes, one of which is to install an update and if the update fails to install then CHKDSK may be required to fix a bad sector which is hanging Tiworker.
